Very friendly staff who make you feel at home. Veges and herbs in the garden and even a part-time resident cat. Kitchen is well outfitted and the bathrooms are clean.
Nothing. It ticks all the boxes.

Seamless”

The Staff were super understanding and helpful with my last minute booking and made everything easy and seamless with my late check in. I didn&#39;t get to meet any staff due to my short stay but they were super friendly and made the process straightforward. The people staying were also lovely. As i tall man, i really enjoyed the shower. The location makes it easy to walk around. Wifi was really good.
My only issue with my stay was the size of the bunks. As a tall man, I couldn&#39;t even sit on the edge of the bottom bunk. knowing that I probably would have gotten a bigger room.

Amazing friendly hostel. The communal areas were warm and cosy. The bedroom was tidy, warm and clean. Lots of storage space to keep things organised. Useful to have a drying room for ski equipment. Ideal location with 5 min walk to centre and easy to park on the street.
The bathroom facilities were okay but tricky to shower&#47;change and were shared between a lot of people.
