    This was my first hostel experience and it was a good one! The staff was nice and everything was clean. there was a shelf above the bed, an outlet in the bunk and a light that you can dim. The bed has a curtain so you can just be in your own space.

    The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel was modern and clean. We were in a private room with en-suite.
  • Lauren
    We stayed in a private double room. Very comfortable and spacious with an ensuite that seemed brand new! The TV in the room was a bonus. Beautiful view from the window of the neighbourhood. Kitchen facilities were very handy. Walkable location....
