Please be aware that this place has a security issue, over the bank holiday weekend everyone was robbed my entire back pack was taken and so was a girl from Belgium's, In the same room the day before a French girls Laptop was taken and a Kiwi guys kindel. The manager did change the lock but only after the second robbery. Crash palace do have lockers but they are not big enough for you to store your rucksack and if you are staying in a room you want to be able to leave your cloths there without them being taken, The person had a key to the room as all the windows and doors were locked. This could be a hostel guest, employee or professional thief either way it's rooms are being targeted at the moment. I checked with the police and there have been Incident reports filed as recently as the beginning of October, My advice If you want to keep your backpack don't stay here.or keep it empty and lock away all your possessions.
