Amazing hostel right next to the centre of town. Great service from airport pick up to bike renting. Free breakfast, with free tea and coffee all day. Had a great stay and would definitely recommend as it's well priced too!

One word of warning is to make sure you lock all your valuables away; two people had... More

We stayed in a private room, located in a separate two storey block from the dorm rooms. The room was alright but with stains on... More
