Please be aware that we do have a resident cat at the hostel who is called "Ginger George" (a picture of George can be found in our photos). We seem to find most guests appreciate the cat, especially those who are away from home and looking for creature comfort. The cat is very independent and very happy to stay away from guests who may be allergic or not keen on him. George is not allowed in the guest bedrooms or corridors. We are also dog friendly in the hostel and if you do wish to bring your four legged friend please just let us know so we can be sure to provide you a pet friendly room.
