Hostel was very noissy despite 11 pm curfee.
Although this hostel was in a good location in the city centre, the atmosphere was poor and if you are looking for a hostel in which to socialise I would not recommend King Street Backpackers which seemed to be more of a place to stay for people with jobs. I was also ignored for 10 minutes waiting to check in at the reception desk whilst the staff chatted (whilst I appreciate you cannot always be attended to straight away some nod of acknowledgement would have gone a long way).
Staff are so funny and nice. if there are more kinds of breakfast would be better~ haha
Is not cleaned enough and the building is old, then the first impression was not good. But staff is friendly and helpful. It will not be my first option next time, but I would came back again.
You stay here for the location - I hear the free breakfast is a bonus but I was too hungover to even consider keeping pancakes down but that would've been cool! Strong stench of cigarettes throughout downstairs common area due to people smoking directly outside the door. Fine for one night, but probably would've paid for somewhere nicer if I was planning to do anything more than just sleep after a night out before catching a flight home.
Having a great time at the hotel but the stairs to my room were hard at times... I am fitter now lol. Michelle
