Hostel is in a pretty good location, right near a bunch of restaurants, supermarket and the all important bottle-o.


Good hostel with a great atmosphere! The only bad thing I can think of, is that it can get really warm in the dorms. Apart from that it was really good (great location, all the facilities you need).


A bit grungy, but it definitely has a certain charm and "lived-in" appeal. The staff were helpful, though a bit absent occasionally. The atmosphere was great. Plenty of people to hang out with and get to know throughout my stay. My only complaint about that was that occasionally it did feel a bit like a hang-out for the staff and the staff's friends. While not a big deal it did come across as a bit unwelcoming to someone new in a big city.
