08 May 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I felt like I was staying at the house of a friend who's really low-maintenance. It's awesome because they just throw you the keys and show you around and they just want you to be comfortable. The two proprietors were really awesome and friendly and lovely. Other guests were the same. It's not a party hostel, thankfully, as I'm not into that, but it was a warm home-base, and I really felt privileged to be there.

29 November 2006 would recommend this property

Liked: The location, owners, use of their wonderful kitchen, video selections and a DVD player in each room! Qauint, overall perfect. I do have a problem with that party question, which seems to appear on all your questionnaires and of course it has to be answered or it won't go. Therefore, my answer is only there so that the survey will go, it does not reflect my views on it, as that was not my purpose. An N/A option might be adviseable.I would return to this hostel in a heart beat! They were wonderful!

Liked: Very friendly hosts. Great location & beautiful room. Even though it was located in the middle of the city, it's tucked away and feels very private. I would definitely book this hostel again in future.
