I loved this place! It felt more like a home than a hostel! Dan the manager was great, friendly and good fun. I liked that he spent time mixing and chatting with people staying at the hostel. Katie was nice too. She gave me a lift downtown as she was heading there. I met some great travellers here. The option of free pasta dinner each night was great. You have to cook it yourself but it's a nice way to mix and spend time with fellow travellers at the hostel. The hostel offers lots of free stuff, breakfast, pizza and Internet. The back terrace has a hot tub (could do with a light outside here) and the front has a terrace where you can sit and relax on a sofa or swinging bench. The dorms are clean, lockers are not the best in the mixed dorm but I never felt this was an issue as it was such a small friendly place. Hostel is located very close by to bars and a fantastic deli that sells the best sandwiches. Downtown is not far also. I had planned to stay for 2 nights but stayed for 4. I would have stayed longer if I wasn't on such a time scale. I was sad to leave! I would highly recommend this place!!
