“Friendly place but could be cleaner”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Very relaxed place and met some great people here - it seems to be the only budget accommodation in Rossland. Did seem a bit haphazard in the organisation and booking of beds. On the positives good place to meet interesting people and right on the main street of Rossland and has parking behind the hostel. On the negative side it is pretty noisy and not very clean - especially the bathrooms and kitchen, bin overflowing when we arrived and lots of dirty dishes in the sink and bathroom. Would have also liked better bedding - only a thin blanket and sheet provided and needed our own towels.

So laidback that the door was open and no one was around when I came in. So I hung out in the lounge room and eventually started cooking some dinner in the kitchen. Eventually a guy showed up, took some money and chilled out with me and another guy who also turned up looking for a bed for the night.
The dorm bunk beds are big, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms not bad. Location is great, right in "downtown" Rossland. Good place to stay as long as you're not into making reservations or planning ahead of time because I don't think anyone will answer the phone!
