10/10 Exceptional

Dougies was a great hostel! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They even let us check in earlier too. Amenities were clean, the private dorm was clean and the vibes in the common area were great. They even had a Dj on the decks on the Sunday which was awesome, especially whilst your drinking the cheapest beer in town. Would recommend to any travellers, even those who generally don’t like the idea of a hostel. Dougies will exceed your expectations.
