Well done!


66%

Lovely staff + great location. Lots of restaurant options and a short stroll to the beach or tram. Beds simple metal frames with fairly firm, good quality mattresses. V comfortable. One major downside is the strange toilet / shower arrangement. Had to go all the way downstairs and then out the back door to the bathrooms outside. Seems like a major trek if you have to go for a pee in the middle of the night. Kitchen layout is also weird with ovens in sep room to fridges & plates/pots etc.

This beautiful historic bounding is so close to the Beach and a wide choice of eateries. Some rooms are rather noisy with traffic. There are shared toilet and shower facilities, fine in the not so busy season. The sheets are pressed cotton and there are good quality towels for hire. Saturday night was noisy with a DJ until late. I would recommend this hostel for those who love old buildings and the beach. Easy access to bus and tram.

Loved the no bunk beds! Free breakfast too which is always good. Overall the I was really pleased with my stay here. Everywhere very clean and a fully equipped kitchen. I was disappointed by the service I got from the staff on my arrival. I was tired and just wanted to check in, there were a big group of people at the bar obviously on a pub crawl which is cool, although when I finally got spoken to she saidto wait while she served the others, shouldn't I get seen to first to check into my room?

Cool location so close to the beach but without air con and 40 degrees it was kind of a nightmare...kitchen was not really nice...


94%

really nice place, made some friends, only thing i can say is dont stay here in extreme heat, no aircon and windows are bolted so you cant go on the balcony, 40 degress in a room with 5 other people was hell, by the last night i was the only one left all other had left for a hotel. would be a great place to stay beside that the area is very fun, and the backpacker is cool besidde that and its a licencend venue, so you cannot bring your own beers in.sorry for the spelling beers again tonight
