cheapest dorm bed in the town. location is good. bed is clean and reception is nice guy. hopefully management will improve the hygiene in shared kitchen and bathroom. by the way, room is just next to street and there are noise all times.

Do not book with this “hotel”. Made a booking and got an email 5 weeks later saying they can no longer accommodate me du to being over booked. 5 weeks later is unacceptable. If you need a place to stay and cant afford an email weeks later of on the day of arrival telling you they cant accommodate you then... More

These guys overbooked and it took 5 weeks for them to work it out-no accommodation!! They are obviously dis-organised and apologies don't cut the mustard when you have lost out on other accommodation. No offer of.assistance with finding alternatives. Steer well clear

Rather stay somewhere else. Believe me. We booked 2 beds on 8 beds room. Well, ok we are backpackers and we don t make problems about sleeping everywhere, BUT...the beds are really unconfortable, and our room was on the ground floor, right on the street, so that I could hear the people breathing outside. This place is not even clean.... More

Just went here to collect keys for an equally shocking rental of PPM and owner Craig Relph, deceiptful. Overpowering stench when I entered, extremely hot ++++ and no one appeared happy, no one spoke and reception equally deceitful and tried to demand more bond when I knew I'd done my sums right and even checked with the man behind me....

The mattress is so thin you can feel the iron support bellow when you go to sleep. It's terrible to sleep. Not a very clean place. The bedroom on the ground floor is very noisy. The fee is normally $18. For $22 you can stay in the Zebra that is way better.

Dirty crap hole with amazing people that will forever hold a special place in my heart. Met my partner here in 2013! Long term working hostel generally. Party on good travellers. Also - the roof top is a bonus. Kitchen is big. Lounge area is huge and comfy. Nice outdoor area and excellent location.

Went here because it was very cheap (15 $ for BBH-Members) Now I know why. Dorm rooms are for 12 people, no lockers, old matress so it is not comfy to sleep there. Furthermore, the kitchen is very unclean and bad equiped. My dorm room was in the first one, the next bathroom to shower was in the 3rd. Also... More

This was the worst place I stayed at in a very long time. The place is filthy, smelly and should really be pulled down. I am still scared I will break out in some skin disease from staying there. Why did I not look at Trip Advisor before booking? All the worst reviews are true. I paid $ 50 per... More

The hostel is in an old, non-renovated building and the rooms smell sour, like cheap old furniture. The rooms and bathrooms feel and look dirty although they seemed to be cleaned regularly. There was litter on the hall floor and no soap in the bathroom. Soaked shower curtains and disgusting or missing door knobs. Doors and windows are thin, so... More
