After reading the reviews I was worried about staying here however I can't agree with any of the previous reviews!
We had a great stay. Breakfast was simple but you get what you pay for. Nice big beds compared to some other hostels I've stayed at. Sheets were clean. We had a few queries for the staff and I think the man (owner?) was always helpful. We were a large group of 20 ish year olds and they really did a great job managing the booking, there are over 40 of us.
Only negative is there were only 2 power points in the 8 person dorm. But that has been the same at a number of hostels so nothing unusual... Had a great time here!
