Very friendly and helpful staff, they put on a very good range of events including free meals which is great, overall good atmosphere! Location in perfect, close to the bus station and easy walk to the city. The down side... We stayed in a twin room, pretty small and very smelly, cleaned to an okay standard. It's a very old and run down building. The toilets/showers closest to our room had basically no running water. However alternative showers on the other side worked fine.


The staff at the desk were exceptional, and I'd like to take two or three of them home with me. They were informed, patient, and quick to help. Elliott was especially professional, and volunteers Richie and Davide were awesome. The Maze is indeed a maze, but I totally enjoyed being in the ideal location for who I am and what I was doing there.


The staff was friendly. The place was a bit noisy inside but the location was perfect. It was close to Central station. However, there was no proper arrangement for water. I was told to take water from bsthroom which seemed very awkward way.
