Comfortable hostel, beds were fine and showers were exceptionally clean. Free coffee and toast was great, but it was a shame that I didn't use the sky roof well enough, since the outdoor seating was cosy and nice. The reception provides very useful information in the form of leaflets/maps, plus the staff answer your questions well. Some tourists also donated...

We availed 5 pods in Lavender for 4 days, 3 nights. Room is so small that you can't walk along the aisle without bumping into others. But the bed is enough to accommodate 2 people inside. I had a hard time sleeping the first night because it was kinda hot in the lower part of the double deck bed. But...

My only issues here were that there seem to be several older women living on the premises, which was a bit strange for me. A couple of them were very territorial and rude to other guests in the ladies' dormitory. The Inn is also connected to the Green Kiwi hostel, so I didn't end up staying in Rucksack Inn-- which...

I stayed in MacKenzie a year ago and that was already a great one. I didn't expect much with Lavender since I was changing from a room to just a podbed but boy was I wrong. The podbed is spacious enough. Getting a good sleep is easy. Outside it's a genuine fun, laidback backpacker vibe. The food, while just limited...

Beds were very comfortable, there was complimentary coffee, tea, bread and jam until noon, wifi worked very good. I liked the rooftop terrace. It could be a little bit more clean in the bathroom area.

Clean and comfortable bed, clean room, clean toilets and bathrooms. Simple and nice breakfast. However, the landing on the second floor before the entrance needs more ventilation as the smell of the shoes was unbearable.
