Really fun, sociable hostel. Nice and relaxed with a nice outside space for socialising. The showers are good.
A 5 / 10 min walk from the lake, 5 mins from liquor stores / supermarkets etc. Good location.
The hostel is a bit small / cramped to be fair. The kitchen is small and there isn’t too much storage space for food when the hostel is full.
The TV area isn’t the most comfortable but it’s a good tv, great place to chill out / watch a film / socialise and there is a great selection of films.
I spent Christmas here and am going back for New Years. If you want a quiet night or two I am not sure this is the place for you, if you want to meet new people, be close to the lake and don’t mind a bit of a squeeze in dorms then this a good place to hangout.
