I was staying in the 10 bed dorms for a week. Location is okay, located at a quiet area in south bank. 15-20 minutes walk to the museum and art gallery.

As far as Backpacker experiences goes, this was most positive 4 star in Backpacker terms. Felt safe Facilities clean. Bonus bar fridge. Bunks were a typical metal tubular frame, mattress thin. Ok for the agile to climb to top bunk, challenging for others (such as myself at 40+), Ok for an overnight. Bit of noise going on after 10pm Thursday... More

A place made to be what it is called like: a resort. Each room has a balcony, spacious rooms, you even may smoke on the balcony but as it has a very expensive licensed bar, alcohol from outside is strictly forbidden. Bathroom was ensuite! First room I booked in smelled like poo and rotten meat, got another which was ok.... More

We booked as a group and we are very pleased with the hostel. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The location is good, near bus station, food shops, pharmasy, restaurants and other shops. A minus, ac will not be turned on when it's autumn and winter, so the air was very bad sometimes. Beyond that, we are very happy... More
