I came back again. Tracy and Simon have created one of the best, if not the best, hostels on the planet. TravelinAlan has some credibility, having stayed in hostels on every continent (except Antarctica, which doesn't have any). You will feel at home.

Great and friendly staff, super chilled atmosphere, and a complementary brekkie sent us off happy and energized after a long day of traveling. Location's nice and there are shops nearby; as well as a bus stop (just around the corner).
