"I stayed in a room with only 3 other people with an ensuite, which was a nice change from bigger hostel rooms. It was fairly quiet."

Liam Speirs

29 August 2008 Liam would recommend this property

Liked: Great breakfast and a pretty cool looking place. We were only there one night, so we didn't meet too many people, but it seemed like a fun place. Despite being not quite on the tourist trail, it was very easy to walk anywhere we wanted to, and the hostel felt very safe. The private rooms are a little small and the bright colours can be a little overwhelming, however. The showers were good, but the mens bathrooms on the 1st floor stunk.

Disliked: Liam left no negative feedback.
