this place is a little gem. (not sure what the review below was on about).
the hostel is located just outside the city centre. just close enough to wlak each day but no so close as to have all the hussle and bussle. it is also slap bang between the centre and the Valley (if you wan nightlife). both are 10 minutes each way.
the hostel has recently been taken over by Chris and Wendy (maybe the last reveiwer stayed before then). Chris and Wendy are both really nice people and so friendly. they remembered my name for the whole 4 days i was there - that was a great touch.
the hostel is clean and tidy and a little like being in a house share.
i would highly recommend this place if, like me, you like a quieter side and want to get to know people. or are travelling alone or especially new to backpacking.
this place is for you. thanks to Chris and Wendy for making my stay a great one. i will be back
