We can definitely recommend the hostel. We stayed there for 4 nights in an apartment for a small budget. The apartment was great. We had a kitchen, living room and a own bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy. The staff was very friendly and chilled. So far its definitely one of the best hostels we been!

Stayed in 6 beds female dorm. Room was extremely small, upper bunks did not have any safe barriers, there was only 1 small fan per room! 1 bathroom per 12 people! Very dirty! Would never stay there again!

Had a really great time here. BBQs most nights. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Nights out that they organise were really fun, rooms were clean and beds comfy. Showers could have been slightly better but weren't awful. All together had a really good stay, would go back.
