Pricey, but everything was brand new and good quality, beds, showers and the kitchen in particular totally rocked. Staff also incredibly helpful and fun, putting tunes on and chatting with us into the wee hours. Only issue was no (working) lockers the room. Overall, In terms of getting what you pay for, this place absolutely delivers.

Hi John, Thanks so much for leaving our first written review on HostelWorld. I'm happy to report that we fixed the issue we had with the locker in your room, but I am sorry that wasn't the case during your stay. However, it's great to see that you still had a wonderful visit. I'm happy you got to spend time with our staff and enjoy the music, kitchen and memory foam beds. We hope you'll visit us again. Warm regards, Casey General Manager
