10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic hostel in every way. Location, professionalism and friendliness of staff (can’t do enough for you), facilities (plenty of lock up storage in room and communally), great common areas and kitchen, unbelievable views, lots of entertainment, cafe with very reasonably priced food, laundry, bike storage. Can’t fault the place. I originally thought I’d have to move hostels as I was there over the busiest period (Canada Day) but they managed to accommodate me in the end and so glad they did. Thank you!
