Could not have asked to stay at a better hostel. Both Tom and I felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived. There is a great atmosphere in the hostel and everyone is always friendly towards each other. Ben is an amazing host who is great fun to be around. Always wants to make sure everything is going well for you. He tried to ensure there is something happening most evenings. I stayed over the holiday period inclusive and couldn’t have asked to stay somewhere better. Felt very at home. I would recommend this place to anyone as it was a great experience and one that I will never forget!
