Just book here
Amazing location, amazing staff. However your booking systems needs to allow for staff to add notes, my group of 5 who asked prior to booking to be in the same room couldn’t be made possible even though when we arrived there was an empty bed. Don’t ask. Annoying also that the USB ports next to my bunk were broken but none the less it’s a wicked hostel. Great flat white- the little cafe is a god send
