    The place is very clean, facilities is well equipped and great for travellers/backpackers. The room is very spacious, however, it could do with a mirror in the room, I had to walk out just to comb my hair.

    Solo rooms are small but meet your needs. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The kitchen is well equipped for many people to cook at once. Laundry machines available for a small fee

    Good one night stay

    Only stayed one night but enjoyed it. Kitchen is great, we had a double room, was a bit small but nothing really to complain about. Could probably do with another bathroom upstairs

    Very clean, super quiet hostel, hot tub was excellent. Close to restaurants. They offer breakfast but if you bring your own food, their kitchen is superb! Very well designed, clean, great ambiance.
