Great hostel in great location. If you're looking for a working hostel this is the place for you whether it's short term or long term. The staff are very friendly and always happy to help. Free breakfast every day too, and a free bbq on a Sunday!

This Hostel I can count to my lifes best experiences ever. The Service was always courteous and helped every tenant in every possible way. You could everytime joke around with the roommates. Everyone was friendly. It was a family.

Fantastic hostel, good rooms, and extremely helpful with finding work. Have already recommended and will continue to recommend more friends! Great options from budget rooms at really low prices to more private rooms in The White House for people like me staying long term.

“It depends on the time you go there. In summer it's nice to have a room in the basement, in winter I'd prefer one upstairs. I would't recommend the rooms with the windows towards the street because it can be noisy at night.”
