Been in the Hotel Barkly for 5 weeks now and I love it here. It is great fun, the staff are amazing and very friendly. The location is perfect, near the beach and high street and has good access for transport. Only 20 mins tram ride to the city.
The hostel itself is clean, the rooms are big enough with a good sized bathroom. The kitchen is not bad...but needs more fridge space and kettles for the amount of people staying.The bar downstairs is great fun and lively at weekends and there is a rooftop bar for weekend partying woohoo!
All in all I would recommend this hostel for long-term and short-term stayers. It has everything you need and more!
