This is on of the most familiar and coziest hostels I´ve ever been to! Everybody knows everybody and your instantly a part of the "family". The staff is friendly and you feel that you are a guest and a person, not only a number out of thousands like in other hostels. Everything is clean and the showers are really good. The bus takes about 3 to 5 minutes to the heart of the city. Hmm, what else can I say? Thank you Balmain for the nice stay, I´ll be back :).
Simply the best. Two kitchens, more than adequate toilet/bathroom facilities kept clean regularly, friendly staff. Noise levels are fairly well countered by (for the most part) keeping it downstairs, and fire doors kept closed seem to effectively block sound. A little out of the way from the CBD/city scene, may not suit some backpackers, but the bus service is good, buses every 5 or 10 minutes.
Good and cheap hostel. Friendly and helpful staff, home-like atmosphere.
