Great location, walking distance to a lot of places, including bus/train station.

Free breakfast! The location is close to the CBD, but right next to the highway, so if you have a room facing the highway be prepared for road noise all night. Overall, great place with friendly staff and good value.

Always enjoy our stay at Urban. There is a reason we keep coming back and it is because of the consistency and great value.

The infrastructure of this hostel didn't fit to the number of rooms and guests. The kitchen was so small that it was mostly very difficult to cook. WLAN was very expensive and slow, sometimes it didn't work for hours.

The bed was dirty when I arrived. They gave me a private room for one night. It's a really good costumer service.

A very clean hostel in a great location and great value for money. The free breakfast was lovely too. Staff were hit and miss - some seemed friendly and helpful whilst others came across as rude. As there was no large communal area a lot of people seemed to stay with the people they already knew. We had one issue with security where it seemed a large group of gentleman were let in the hostel who were walking round with drinks in there hands just wandering around aimlessly. Overall I'd recommend.

The staff were by far the stand-out. Very friendly. Appreciated the automatic inclusion of a towel!

Urban Central was very nice. I didn't spend much time at the hostel, but it was a good place to stay. It was clean and the free breakfast and other foods are a good deal.
