    Aaron was great, so friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed talking to the guys in the dorm I was in. The place was close to the shops, cafes/restaurants and public transport.

    Great location beside Chapel street and staff friendly and helpful. Small hostel with mostly longtermers but they’re all friendly. Room smelled a little but you get over it. Reminded me of a uni house rather than a hostel, but that’s not a bad thing. Showers were decent too.

    + Great Location just off Chapel St. + Management listened and semi took action to our feedback. - Strange and short reception hours. - Rooms have long term stayers/workes in them and are absolutely filthy. - Common room is filthy. People sleep in there. - Bathrooms were ok. - Breakfast just toast and cereal. - Have to pay a deposit to use cutlery.
