    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in, and I’ve stayed in about twenty across Oceania, Japan, France, and the US and Canada. The biggest pros are the kitchen and the communal spaces, but the rooms are also great.

    Often the internet was spotty in my room, but not a huge deal because I could just use laptop in the downstairs areas.

    Cool place. Great communal areas and kitchen. Film room, helpful staff, free parking. No complaints!

    No complaints, maybe another bathroom would be good

    The breakfast was fantastic. There was a wonderful little Frenchman that made omelettes for those who were up and awake before 10. They had hair dryers, and straighteners for guests to use. There was a towel folded on your bed upon arrival, so no having to deal with towel rentals. Great place especially for those coming over from the Interislander.

    The blinds, due to the wind, kept knocking against the window pane and made it difficult to sleep. The windows were shut, but there was a draft under the window. If there was curtains it wouldn't have made the noise, but they were wooden blinds.

    I was recognized as a return guest. The omelette was delicious. The glass on the superb artwork was sparkling clean. The herbs in the garden looked luscious. The staff kept busy. Street frontage was well kept and clean.

    The wind.

    I liked the way we were welcomed from the minute we walked in the door. I was travelling with my nephew and it was the first time he had stayed at a hostel before. The lounge was super comfortable, we loved the movie room. I liked how the hostel took opportunities to be eco friendly, eg, no plastic in the kitchen with the breakfast, the wooden ear buds in the bath room, the cloth towels in the bath room. We checked out in the morning as our flight wasn't until the evening, but were told to come back and relax at the hostel until we had to leave. Made us feel really welcome. Loved my stay!
