    If you're looking for a hostel with convenient access to the Central Train Station, this is the hostel for you! Only about a 15 minute walk! I had a private room and was SHOCKED at how quiet it was. At one point, I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night and it was a party downstairs, but I had no idea it was going on because my room stayed so quiet! Very easy access to either walk (about 30 minutes) or take an easy access bus ride to the Harbour and major sites! Highly recommend!

    Amazing bathrooms! Showers were immediately warm, nice hooks and toiletry rack. Showers have fully closed doors instead of curtains. They have an iron to use as well which is a plus. Beds are comfy, and I liked that each bed had a lamp and plug. Kitchen area is a little crowded, but breakfast was decent. They had hazelnut spread which was a nice touch. I stayed in a 4 person room and there were no shelves or hanging racks which would have been nice, but not too big of a deal.

    Great hostel in a safe part of town, a short 10 min walk from Central station for a great price! Bedrooms are perfectly adequate with sturdy bunks, large lockers & aircon. Showers are hot, powerful and large, with plenty of space and hanging hooks. There never seemed to be a queue for toilets or showers, which were always clean. Complimentary breakfast was plentiful & a welcome bonus, as was free tea & coffee. This hostel has a great community vibe with welcoming staff, and nothing lacking.

    Really quite a good experience. Great location next to a beautiful park close to the City Center. Not overly expensive, yet the facilties are great especially the showers. The rooms could use a bit more ventilation but still spacious and room for your belongings.

    Very Good

    14 Nov 2019
    Five people in my room lived there permanently. All seemed to have a sense of ownership of the place: not too keen to interact with new people and their stuff was spread all over the room. Also, barged in late at night, turned lights on, basically shouted and laughed while catching up with the other permanent residents. Breakfast was good for what you can expect from a hostel. Friendly staff. Place has great potential but is ruined by permanent residents. Stay elsewhere if traveling by yourself.

    Good location. Price is pretty steep for what it is. Staff are nice and the bathrooms are clean. Big issue for me was the most disgusting air freshener being used in the rooms. It was so pungent I'd almost choke on it. Being in my room with it (even after I closed the freshener up) was like being smothered by a rotting marshmallow.
