Great place to meet people from all over and even locals who come in for some tea! Sam and Dan have made this place feel cozy and welcoming for solo travellers such as myself or groups. Strong community feeling and I will definitely stay interested in how this new place continues to grow.

My friend and I stayed at Podstel Doors Hostel for 2 nights, and simply loved it. As soon as you come through the entrance, you get that rare feeling of being home again. Not in a bad way like having to go back home after your travels of course, but the feeling of finally finding that little haven of positivity...

I stayed at Podstel Doors for New Years eve 2017. We had a blast. There was a cool, chill out party in the tea room with lots of international people and a small band playing. This was by far, a very good beginning of the year. As I designer I really loved the combination of styles this place has. From...

Podstel is one of the best hostels I've come across in my travels. The new owners (Dan, Sam and Jase) are cracking hosts... they do not hesitate to help and already have a great knowledge of the city. The hostel itself is quaint, comfortable and homely. I look forward to returning to see the progress you've made... good job guys.

Podstel is easily one of the best hostels I've come across in over 7 months of backpacking. As a lone traveller I really felt at home, and most importantly, a part of something bigger - a community.
