The place used to be a hospital, which adds to the character. Hosts were friendly. Great that they had a video library. 15-minute walk to the town centre. Great views from the TV room.

We stayed in a double room, the room was very spacious and had a high ceiling, it was also very clean. The owners of the place are VERY friendly and the fact that they do your laundry and fold it for you for only $5 is just awesome, saves a lot of time!! We were also provided with free towels in our room, nice to keep one's towels clean =) The kitchen is quite big and has everything you might need and the dining room is just off a longtable, very easy to strike up a conversation with other house mates that way. The free pool table was also a nice bonus!

It felt like quite an earie place what with all the stories of ghosts that surround this hostel and the ghostly theme that the owner has adopted. I felt spooked on my first night because our room looked like a hospital ward, i got used to it and found it fun to stay somewhere unusual. The hill its on is a bit of a steep trek uphill which i never got used to, it had nice views tho! About 15 -20mins walk to the centre. People were friendly and the place was kept clean and tidy

Heinz was very helpful and friendly. The Chalet is close to a great Irish Pub, Dicey O'Reilly's. The best "Irish" Pizza I ever had. Be ready to climb up High St. to get back to The Chalet. It's worth it, for the most comfortable bed yet. At least in Room 2!
