I really liked the free breakfast and dinner. They also have lots of events, a nice living room with streaming movies, and hammocks/bean bags all over the place to relax after a long night in Little Italy or the Gas Lamp. The staff was really helpful as well, particularly Elliot and Gabriel.

Great atmosphere. Everyone gathers on the patio outside having drinks, chatting, getting to know each other. Fun activities, the pub crawl was awesome. Great location, close to the beach. Fun staff! Had a private ensuite which was a bit pricey but it was absolutely worth it! Best hostel I've been to. Super clean.

Chris and Diago at reception were really helpful and accommodating - I needed a bed late at night and had troubles with my bankcard and they patiently waited for me to sort that out. Chris offered me all the help he could and was very understanding of my situation. Pancakes for breakfast is great!
