    A truly fantastic experience. The manager went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay at the hostel. The location is absolutely superb, as are the facilities. I give the place 10 out of 10. Thank you.

    We spent 3 nights here in a double ensuite room with tea / coffee making facilities. Comfy bed, big towels, good sized room. Friendly place with good kitchen facilities, excellent wifi. Recommend this hostel.
