The hostel is housed in a beautiful historic Victorian building known as the Llewelyn building, and built in 1887. Your first view as you come in off the street is of the large double staircase that wraps itself majestically around the main reception area, crowned by a glass roof providing plenty of interior natural light. You'll be delighted with the decor and little touches that make this 'A home from home' and throughout the hostel you will be in awe of the fantastic art work.
A huge fully equipped kitchen is available for all our guests as is our beautiful, modern Cable TV room - all couches have been replaced with lots of big cushions to lounge on.
There is a small library and lots of common rooms for your enjoyment.
Alcohol is allowed in the hostel - we even provide you with an 'Alcohol Only' fridge in the main common room! and there and none of those ridiculous lock-outs, curfews or chores and - because of our policy, you will meet only international travelers here. We do not cater to people simply looking for a cheap bed. We're here for YOU, the backpacker.
