Me and my friend stayed for 3 nights earlier this week. The hostel itself is very big. It's a good location however is not clean. The carpets are filthy and the upkeep of the bathrooms is very poor. In such a big hostel we felt that staff should be more involved in the co-operation of what happens overnight. We had really bad nights sleep from being up until 4 am and we had to ask people to keep the noise down. Poor engagement of staff. Stayed at much better one after.


We was charged to store our baggage before check-in, we was charged extra for going over the allocated time even after explaining that we had gotten lost with it being our first day, we would have been charged 3% to check-in via debit card, there was no cups at all in the kitchen, our room stunk of sweat. The hostel is like a prison.

While the staff were helpful, the facilities were not great, only 3 plug sockets for a room of 8! The showers and toilets were not clean,have to pay $8 to store your bag (usually free in hostels!) and Internet very over priced.

Saturday night is not a good night to spend in an hostel so I prefer to stop here my comment.
