Some of the long term guest have told me that this place was pretty awful before the new management came in. My room was newly painted and have new linen and an ensuite. It's a bit dated but the staff and most of the guests are really nice. The free meals are great. They have them at the same time every night so it's easy to meet new people. Free wifi too. I'll be back for summer for sure.

The building is a wreck. Most showers don't have cold water (only hot water tap connected,same problem with sinks) making them extremely dangerous because burning, taps coming out of the wall. Clear management problem as kitchen is disgusting,obviously clients know that no one says anything about leaving dirty dishes and not cleaning after yourself. Rooms are average rooms but matresses are so old that you can feel every detail of the metal net of the bed. Good location. Friendly staff.

Hi Greg, Thanks for the nice words about the staff! We love the backpacking industry and we're stoked when we come to work, i'm glad you noticed. We're renovating at the moment. All the issues that you mentioned should be sorted in the next couple of months. We've just bought one hundred new mattresses so the sleep woes are behind us. Our kitchen gets cleaned twice a day, sometime during peak periods it can get a bit messy. It's never too far away from a clean up though. Love, Coffee Crew
