          Great place to stay, the rooms were warm and they had a movie room so another movie marathon took place. Thousands of movies were available and the staff were very helpful. Wifi was once again chargeable. Where isn't? Great place though.

          Not a bad little hostel. I liked the common areas and the location was very good - not far from a supermarket or the main town. However, the beds weren't hugely comfortable and the shower was pretty useless. I'd stay here again for 1 night...More
