Best hotel for making friends and partying!”

This hostel was great, it had quiet rooms but great communal areas where you meet loads of people. They also had a social exec who organised great days and nights out, they had group bbq’s with FREE food as well as walks and felt really inviting. Really really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back.

Amazing Staff ”

Summer House Staff is lovely!! Big shout out to Georgia and Jana. Very warm welcome in Summerhouse. +Amazing social hostel, good location, free brekkie, clean rooms, activities. - The showers could be better - at some point boiling hot or freezing cold but rarely something in between. There is one or 2 showers where you can actually regulate the temperature :-) But apart from that the best place to be. Thank you Carola from Austria

Best place ”

Summer house was extraordinarily clean and easy to be in. The room was comfortable, sheets clean, had my own sink in my room with me. Only one toilet on the floor but there was never a line and it was always in great condition. Showers clean, common areas clean. Guests tidied after themselves. Helpful reception. Go here.
