OK. Not the most modern place in the city, a bit dated in places, but OK. Good quality kitchen area and dining room. Wifi a bit hit and miss. Decent area. 10 mins walk from bus station. 5 mins walk from shopping centre (inc food shops). Value for money good

Awful staff very rude and unhelpful. Rooms are littered with bowls and plates and absolutely stink. Showers hardly work and the WiFi is shocking. Incredibly overpriced for what really is a very poor hostel.

Nice and big YHA, great location, friendly staff, clean and good facilities. Only minus that you needed your key to go to the bathroom and showers.

I stayed here for one night. It's location is good in the city and the hostel itself was nice but, especially considering it was a Friday night, there was no atmosphere at all and few people to socialise with.

Location is good as its very close to bus stops, shops, cafe, offices of interest and eateries. Walking distance. Not so much to the Parliament but public transport is very close by. Hostel is clean, lockers in room, spacious room, kitchen is packed with utensils and storage, entertainment area and veranda is comfy and friendly staff (Dan). Only qualm is the music and crowd from bar nearby can be heard (from top level room) hence found sleeping difficult. But there's always earplugs

Nice hostel, very big and not the best atmosphere. The kitchen is too small and things get stolen. Wifi only works in common areas..

Kitchen is a bit too busy and often dirty on dinner time. Rooms and beds are comfortable. Wifi working well. Overall nice people and atmosphere. Very nice BYO in the kitchen and common lounge area. The hostel is also very central, book in advance if you want to secure your parking spot!

The hostel is in a great location in the city, near to all the shops and a walking distance to the major attractions. It is also clean which is great. Issues I had was with the breakfast which was not great, the reception staff were not always the most helpful or knowledgeable as well. Otherwise, good experience.
