    We had a private unit with an en-suite bathroom, but used communal kitchen facilities. The room itself was clean and cosy, with extra blankets provided for us as it was winter. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot - very welcome in the cold winter!! The hostel is kooky and very relaxed environment, with a zero plastic bag policy and great recycling facilities. The kitchens were well equipped and clean. I imagine this hostel is really great place to stay when the weather is good, as there are hammocks and BBQs, and great outdoor spaces, but as it was winter (and cold and rainy!) we didn't get the option to take advantage of these great facilities.

    The room was BIG, which meant it was really hard to heat and although we were provided with a small gas heater, it just didn't touch the place, so it was constantly cold. Luckily we had extra blankets and warm clothing with us. The bathroom was like a wet-room and the shower in the corner just had a flimsy curtain, which did nothing to stop the water going everywhere. Not too big a deal, but it would have been great to have a squeegee or mop or something to dry the floor with so it wasn't slippy all day.

    The place has a very distinctive feel and would recommend if you are planning to spend some time to relax rather than just sleeping.

    The room smell wasn't pleasant.
