My friend and I had a short stay at the Steam Engine before starting our tour, but it was very pleasant. The room had several bunk beds (I took the middle bunk), but they were clean and occupied by other Canadians as well (surprisingly). I did not feel like my luggage was in any danger of being stolen as can be the case for other hostels. You are also able to store your luggage in a locked room during the day.
I did not think that I would enjoy the hostel life as much as I did. We met many amazing people while staying at the Steam Engine which also doubles as a local pub. The bartenders there (Daniel and Rense) were also very friendly and made the stay more fun! Shout out to them (thank you again Daniel for the tour!) :)
From the good drinks and friendly service hopefully you're stay at the Steam Engine is as pleasant as mine!
