“cool youth hostel”
Reviewed March 26, 2010

This place was great-you get a private room with phone and TV. There was internet, coffee shop and met some great people. It did get a little noisy at night with some drunken young people outside (not at the hostel).

Stayed August 2007, traveled with family

Very good location. It is a simple cheap accomodation. We liked the kitchen where we could make breakfast. The manager and his son were helpful and friendly - they've renovated the place by themselves - hard work.

I found the management to be rude and stuck up, the place overall was inexpensive and quite but the service was terrible, I have never felt so intimidated by a business owner, I would never stay there again.

Very clean, manager friendly and helpful. We stayed in a private room - great for a hostel! Clean, more like a really nice budget hotel. The only downside is it is not very sound-proof.

Never having stayed in a hostel before after readng the reviews which seemed good decided to take a chance and rent one of the two bedroom apartments. While the apartment was clean and seemed quite new the rst of the building we were in was disgusting with garbage littering the upstairs hallway. We did not feel safe as the lock on our door was not the best .Maybe I expected too much from a hostel but do think the manager should have at least cleaned the halls Would not stay there again..

We stayed here one night while passing through to the ferry. We were pleasantly surprised about how nice this place is for the money- we had a family room that was very comfortable. We were able to walk to a grocery store and get dinner supplies, and the kitchen had all that we needed.

served our purposes having a family room and a twin across the hall. unfortunately there was no one operating the cafe when we were there but food is not far away in town.
the neighbourhood is a little dicey and another guest's car was broken into when we were there.
shopping and restaurants in cow bay are great, and there was a nice park on the way out of town where you can do a small hike.
