It is in a prime location. But as an Australian coming to this hostel I was initially charged $10 more for not being an international traveller. Not worth the money as some homeless (people on welfare payments) were boarding in this hostel and we were put into their room. It wasn't a pleasant atmosphere at times. Should really be for travellers. But the balcony and bar was a very nice feature. Good for living it rough and cheap, perfect if you have no problems with this.


Great location, average hostel. The only thing I didn't like is the kitchen was too small for the number of guests. The complimentary breakfast was good though.


The bed was to short, and we have to ask for clean sheets after check in.

Decent place, friendly staff. There are a lot of long term staying guests and older guests, which unfortunately kills the atmosphere a little. But very good value for money.
