    Laid back hostel. I felt completely relaxed here. Double rooms are spacious and clean. Overall the whole place is tidy. I was lucky enough that there was always a shower or bathroom available when needed. Chocolate pudding at night really encourages people to socialize :)...More

    Hi, there is only a double room available for the dates I'm looking 5/4 - 10/4 for $70/night. I've read that you sometimes can reduce the rate for one person, is that so? Also, is the bathroom for that room shared with another room or is it with many of the occupants? Cheers Suzann
