    Great Hostel

    I was checked in by Jess who was great. My room was good only feedback on this is the room needs curtains. They only had thin vinitian blinds that let the street lights in which made it difficult to sleep. Being able to have breakfast there was an added bonus.

    Loved the shared spaces, kids loved the cinema room and board fames. Breakfast was good awesome to have someone making omlets for us. We had a family room for 4 and there was plenty of space. Easy to find, just off the motorway and a short down hill walk to the water front.
