Very disappointed. Booked an ensuite only to be put into a room with a sink! Was told my room is next to the shared bathroom so it was! Being next to the bathroom was incredibly noisy and woke me up throughout the night. ***There are no rooms with private toilet*** There is alot of noise outside as well as inside. If you want sleep and privacy look else where.

I had a great stay a Backpackers on Castle. It is very cost effective for the dorm style room - of course you must go in with the mindset that you will be sharing a room and a shower with 8 other people. The location can be slightly dangerous at night, but I felt safe even as a young woman traveling alone in another country (use good sense). During the day, it is also a very good central location. The staff as well as some of the more long term residents were very kind, welcoming, and helpful.

The hostel has perfect location, more in the city is hard to find. Close to waterfont as well. The kitchen wasn't the best, not so clean at all. We missed things like dish brush, dishcleaning etc. Nice staff but not so service minded, they lived in the hostel to so they wanted to use the kitchen and the bathroom of course but the guest should wait... Not so nice.
