  • Great hostel atmosphere, super friendly and helpful staff. It was a shame I was only booked to stay for three nights but they were great. Only thing is wifi does not reach the far rooms, but that really isn't a problem since you wont be spending to much free time locked away in your room if you know what is best!

  • Rude receptionists and an ever worse manager. You can stay at the hostel next door. It's called the Brodies and its cheaper and more worthy. Internet connection sucks and they know it but they dont do anything for it.

  • Nice hostel. The location is great - right in the center of town. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the facilities were perfectly adequate. My stay was short and I did not spend much time at the hostel, but it seemed that there was plenty of opportunity to meet and hang out with fellow travelers. Seems like a good place for either a short or extended stay.
