On paper good amenities (swimming pool, pool table, tv, blah blah blah) however it is well overpriced, has only 2 common bathrooms 1 shower, some unfriendly staff, overpriced drinks (not allowed to bring your own). Rooms are tiny and uncomfortable springy beds.
Not flexible with changing bookings and can't check in till 2pm.
Also it belongs to HI but it is not advertised on the website and you can't get your 10% discount unless you book through the HI site.
Location, only if you want to be close to the train/bus terminal, otherwise 25min walk into the city.
Had a bbq night and the whole place was full of sticky smoke.
