“Great Hostel”
Reviewed July 16, 2009

This was a great hostel and we stayed 4 days in a 6 bed mixed dorm. We were given room 12, which is soo close to the common room that you can hear everything!! Ok if y ou're joining in, but not great if you want an early night and ear plugs are required. The bathroon is fine and clean and the kitchen is exactly what you need in a hostel. Would def recommend this hostel. The staff are also very friendly.

Just a quickie to say not too impressed. Room was very small, with literally just a bed squashed in and considering this was all they had to make up - it was really messy and looked like someone had already slept in it. Bathrooms were not too clean either. Very noisy. I understand this was budget accomm, but for $80 I expected a decent bed and a clean bathroom. Staff were friendly.
