    One of the best hostel I have been so far. The location is good, the building is great, the rooms spacious, tidy and neat: the kitchen and common area and bathroom really clean. The staffs are friendly. It is very Quiet. I totally recommend

    We'd planned on staying 2 nights but one was more than enough! So dreary and depressing. Our ensuite room was a reasonable size, with all the charm of a prison cell, but the bathroom was truly basic. Not even any soap and impossible to regulate...More

    Hello Greenings, just to let you know, we replaced the kettle as soon as someone came into the office and let us know about it. We always have spare utilities in storage. I find your comments referring to other customers as "inmates" quite disrespectful.

    Your booking was a walk in booking during our peak season. With walk in bookings we try to keep people in the same room so they don't have to move but sometimes this is not possible if the rooms are booked for the following day....More
