  • Only stayed one night. Came in late and left early next morning. The staff was extremly helpful and kind. Nice people staying at the hostel - only travellers. Big dorms and good beds! Very good value for money! The Internet however kept disconnecting me. Was a bit annoying..

  • Nice place, quite modern upstairs where the rooms are. Very open common areas. Wasn't very busy when I was there, but still good. Can imagine would be a great place during busy season. Easy to find and handy for local shops. Plenty parking available free
