          We had a great stay at this cute garden hostel. Steven, Peter, and Gavin were delightful and helped direct us to nearby art galleries and bakeries, and the food was delicious! They have both private and dormitory-style group rooms.

          Overall great experience. The staff were hospitable but not overbearing. The rooms were comfortable and clean. When the electricity went out, they lit candles and used a generator to keep making us hot meals. Excellent service!

          As part of a university trip with 14 students, we stayed at the Backpackers Ritz in July of 2016 and had a grand time. Delicious meals, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere and a hilarious staff! Great for students, families or backpackers.
