A hostel with every thing! Sep 29, 2011
Summer might be different but off season staying in this hostel was enjoyable and a great value.
I haven't stayed in other hostels but according to what I have read and what I heard from others who were staying here, this is a place that has it all. It is close to the greyhound bus, the beach and the main street where you will find restaurants. I don't know how far it was from a grocery store. The lockers in the rooms were huge, so was the kitchen, dinning and outside area. The kitchen was well stocked, there were two computers, a TV and laundry room in the basement and a lounge on the main floor. I loved the enclosed back patio area with a BBQ.
If there were lots of guests, the women's bath and shower might be over crowded. The beds and comforters were comfy and on the back side it was really quiet and even the front didn't have much traffic in the evening. They have signs stating "Quiet Time" 11 to 7 so this is not a late night party hostel.
In the fall when I visited the guests were all middle age and older but in the summer the age is much younger. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful, so certainly give this place a try if you are in the area.
