The communal kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, catering sized pots and pans and has an oven, 2 microwaves, toasters and kettles. It is large enough for groups to cook and group dining is available in the lounge or outside in the courtyard.

Areas can be sectioned off for group discussions and socialising if the hostel is occupied by other guests.
