Property condition

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Sheep in the backyard was cool, nice continental breakfast, one downside was the bed was fairly squeaky and it was loud when we were trying to sleep

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Loved the communial area and the outdoor space. Looks very pretty and welcoming from the front. Was welcomed into the house as if it was my own. The only thing I had difficulty with was the bathroom, particularly the shower.

Stayed 1 night in Apr. 2019


  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Was very disappointing in fact, the relation price performance absolutely not balanced. Today we got a motel with clean and big room, bath (which was out of room in 1?. apostel) for a LOWER price,!!! We absolutely cannot recommend this hostel.

Fine stay, nice area

Overall really fine stay in this old hostel - close to the 12 th apostle. Thoug... a little expensive for a small room for 2 people with no bathroom in a old hostel. We paid around 130$ for 1 night, maybe we was just unlucky with the hotels.com prices? But besides that - Good service, fresh ladies in charge. Breakfast very basic. Nice area but not many options for buying good food. The pub next door is bad. Bring some food your selvf.
