Upon arrival when I was ready to pay I didn't know that the rate I saw was with the BBH card, which we didn't have. The owner was kind enough and charged us the lower rate anyway, so I thank the hostel for the kindness. Our little double room was comfortable enough and the outside garden had an amazing view....

This is budget. So can't expect too much. We got a double super room. Ok and fairly clean but noisey coz near common room with lots of young people drinking till late.Won't stay again unless hard up for money. The rooms inside house smelt funny so lucky we didn't stay in there.

Worst hostel I ever been, looks like a beehive, the staff are terrible and arrogant, rooms are small dirty and smelly, the kitchen is small any they never wash the dishes. Honestly I've been in many bad backpackers but this is more the bad is disgusting

I've book 2 nights and went in a little earlier than check in time as I need to use the bathroom and wanted to check with the host if it would be safe to park my car on the street and would come back to check in later. Went to the reception, nobody's there so i buzz the bell, host...

This hostel had the cosiest and most 'home-like' bedding of anywhere that we've stayed with big pillows and a fluffy comfortable duvet. The room was basic, but clean, with enough space to put our things. We were in one of the first rooms in the corridor from reception, so we had a short outdoor walk to get to the bathrooms...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in one of the double rooms. The room was huge with beautiful views, the bathroom was right next to our room, so it felt like we were renting our own cottage. The location is a little out the way of the town center but only a 10 minute walk and you're...

5 minute walk to town, but a bit longer getting back due to the hill. Fantastic views over the wharf and beach areas. Super friendly hosts who go out of their way to make you welcome. Appears there are a number of long-term guests staying as well. Kitchen and common room are both awesome.Most definitely will stay here again. Bookings...

While the view from the hostel was beautiful, we wouldn't stay here again. The hostel is extremely old, the rooms are outdated and furniture is circa 1970. Not much of a hostel atmosphere. We did not use the kitchen facility, but it seemed to be an accomodating size. The wifi is only meant to work in the common areas, but...

This is a clean budget place to stay but a bit crowded. This is grea when you are there to socialize and meet new people. The main living area is fun, a big space where there is wifi. Overall a good place to stay.

Thank Bram B
