The Painted Turtle was an awesome hostel. One of my favourite. All the employees were super warm and friendly but Katryne and Amy in particular were really helpful and fantastic to hang out with. The hostel is always clean. Nice kitchen. Really social in the &'great room&'. Highly recommend the Painted Turtle :)

It&'s in downtown, the outstanding room with the cooking area is huge and extremely clean. Nice washrooms with showers in it. So it was like a private shower.

Close to downtown, a block from the harbour, felt safe here. Very clean hostel with wide open, airy kitchen/living area. No cost towel. There were 4 bath rooms on our floor, so no waiting. I would definitely suggest this hostel to others.

One of the nicest guesthouse I have been. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and tidy, extremely clean. The common areas are extremely nice, a lot games (a minifutball thing as well). Just lovely!
