“Clean, modern, great facilities, value for money...but not close to Central Station!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

I loved it here, there is free laundry, breakfast, nice rooms with designed privacy, your own locker and your own plug and light by your bed. They have really thought of everything and the whole place is comfortable and friendly as it is not one of the "big backpackers" so you get to know people that are staying there. The staff are brilliant, really friendly and welcoming and everyone I met staying there was really nice too. The only thing that I would say is that - unlike what the it says on Hostel World - it is not very close to the central station, probably about a 30 minute (or a bit more) walk which is pretty knackered with all the bags - but just jump on a 363 or 372 bus and it is nice and quick! But to be honest it really is worth the distance as it is peaceful and in a nice, safe area.
