    This Hostel was the best Hostel I've ever stayed at. The rooms are really nice, no bunk beds and a lot of space. And there was a fridge in each room , too! The bathrooms were always tidy and you have a lot of space and privacy. The kitchen isn't that big but cleaned really well and you could sit inside or eat on the balcony. Furthermore there is a TV room with Netflix and you can play Wii or Pool every day. The staff is really friendly and nice. You feel like you are a member of a big family.

    Very nice Hostel! The staff was friendly and it was like coming home every day. They had some great places to relax. It is located a little bit outside the centre which makes it more quite. Luckily they provide a Shuttle bus. The walk to the centre is too long for a short supermarket visit.

    Ich habe sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Angestellten des Hostels waren hilfsbereit, kompetent und jederzeit ansprechbar. Die Kunden sind eher jünger, was man positiv an der guten Stimmung gemerkt hat.Gleichzeitig wurde immer Rücksicht genommen. Die empfohlenen Touren waren durchweg toll.

    Familial hostel. A little off the Esplanade and the town center but in walking distance (20-30'). Rooms are very spacious and no bunk beds but normal single-beds! Unfortunately, we had to pay an extra full night for late check-out. I would recommend this hostel if you are looking for a quiet place.

    Castaway Backpackers was a really comfortable stay. There is an outdoor kitchen (as well as an indoor one) and they have a nice pool and lots of space in the common area. The people in the office were very kind and helpful with any bookings. The facilities were cleaned every morning. On every Wednesday they organized a trip to a pub in the city which was nice and a very good offer. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much even though the air circulation in out twin bedroom didn't work out so well.
