Smart City Hostel has lights in the halls and ensuite that are motion activated. Brilliant way to save power - and prevent room mates from leaving light on all night. Everything was modern and clean. Upon entering the room (which was spacious) there was a tile floor area by the ensuite and seperate shower room. Over by the beds there was carpet. Individual lights at the head of each bunk, and lockers.
The Bar/cafe downstairs is a great place to get food and drink for a good value. It is also the spot to hang out and use the free wifi (very complicated sign-on), watch tv or play pool.
On top of all the above good things, the location in great. Just a block from all that is going on in town. Unlike some of the other posters, I did not hear any noise that I couldn't ignore.
