The hostel itself was very clean and staff were helpful/friendly. Unfortunately when I was there, some guys were on a group holiday and were making a lot of noise; not really an issue until you discover in the morning that they'd destroyed part of the men's bathroom in the process. Good hostel but sometimes attracts bad patrons.


Location is easy distance of both station and city. Staff are friendly and competent and there is a brilliant rooftop pool. Would certainly stay here again.


Great facilities! Love the rooftop pool, movie room, and the huge kitchen. I just wish the bathrooms were cleaned more often since they were quite dirty. There were also some people at reception who did not seem the least bit interested in being helpful. Would also be helpful to let guests control the television; having to go down two floors to reception every time you wanted to adjust anything was quite irritating. Other than that, this is a great hostel!


the staff were all really friendly. The bathrooms were really gross and everything else was pretty average. Not entirely impressed.


Wasn't a bad pace to stay, a bit of a walk to get into the city. The bathrooms needed to be cleaned better than what they currently are, and the bed was quite uncomfortable.


$32 per night is too expensive. Also the lockers aren't free to use, especially for those checking in early. Very inconvenient. Otherwise generally clean, not too social hostel but a friendly vibe around.


The Hostel has a high security standard with large lockers where it was possible to store my big backpack (75 l) and my small backack (33 l). Unfortunately my card for the room stopped working three times, although the card had no contact to my mobile phone. I don't know if this is a genereal problem...The hostel is in walking distance to a bus station and the central station where the Greyhound and Premier bus arrives and departures. To the inner city you have to walk around 20 min


It's on the edge of where most accommodations are but still walkable and only 10-15 minutes from the train station. I liked it because it wasn't a party spot....very mellow so good for couples, older traveler or anyone wanting a chill place. BIG Plus is lockers in the rooms with charging outlet INSIDE THE LOCKER! SO smart I wish all hostels did this! The pool is quite small but large enough for a dip to cool off. They did a nice BBQ for all the guests which encouraged social interaction


Hostel was clean with good facilities. Check in took a little longer than expected, as we had booked through Hostel World and there was some difficulties, but it was fine. Rooms were perfect for what we needed it and was great to have a light on each individual beds. It's the little things!!
