Liked: Quite a nice place to come for a day or 2, rooms were cosy and the views were really good

Disliked: We paid for a 'private double' and when we arrived we got 2 single beds pushed together, we could have paid less for a twin and done that ourselves! Also the sheets were not very clean

Liked: We LOOOOVED the Valley Hostel. The staff is incredibly kind, the hostel is extremely clean and safe, there is a great kitchen to store and make your food, and it's in a great location. I wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. The best hostel I've ever stayed at (and much better than many hotels I've stayed at too). :)

Disliked: They book out early. So if you want a private room, book it early. We ended up staying in an 8 bed dorm room, which ended up being totally fine. But if you want privacy or are jetlagged, a private room may be better.
