Being a small hostel, guests can meet and socialise easily. It’s famous for free ice cream provided at 9pm most nights, gathering guests together.

    • A brilliant little hostel in a great location. Tassie, the hostel owner, has taken alot of effort in providing useful information to all visitors and making the place special. It is unique and quirky hostel with a very homely feel. P.s the bed in the double room (no3) was very confortable.
