    The hostel is set in a charming garden. If the weather is nice you can take your breakfast out into the sunshine and smell the roses. There is a full kitchen to make food and a pleasant dining room to utilise. I stayed in a twin bedroom. It was clean and comfortable. As I arrived a bit later I found a welcoming note sticky-taped to the front door so I could find my key and room.

    Although clean, the bathroom arrangements were varied and a little difficult to find. There seemed to be only one shared shower and toilet room which was down the hall and around the corner. Along the corridor in the other direction was another toilet room and further along there was a row of sinks for hand-washing. Perhaps the place was once used as a halfway house or government or medical boarding house? It certainly seemed to be a building in transition. In my room someone else had their belongings stored in the cupboard.

    Quite place with nice garden

    Nothing. If you want some rest, this is the perfect place to be. Its like being home. If you want to meet some other backpackers, it is maybe not the best place for you
