Heaven among hostels
I totally love this place! It's in the heart of Victoria, filled with friendly staff and with free breakfasts and dinners (I couldn't believe it either) what I paid for the stay felt like a steal. Will be happy to come back!

I like it.
One night. They provided both dinner and breakfast included with the already very affordable nightly rate. Friendly staff, comfy beds, and lots of other guests to have conversations with
