I stayed for three nights with two of my kids, 5 and 6 year olds. They loved it and didn't want to leave. So much for them to do and other kids to play with. Lovely beach just down the road and a Lidl nearby for bits and bobs. I definitely want to go back. Staff were very friendly and...

This place had a feed good vibe. Big shared dining area, chilled fire pit outside area, BBQ that could be a DJ deck, staff with knowledge that care about the extra that is the newly created garden space and are willing to share some garden care tips. Ooh and not forgetting the climbing wall out the back. A really pleasant...

Beautiful building, spacious room (dorm), nice to sit outside on the deck after cooking my dinner in the well equiped but slightly messy kitchen. Very warm welcome. There was a group of young girls staying that was extremely noisy till quite late. No hostel staff seemed to say anything about it. I was too tired to get out of bed...

The price was right, everyone was extremely friendly, and the room was comfortable. I was worried about shared bathroom facilities but never had a problem with having to wait to access them. They offer many activities for people to do which is nice.

The hostel is a little bit outside the city so you have to walk a little while to get there. The rooms are quite cozy when there aren't too many people (cause then they just put more beds into the dorm). There is a room with tabletennis and pool and one room with some couches. There you also get wifi,...

Unfortunately I did not enjoy our stay. The place is more of an adventure centre than I imagined. The hosts were friendly. The place was quite rough on the outside and I was disappointed as we pulled up, there was rubbish in the grass out the back. The communal area was ok, although there were often crumbs on the table....
