This really is a good hostel but I don't want to rate it too high simply because it's the most expensive hostel I've ever stayed in and it's no better than any of the ones that are as much as $10 cheaper. Adds insult to injury to have to pay for every single other thing be it lockers after you've checked out, internet or bike rental. $20 for the day, really... The whole spa concept is a good idea but I'd rather not have that and include some other service in the inflated price.

Other than the lack of powerpoints in our dorm (the only ones available were only located in one corner of the room) and no free wifi, I had a pleasant stay at YHA.

Nice comfortable hostel

Great hostel, brand new and very clean. However I was disappointed that all services are 'extra costs' and rather expensive: internet is $5 per day so is the breakfast.

Nice place - no long termers (they limit the stay to 14 days). Would recommend hiring a bike (half price on Wednesdays!) to tour the city.

Hostel is generally good! But 36$ for a 10 bed dorm is too expensive. No free wifi and luggage storage. :( Bike hire 20$ per day. Omg!

Was a very safe and nice hostel. But with no free wifi and no free luggage storage, this hostel is definitely not up to the same standards as hostels throughout Europe and North America.

It was good. But Only 5 sockets were available in 8-female dorm And all the socket are in the corner of the room. It was very uncomfortable and silly.

The rooms were a bit to big (I staid in a 12 doorn), and there a lots of weird guests in the hostel. But the hostel it self has good facilities, it's secure and the staff is friendly.
