The manager was lovely we had been drinking too much goon so was lovely to relax for a few days more like an apartment with your own facilities really clean at the same time which was great

  Customer Review 

Great location, just a brief walk to the beach and some shops. Nice set up with cooking area and balcony. Free transfers to/from greyhound coach station.

  Karen G... 

Quiet, comfortable dorm with only 3 beds, table side lamp and bedside table, all nice touches. Helpful staff, close to beach, no cost bicycles useful for jumping on one to go to the shops or further along the esplanade (e. g. to the pier), great value laundry facilities. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

  Customer Review 

The hostel is extremely nice for individuals who look for a calm spot to stay. It is extremely clean along with the rooms are equipped with 3 power outlets per person! The communal area which is shared by 3 rooms only is extremely new and has a massive TV and a comfortable sofa. The cooking area is massive and has enough spot to sit. You have free WiFi which is extremely fast and you can hire decent bikes for free! We booked two tours with the extremely friendly receptionist Gary. It all worked extremely well. You get free breakfast with each tour booking. If you arrive by bus they pick you up for free. If you have to leave extremely early you can use the shuttle of the hostel next door!

  Customer Review 

I really liked the setting along with the individuals in the hostel. Another very good thing was, that even if you had booked a 4 bed dorm, you only get into a room with two other people, due to the fact the property owner thinks its better.

When we arrived there was a sweet on each pillow with a teddy bear! Warm and friendly staff and free bicycle hire so we could uncover a lot! Clean and lovely bright bedroom
