Good location but a bit loud/rowdy at all hours which probs isn't the hostels fault in fairness.

Hi, Thanks for your review. The main cause for the late night disruption was from a particular guest who was asked to leave and is no longer with us. Safe travels for the rest of your journey.


All very good, though one particular staff member couldn't be bothered. Other than that, people were friendly, facilities and security were good, and it's the cheapest in the area.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. Yes, our free breakfast is everyday. It's available from 8:30am - 11:00. On the weekdays and 8:30am - 12:00 on the weekends. We hope to see you back here soon. Aaron


The room was stinky and too small.

Thanks for your review. The room you made a reservation for was a single private room, this room is a lower price because of its size. We would have happily upgraded you to a private double during your stay. All our Private rooms are thoroughly cleaned once the guest has checked out. So I don't know about the room being stinky as there was no one else staying in it. Thanks, Aaron
