Really nice that you can arrive even at night, and the proximity to the train station is convenient. Air conditioning would be good though, as you have to put up with a lot of noise from cars and trains when you need to keep the window open because of the heat.

I dońt understand why we need to pay the wifi and it is not accessible in your room.

Room was clean and large. Great location right behind train station. However, the room stank so bad (like old sweaty socks) we had to open the windows when we arrived. We came back at 11 pm, and found our room-mates sleeping with all the windows closed, so we spent an awful night in an airless, stinking room with hot sweaty mattresses. Then, 3 times during the night someone random came in, turned on lights, and left again. They were looking for a bed -- why?!!? Otherwise, our stay was good.

Only complaints are that the bathrooms in our room smelled very musty/moldy, and there was no free internet. Otherwise, a wonderful hostel!

Pleasent stay and cheap accommodation. Easy walk to everything, but didn't see much of the staff.

The part for internet accessibility, shouldn't be something to pay for going by the fact that we are your clients. some of us being clients from other countries needs internet 100% for communication and our businesses back home, for this solo reason central Back packers kind of sounds like from my general instincts will be my choice by default even though i never liked their premises and rooms when i visited my friends there in comparison to YHA. and the it should be accessible from the rooms.
