"Had the best view of the lake from our room! The location was also ideal, far enough from town to get some peace and quiet but close enough to have a good time in town when you wanted to. The staff were super lovely as…"

Customer review

12 April 2010

Liked: Unfortunately, I didn't like this property. I found it all distinctly average. The rooms were a bit worn and had dodgy, noisy plumbing. I've definitely stayed in much better hostels for much less.

29 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked that it wasn't near all the bars, but was only a 5-10 min walk from them. I am not a fan of en-suite bathrooms b/c it can be really loud with people taking long, late showers etc, which proved to be the case here. The bathroom was really clean though. The free beer on Friday night was nice and the common area & kitchen were spotless!

phillip callaway

11 August 2009 phillip would recommend this property

Liked: this is the kind of hostel that makes you want to stay on longer, which i did!! stayed 3 weeks in total, its a hostel designed to be a low cost accomadation arrangement and not a massive money maker like some of the bigger chains of hostels, there were a few people living there permanently and i can see why, top notch

Eric Finkelstein

05 August 2009 Eric would recommend this property

Liked: great location, near but not in the middle of town. It's a quieter vibe but I still found nice people to have some drinks with. Staff was helpful and the ensuite form rooms meant I was never waiting for showers. Only gripe us that all common room and ktchen facilities are locked at 11, requiring you to go to sleep or move the party to a bedroom. Still I'd definitely recommend bumbles, no tour bus crowd!!

Liked: Everything! The staff there were really friendly and extremley helpful. The place was always very clean and the location was perfect. Just less than a 5 min walk into town but just far enough away to escape the noise, not to mention the amazing view over the lake. The best hostel I have stayed in since I left home in January, everyone was so friendly it felt like a home from home.I would definatley recomend this hostel to other travellers.
