    • Great location close to the train and the shopping centre with parking just outside. The hostel staff member was wonderful and friendly. It is extremely clean and has a BBQ!

    • Our room had air conditioning perfect for taking the chill off a mid winter night. The bottom bed of the tri-bunk needs a new mattress (it was very hard and we slipped into well worn hollows). We had the room beside the TV room at front of building and which faced the street - We experienced little to no noise during our stay and the morning sun streamed in here and warmed the room comfortably.

    • We had a wonderful time, fantastic staff were very thoughtful and went out of their way to make sure our accommodation was comfortable. We loved the homely atmosphere and met some nice guests. We thought it was very well run and safe. It was very clean and had a good country atmosphere. We are in the older age bracket and enjoyed the interaction with other guests and staff. It was close to everything
