Pub downstairs, hostel upstairs – you know what you are getting into as soon as you step into the bar which has the obligatory homage to Bob Marley, billiard table and hangout spots.

Photo of Buffalo Pub Hostel
Buffalo Pub Hostel is a social place and the forgettable and small dorm rooms are almost an afterthought. The bunks crammed in are solid wood and you do get WiFi and air-con. There are also private rooms, also these are very small. But it’s really all about relaxing downstairs with an international crowd and getting to know your fellow traveller over a game of darts or at a high table set up on the footpath where you can gaze at the river across the road. Room rate does not include breakfast.
