The location is amazing, 1 minute walk to the tram and train station and a 2 -3 minute walk to Chapel st. Not much of a socializing hostel but I would definitely stay again.


I really enjoyed my stay with you. The only complaint would be the noise in the bedroom corridors from the visiting school groups. It was hard to sleep on those nights, and I had to keep getting up and asking them to be quiet. Also, I had to eat food in the computer space in the dining room while they were being briefed, which was uncomfortable.

great great place to stay!! beautiful deco and lovely staff!!


Very comfortable stay in great location for the flying visitor as I was, thanks very much. Good atmosphere, clean rooms, only reluctance to giving full rating is value for money of double room. Think I was overcharged based on my deposit and owing to booking changes...however that's also my fault for not double checking.


Good stay for a private room. Small, but clean and secure.


Great location just two minutes walking from the train station, very clean facilities, excellent breakfast, lovely staff. More a quiet place than a hostel atmosphere.


The room was small, smaller than expected anyway although in fairness the hotel doesn't make any claims otherwise. The location is superb...I missed the breakfast so I can't comment on that. The TV on the wall should be placed on a bracket (with arm) so it can be turned because it can not be watched properly in the location that is (it's one of those tv's which needs to be watched straight on or it becomes very dark....not sure how to explain this properly!)
