I had initially been booked into the HI, but had to find alternative after the flood. I called 1 week prior to staying and spoke to Jeff who was more than helpful and got me into an 8 bed mixed dorm. Yes, it's a bit crowded with bodies and luggage, but that adds to the experience. Great perks too, free breakfast and laundry service - perfect. It didn't matter if you weren't one of the 'party hard' guests, I was still made very welcome. There were no lockers, but security was never an issue. Great bunch of people and great location.
