Danielle Degen

16 May 2007 Danielle would recommend this property

Liked: The Staff were all friendly and very helpful. By the end of my 5 night stay I knew almost everyone by first name, and we all got laong great. The internet service is excellent, meaning you can check your emails whenever you want to. The kitchen has an adaquate range of facilities and the patio/backyard was a really nice touch, as everyone would sit out there, in the morning you had someone to tlak to if your mate wasnt up yet and everyone got together at dinner. You can either keep yourself to yourself in this hostel or get in with everyone. It is completly up to you, either way I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
