This place is awesome! Clean and well looked after with lots of space. Kitchen is very tidy with plenty of cooking items to use. Also plenty of room to sit as well as a living room and reading room. I really appreciated the helpfulness of the owners; they kindly let me store my things for a few hours after I checked out so I didn’t have to carry them around with me while I was waiting for the Intercity. 10/10 would recommend, especially to any solo travellers wanting a comfortable, quiet, and clean place to stay.

This hostel is quite quirky in a older wooden building. We had a private room which was comfortable and there was plenty of bathrooms and showers to use. Used the kitchen which was large and we'll stocked.

I stayed here for 2 nights in a 6 bed dorm. The beds were all separate singles (no bunks) and comfy. The hostel was clean and plenty of space in common areas (kitchen, tv room, lounge, garden with laundry area and picnic benches). Showers were decent and there was a hairdryer. The hostel didn’t have any lockers but everyone in my room was really friendly so it didn’t feel unsafe. It’s only a 5 min walk to the i-site and central bus stops. All in all very good for the price.
