  • I felt welcome and like part of the family as soon as I checked in. Holly was wonderful, helpful, professional, and very knowledgable.

  • I was miss informed on the website that this HOTEL was only for Students. I am not a student, I went to visit my Student daughter. I was not able to stay at the hostel. I slept in my car on the street. I still was charged the regular amount, even I did not stay. They did not want to give me a refund.

  • We called the manager to inform we were arriving late but still before closing time, nevertheless we received an sms later the evening with the question to inform them because they didnt hear of us. Obviously there was some bad commmunication. Our private room was so small we had problems to find some place for our luggage. We had to make our beds ourselves and didn't receive any towels for showering. As there were only pancakes for breakfast we didnt had breakfast in the hostel.Not recommended

  • The hostel was very chilled out. Small but friendly. Its one of the only affordable places to stay in the city. I loved making my own breakfast pancake and eating on the lovely porch. Holly was super friendly and right about EVERYTHING. She was great to chat to and get information from. Overall had a really great time!

  • Expensive but really good. Location is about 30 minutes walking from bus and train station, but the street is safe.

  • The only good thing is the rooftop deck, the rest is just rubbish, especially the bathrooms. Breakfast is just pancakes and coffee. Staff is very nice though.
