Clean, spacious, cosy, friendly, excellent location. Just perfect! By far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Plenty of room to chill and things to do in the hostel if you don't feel like going out. Beds are comfy and staff are lovely

This is my first time staying in a hostel and I was pleasantly surprised. The beds are comfortable, the staff are wonderful, the entire facilities are kept very clean, and the lobby/main floor area is extremely versatile (Kitchen, dining table, living room w/TV, lounge space, foosball, pool table, piano, guitars, book case, board games, etc....). The location couldn't be any...

I stayed in this hostel for one night whilst on a tour, and the location was perfect! It is right around the corner from the main street, and is literally a 5 minute walk!

The best hostel I've stayed in! Common area was large, comfortable and easy to meet people. Room was large even with a fridge, sink, plates and cups. Beds were comfortable. Location was perfect. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially Bow who generously shared some of his pizza with me at 4am after I learned every food outlet was closed....
