The hotel is fine and very cheap. The ladies at the reception were very nice. It's a good place to meet a lot of backpackers. However, don't expect the comfort of what you would find in NZ for instance.

I didn't like this hostel. The mattress was too thin ( and I usually don't complain about that) and I had no place at all to put my backpack. Even though it is very cheap, I wouldn't go back there.

Super good value for money. Fast wifi and top bunker beds have places to put special belonging, really useful. Not exactly in the center of town, but is walkable.

Thanks very much for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Although we are not in the centre of town we do have other benefits, it's quiet, great street parking, buses to everywhere pass on Princess Street, free taxi service if you are coming to stay for more than 2 nights (from the intercity bus terminal) Enjoy the rest of your trip - Carolyn

Pancakes in the morning and free snack/meal in the evening, so totally worth the price (if you arrive late and leave early, you'd probably miss both though).

The room was very spacious. Everything you need in a hostel. My only critique is that the were almost no plug in the room so recharging my tablette was complicated. Wifi is good, but not in all the rooms.

Smart Russell coute peu et nous en avons pour notre argent. Il y a plusieurs choses qui m'ont agacées, surtout le fait qu'il n'y ait absolument pas d'espace pour mettre nos bagages dans la chambre. Il y a des casiers qu'on doit payer et si on ne veut pas le faire, on doit mettre nos bagages dans l'allée où ils sont dans les jambes de tout le monde (l'allée n'est pas large). Sinon, les douches sont petites et il faut faire attention à ne pas manquer le déjeuner. Mais sinon, bien situé.

C'est une très bonne auberge confortable avec un bon déjeuner. Le gros hic, c'est qu'elle n'est pas dans le centre-ville. Le rapport qualité-prix demeure très bon. C'est un peu mélangeant pour la trouver, puisque la réception n'est pas à la même adresse que l'auberge, mais les gens des environs m'ont indiqué où aller sans que je ne leur demande.

The staff wasn't there and since you need to get a password to enter the hostel and to do that, you need a cellphone, I don't know what I would have had to do if there wasn't a nice couple to help me with that. However, I had a nice space for me and it was very clean. It is also hard to find, so you'd better have the exact address in mind.
