I am female and in my mid 30's. I have spent a lot of time in backplackers and from the sound of the website, and other urls I looked at it seemed like a great choice. Hmmm.. Maybe in comparison to other US hotsels. How it won an award is beyond me.
It was a great location. I will give it that. Central and handy for everything we wanted to see and do. But they just didn't seem to bother cleaning the place. I spent 5 nights there and in that whole time, their idea of cleaning the room (an 8 bed dorm share) was to empty the bin in the bathroom and change the bathmat (which was normally an old bath towel). Would it have hurt to have swept the room? I know being beachside it gets a lot of sand, but really, after 5 days you would think that one little sweep would be a nice touch!
Maybe if the staff spent sometime inside the room instead of standing outside eating, drinking or avoiding the boss, it may have been a little better.
Desk Staff were semi helpful, but not overly so. It felt safe because you had to walk through reception to get in, but that is where it stopped. Our room was left open most of the time and there was no where to store anything.
Conclusion: Won't be back.
