I arrived and handed my debit card for payment. I told the guy it was a debit but he tried credit. Card was declined. I then had to ring my bank to find out he had pressed the wrong option. I then went to my room which smelled strongly of sewage. 4 lift trips later, I was moved to a different room.
The location is great, the staff good, the lift situation terrible and the continental breakfast extortionate. You can get a cooked brekkie at the cafe out the front for less than the hotel's price.
The bed was comfy but the air con noisey. The whole place needs a redesign. I've stayed in nicer hostels. 3 star it isn't. I won't be staying here again.
