The 22-min special will be the pilot of Kyla, the sister, arriving at River's hostel. In the series, either web or broadcast, each week the story will focus on the latest crisis at the hostel – be it the kitchen, a mouse, the showers or the guests. The humour will come from the difference in opinion on how to handle almost every single situation between River and Kyla. The episodes will part farce, part situational humour, aiming to get the biggest laughs possible from the crazy world of hostel living. Online, there will be a participation element with users submitting their hostel horror/hilarious stories and the best will be featured on the show plus other interactive elements.

    Very funny for a short sketch. It was a unique story that made us laugh. Have not seen a similar plot before. Actors were very good especially Lydsy Ellis, who has great potential talent.

    Has potentials, good idea and storyline,but the back n forth camera shots kinda made the teaser a little boring.
