Clean, decent hostel accommodation.
Shower was too hot or cold, nothing in between.
Excellent communal areas (Inc balcony), very pretty, well run, not noisy overnight, had a great stay.
Bed maybe a little soft.
Very clean, a nice quiet place, personal and caring service, homely, a relaxing feel about the place, lots of areas to relax in and spacious, the nicest backpackers I have stayed in. Great location too.I extended my stay as I liked it alot and generally I dont like most backpacker hostels as they can often be noisy or not very clean but this one is terrific.
Nice and quiet. Jake and all his staff were friendly! The house was very clean and more of a home vibe than hostel which was lovely. I would go back there tomorrow
