    it is a cosy little hostel, no huge dorm rooms, simple but nice and clean. the outside area is really inviting. great to enjoy your food, and drinks, chat with others or relax in a hammock. stuff is nice and helpful.

    Everything was perfect at around the world, the staff is incredible helpful and friendly, very good music playing in the kitchen and maps all around! Just a perfect place to stay. Wifi works fine and the nice garden in the back is a win.

    Good facilities, pretty clean, had hammocks which was cool to chill, was very quiet. Could do with upgrading the kitchen utensils and letting people use the stoves after 11pm (work late etc) nice staff and just a decent hostel all round.

    Thank you for the great review. Our stoves and oven turn off between 11pm and 5am for safety and fire reasons but the kitchen is open 24 hours to use microwave, kettle and toasters etc. Thanks again and all the best.
