I felt so at home at this hostel - had such a nice welcoming atmosphere amplified by the lovely, accommodating staff. Was nervous traveling solo but as soon as I was greeted by Andre on reception I immediately knew I as gonna have loads of fun at Flaming Kiwi. Gutted to be leaving, but I'll be back for sure!
