The Common Room Project

Homestay, Hostel

Bizarre in concept yet stranglely nice in the way it brings it all together, The Common Room Project is where a hotel meets a hostel, where the comfort blends well with young vibes and social interraction. There’s a community-feel here (this is a hostel, after all) – not a drinking bar for parties but more like a homey communal room where creative ideas are encouraged over dinners featuring local produce and an emphasis on slow and off the beaten track travel.
