I had a very good stay. Friendly staff and cozy, clean facilities. Close to the city centre. A bit cold in the common areas though, but it was winter time. The kitchens were well equipped. Nice neighbourhood!

Argyle Backpackers is good located, safe and easy to get there, easy to find; stayed there for 2 nights with 2 friends. Clean, friendly staff. The prices are ok, not expensive. Warm room, enough space for luggages. :)
