staff was super friendly! the room was comfortable. there’s a nice kitchen and a great lounge. nice patio upstairs. i felt at home!
It was a cute and quaint little hostel with a good hot shower. :) Clean bed and kitchen.
Reception closes from 5 pm. Which also means you cannot put a bag in the storage room after then. This was an inconvenience for me as I arrived on the bus just after 5 with my ginormous ski bag which then needed to be carried up the narrow staircase. As I had an early flight the next day I did not meet anyone from the reception which was a unique experience for me.
We booked four people in the room. But they gave us five people. And then we thought the room is for girl but we are couple just only one man. It’s too weird. We hope u can check more carefully.
Loved this place! Rosie the host was so helpful and nice! The kitchen had plenty of free supplies, coffee, tea, seasonings and all the equipment! Beds were very comfy! I’d highly recommend!!
No lockers in the rooms and maybe a bit far away from the grocery store!! Minor issues!!
Very helpful staff. The common area is comfortable, the kitchen a friendly place. I enjoyed my time there , nice place to get to know people.
