The host Mo makes you feel like family. When people leave, they are hugging and grateful to stay here. Kitchen has some interesting appliances like the oven, but has a freezer which is nice in a hostel. The location is quiet and has many areas to hangout or use the wifi. Back area and laundry line is nice.

Comfy bed”

It’s basic The beds where comfortable & clean , toilet and bathroom where clean , but the kitchen wasn’t clean and I didn’t use it but overall a good place to stay , walk into town as it’s downhill , most times caught a taxi back after a long day of sightseeing , it cost about $8 so between 3 of us it was good. the owner Mo was a great guy and the other guests that we meet where friendly . The Shamrock Hotel close by (walking distance) does great cheap meals .

Very friendly place. However, probably we stayed on the ground floor(twin bedroom), very close to the door to the reception lobby, and the shower room. The sound insulation is not very good at this house. We got a lot of noise from reception(people talk, television, slap door, water sound from shower room)......We could not sleep before 12 and be awakened in the very early morning around 6. Beware if you can not stay in a noise place. (probably the other floor is ok? Just check when you check-in)

Plenty of toilets, a quite big kitchen and everything is very clean. One thing that could be better are the power plugs. There aren't too many to charge your devices.
