    A really good hostel in a convenient location close to the city center. The rooms are quite clean and comfortable. There is a good breakfast and the terrace is perfect in the evening for relaxing and getting to know your roommates.

    If you're looking for a quieter hostel but still walking distance to cbd and south bank this is it. The only issue i had was that the pool table was pay to play.

    Very Good

    I checked in, came in to my room and found a water bottle under the bed. 2 days after i checked out and 2 days later i checked in again and this water bottle was still under my bad. For me it means no one actually cleaned the room. Also the fact that there are only 2 Men showers in the whole hostel is ridiculous.

    The lack of aircon makes the rooms suffocatingly hot. There are bed bugs, I have bed bug bites all over me. The staff aren't very friendly or direct about things. They didn't explain where laundry, bathrooms or kitchen were and they didnt explain the checkout procedure. Bathrooms are too small. Beds creak really loudly and wake other roommates. Some rules are unfair like: The kitchen closes at 9:30pm.

    Rude staff, terrible atmosphere for a solo traveler, everyone seemed so unfriendly and unwelcoming. Room was OK, lacking facilities. Maybe OK for one night sleep and that’s it.
