I have had a great time in this hostel over the last 5 weeks but I leave this central located place with some mixed feelings. People make the place, same for this hostel, were-ether your fellow travelers or the staff, both groups were amazing. The staff in this place makes a huge difference in feeling at home, Elise, Mitch, Gus, Glen and the night shift man doing a great job. Small thing make a difference in personal attention; how was your day, how went the job interview etc. and a smile all day. The establishment is a bit aged and can use an upgrade, but the manager told me that they working on an upgrade as we speak. Its might get noisy form time to time, but that the disadvantage from staying Downtown / Fortstreet. Benefit from that is that there is always sometime to do. The hostel bar (which serves a free snack meal) or the bars around Fortstreet.
A massive crew of cleaners come in around 10 in the morning to get everything clean and fresh (a bit early on a Sunday) and its cleaned during the day and the evening. Although is aged, it is clean.
I highly recommend this place for its price and the people, your get were you pay for. Don't complain too much in the cheapest place in town. I enjoyed my time there.
