Staff couldn't do enough to help.
Very welcoming. Good value for money. Near East station and less then 10 mins walk to city centre. Definitely recommended!
Fantastic hostel and value for money
As I was staying in Canterbury for work purposes, I was a little anxious about the suitability of staying in a backpackers hostel.
However, I was pleasantly surprised - it was fantastic. Great service, facilities and the room was good too. I stayed in a single (non shared) room with access to a shared bathroom. It was basic, but did the job and came with sink and TV. Bathroom and toilets were immaculate, as was the bedroom on arrival.
