The hostel has quite modest rooms, however, they are equiped with basic but useful furniture so you will find there everything what is necessary to live for a couple of days. There are also free coffe and biscuits each day. I know nothing about breakfast because we did not order one, but there is big kitchen near the reception desk... More

But, once you understand how the bus service works... More

Location - served by a regular bus which was really useful. Supermarket just down the road. Staff - Able to speak good English which was great! When my friend had a seizure, they knew exactly what to do in terms of calling an ambulance, closing the lounge to guests, and explaining to the paramedics what was going on/translating for us....

Been in this hostel for two nights. The place is quite tidy and it has a large parking space. The breakfast is quite varied and its good too. The only drawback is that you have to pay for the sheets and the towels and also the rooms are very small. We were 3 adults and two kids, you can imagine... More
