What travellers think

Travellers that stayed here think this hostel is best for

  • Unique atmosphere
  • Socialising
  • Eco-tourism
  • Relaxing


It was a great location, the road is full of really cool little shops, there are codes for the doors - very safe. The beds were really comfy and there were lots of extra blankets in the bedroom which was very appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good. I didn't know before that it was very environmentally friendly (motion detection lights in the bathroom and the toilet water came from collected rain water) was really refreshing to see.

If you're traveling alone and want to see the town from a different perspective, then you should really consider staying here. I can't complain about a single thing. The highlight would be the facility itself being so clean and assessible. Beyond such would be the friendliness of the staff and affordability.

Individual lamps in the mens' bunks would be helpful. Breakfast was great! Loved the pancakes and free biscuits!

Locaiton - Excellent. Clean, and secure. Service = poor: our accomodation was put through as three seperate transactions which resulted in excess card charges - we weren't told about anything such as bathrooms or breakfast on our check-in. Not enough bathrooms - always waiting to use one. Two showers available for women - one of which isn't private at all and the door doesn't shut properly. Dorm layout isn't good - cause for constant noise of opening doors

Hawthorne is great. I have fond memories and good experiences of the staff. Everyone there is accommodating and for reasons out of their control, fun people are drawn to it. The house is immaculate and I have thorough and deep conversations there with people such as the dude from Central Europe who told me about robotics tech, a Bay Area composer young woman, and the talented guitarist from the Midwest. I especially like the helpfulness of the staff in recommending the art tour and letting
