We stayed one night, thank god not more. The bathrooms were very unclean, the toilet door couldn't be closed. The room was not cleaned and noisy. We saw a VERY BIG cockroach on the floor. Only positive thing, is the convenient location and the terrace overlooking Long Street.

The Balcony at Blue Mountain overlooked Long Street and was a great place to sit and chat with other Backpackers. It was nice to have a single room and not share in a Dorm. I have stayed at Long Street Backpackers before but preferred Blue Mountain probably because of the single room.

Bed linen was stained and holed and floor of room unswept and dirty. Staff very nice and helpful. Great location but dont stay here if you are a light sleeper as loud noise every night until the early hours. Overall good value for money in a prime location.
