4 bed dorms on the yard side are really really small, hard to fit four peoples luggage. Cleaning is done by backpackers who also live there, not very professional (putting clean linen on the floor and other peoples beds that might have dirty sheets). Lots of hassle with double bookings while I was there.


good locaton, small rooms ,nice staff ,good kitchen


Came to see the Phoenix football game and lots of accommodation booked out. Nice comfy place near the stadium and liked the open space between the stables.

Really great staff, very friendly and were more than welcoming with our brief stay and early morning!


Be careful with the slapping doors!!

Felt quite let down with this place given previous reviews. Not a 5min walk from isite like stated, more like 10 (makes a difference with a heavy case and getting early buses), reception closed when arrived at 1.30pm (fine, but a bit of warning would be nice), bed not made, carpet in my room really dirty, kitchen/lounge really tatty, lots of immature notes about putting away dishes (I think there were about 10 just above the sinks)...All in all I wouldn't stay again, only bonus was free wifi.
