    It was really nice staying with Central Backpackers! The staff was super friendly and very helpful with everything you could possibly ask for. The hostel was clean and homely - both with a big and cosy lounge room with tv and a big kitchen with everything (except an oven...). The location is perfect; right in the middle of everything. It was also really nice with the no-alcohol policy because you were able to get a good nights sleep without noise :)
