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.
