Very social and comfortable
Interesting vibe, lots going on at the lodge and can see why it’s so popular. We had a private room with tea & coffee and it was pretty nice. The bathrooms were not in a great state which you’d expect from a busy hostel but 2 blocked toilets for a good portion of the day. One fridge was out so everyone’s food was crammed into the two remaining ones, not helped by leaking liquids on the top shelf running into everyone else’s food, but that’s more a guest comment than the hostel. The staff were great and it was awesome to have a shuttle to the bus stop!

It was loud at night from the neighboring brewery. The double rooms on the ground floor had little natural light and were very narrow. The opening of the room door was very cumbersome to open with an app and mobile phone. The app often did not work because the WIFI reception was very bad. The manual code entry was bad. But the Pool was awesome.
