Bunk Bed in Male Dormitory Room
Stayed 1 night in March 2022

Very clean, comfortable and friendly”

The hostel is about 14 minutes walk from the harbour with beautiful views over the bay. I stayed in a dorm (3 bunks) and it was very comfortable. The shower was fantastic, had great power (one of the best I've ever used). The staff were also very friendly. This is my first time in a hostel in a good many years and I was surprised at how good the whole experience was. 5 stars from me!

Beautiful hostel with limited onsite parking.”

Parking is free, arrive early if you have a car. Absolutely beautiful hostel. I had a bay view from my bed. - the water pressure on all the taps are really high. I can laugh about it now but, the water from the shower created a wind current that blew my clothes off of the hook and into the water on the floor of the shower.
