A gem of a hostel; stay here!
Richard & Rachel work really hard to keep the place spotless and make sure your every need is met.
The wifi is free & fast, the washer is $3 with free laundry detergent. There are nearly 50 beds but you wouldn't know it as there are two kitchens and innumerable showers and toilets. I stayed when the place was booked out and there was plenty of groceries space, fridge space and no problems with waiting for cookers, bathrooms etc.
Lounge areas and outdoor spaces are also uncrowded and are set up in a way that makes interaction comfortable & easy ... or if you need some space, there's plenty of scope for that too - including a couple of hammocks.
Everything is painted in bright colours and kitchen & bathroom facilities are top of the range and in great condition.
There are also free bikes to borrow, which is handy as town is a 15 minute walk away.
You won't regret staying here. It really is super fab!
