I spent a night here over a weekend, and was pleasantly surprised. For $19 for a 6-bed female dorm, I wasn't expecting very much, so was impressed by what I got. I read some of the reviews and honestly some people expect too much when they book a hostel. The hostel is right opposite a park bordering the city centre so the location is convenient. The bed was comfortable, and the room was relatively quiet, given that it is situated on a busy road. The staff were attentive, helpful, and even remembered my name! There were lots of people there, all in a similar age range (mostly backpackers) which made for friendships and lots of fun. The other amenities were basic but clean, which was good. A lot of reviews moaned about the cleaning but it is fine - the main offenders are other guests. Would consider staying here again short-term.
