    The building is a little ageing but the room was ok. There are no lockers though. Location a bit far from city centre but the view is cool. The common area, especially the kitchen, can be a little dirty. The lounge is very small. There is not much ambiance since most of the guests are long term, but the staff is very friendly and helpful.

    Great little hostel! The staff was friendly and there was plenty of parking along the street nearby. It was about a 10 minute walk from town centre so not too bad. The kitchen is a little small but at this time of year it’s not busy so it was fine! The room was spacious and beds were comfy. Definitely recommend!

    Room was lovely and so were the staff but there are quite a few strict rules that made the atmosphere feel a tad weird. Still great tho!

    Staff was very friendly. Largest issue was the bathrooms. Extensive mold, mainly in exhaust fans. Location is direct walk to CBD, but quite the hill.

    This hostel is clearly for a long-time stay. Total party place. Guests were mostly male and there were uncomfortable, almost scary situations with us being nearly only women staying there. Facilities were nice and public spaces plenty, although people have *** in them. Bathrooms could've been a lot cleaner: paper was often out and the showers kept clogging. Music room was a plus.
