My GF flew all the way from Scotland to visit me whilst travelling, we booked the more expensive hostel at $110 per night (Ashton lodge). We got there, the place smelled like sickness then we got to our room which was a clean room with a BED, nothing else. No where to store clothes, no fridge nothing. So we were... More

The staff are amazingly lovely and hard working. Always cleaning. Unfortunately the smell of the room we had was something I can't describe. And the noise in the bar from 8pm through to 4am is horrendous and sleep is impossible. There should be a warning on there advertising to indicate this.

This Hotel had everything they advertised. While I felt it was a bit expensive at $175.00 per night for very basic accommodation the fact that it was in the very heart of the city is fair. A basic room , clean, en suite bathroom, no safe of course, and it was really like a backpacker's room PLUS. It is above... More

It was clean. The mattress was reasonable, and had bed-bug protectors on them (a good idea) that were also clean. The linen was also clean. It is, however, quite basic, and we had shared bathroom facilities with two other rooms which didn't cause an issue - we knew that up-front. There was some paint peeling on the walls and the...

I was going to stay here until i saw the room. It smelt so bad i left immediately. The smell was a mix of rats, piss & vomit. The rooms were terrible! No elevators. I went next door to the value inn which was cheaper, had nicer rooms, tea&coffee making facilities, own ensuite, elevator and secure parking. Ashton lodge had... More

I'm not sure why this place has had such bad reviews. It was cheap, clean and had everything you needed from a hostel. We asked for a quiet room after reading the other comments, and were given a room on the second floor over looking the pool. Considering it was still pretty close to the bar, we hardly heard anything... More

Not much going for this place really. Incredibly overpriced but most places are during the dry. It's central location means it is attached to a late night bar, so unless you're out on the town yourself, I wouldn't recommend it for a quiet nights sleep. Shared bathroom door wouldn't close on the mens so anyone could walk in whilst showering.
