Stayed here one night in a twin shared room all to myself so I had a grest sleep, not much noise in the hostel in general, very good atmosphere. Good privacy, but also social and friendly. Nice garden, indoor space is small but welcoming. All I needed was there. Piko wholefoods just down the road! Zoey worked the reception and always had a positive friendly precence, helped me out to plan my day. Thank you Zoey! I would stay here again. Markus from Norway

Late night arrival so didn’t research much. Bed was comfy. Lone female sharing room with single man was a surprise. Used the shared bathroom - it was okay. Couldn’t use female bathroom as someone had vomited in sink. Waited till 8am when reception opened to report this, but at 8.10am still no one showed up, so I left. I needed a bed, cheap, and that’s what I got.
