We arrived at 3pm and check in was closed. We called both after hours numbers one of the numbers answered said to look for Wendy. We found Wendy she was rude but gave us our keys. The dorm room smelt and had a man living there. Check out day we wanted to leave our luggage in their luggage holdings but were concerned that reception would be unattended again but the woman at the counter said Wendy would be attending reception. After our hike reception was unattended and phone calls were unanswered we found Wendy in the smokers area we asked if after her cigarette if we could get our luggage (and another couple also waiting) she replied angrily I’m not working and you’re gonna have to wait. The service made us feel like we were walking on eggshells shells the whole time. Not worth it. Go to another hostel.

Friendly staff, great location, good vibe, with all the amenities. A great place to chill. Privacy, cleanliness and security are great. Budget friendly. Short walk to train station. Great for international travelers (after Covid). Great place for groups as there is plenty of space.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Stayed in the 2 share bunk room that was impeccably clean. All other facilities were up to the mark as well. The large communal kitchen made it easy to cook meals. Free washer - dryer made life easier as we ended up staying for longer. Everything you want to see in the BM is closely circled around this place : ) Big shout out to our friendly hosts!!

The visit here was wonderful, the staff helpful and delightful. The rooms were exactly fit for our purposes. Staff know the area well and advised us on the best walks, and the best eating & drinking places. I would stay here again.
