Another establishment of the Haka Lodge chain, visitors of other locations should be familiar with their "luxury hostel ethos" and their long list of amenities. As a relatively new place, everything here is clean and modern. They offer a huge shared kitchen which is large enough to cook a feast. The very spacious TV and common room area has comfortable seating with large windows over the water. They also offer other typical hostel features such as laundry, internet, and towels. Dorms and private rooms are available, with and without ensuite bathrooms. The entire place is decorated in a lively, colorful style, and the rooms are nicely appointed. Even the dorm bunks are modern and have lights and plugs.
Guest reviews usually follow the same trend: it is comfortable, quiet but social, clean and modern, and the staff is friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong here.
