Okay. ”

Rooms are not sound proof. No separate bathrooms for ladies/gents. Provided water dispenser but no cold water. The walls between rooms are literally plywood. My room was ground floor. You can hear foot steps from upstairs if the guests walk like a giant. This is not the hostel’s fault but maybe need to remind guests to walk quietly if they stay upstairs. Some guests have no common sense and need to be reminded every time.

Review”

Really cool and comfortable hostel. There is a nice cafe below, which is ideal for meeting people. The larger dorm has quite a lot of people, so if you’re a light sleeper, j recommend bringing ear plugs or going for one of the other dorm options with fewer people. Free drinking water is a huge plus, since it means less plastic! Would recommend!

They always took the time to greet you and were eager to answer any questions I had and offer recommendations for places to go and eat. The guest house itself, although older, was clean and charming. The hall bathrooms were kept in good order, and there was never an issue with showers or toilets. Altogether, a perfect stay. Thank you Rope Walk!
