JAMES BYRNE

21 August 2009 JAMES would recommend this property

Liked: They won the award as the best in England and the award was as it should be. They are the best. But I think you have to stay in a bad hostel to really appreciate the 'extra' effort the staff makes in doing its job. The place is kept so well and the events are daily and well attended. I would also point out that they give the internet away in contrast ot all of the others I have stayed. That made a big difference in my daily costs.

Matthew Berger

15 February 2009 Matthew would recommend this property

Liked: It has a great homey feel with lots of character and all the staff are extremely nice. you can tell they are proud of the place and take care of it. They even take each new arrival around on a quick tour--living room, kitchen, bathrooms, dining room--the last time someone showed me around a hostel was like five years ago. not much in the immediate neighborhood, but closer than the other hostels in canterbury and it's kinda nice being in a, like i said, homey and cozy place on a cozy residential street.
