    Superb

    26 Jul 2018
    THE BEST PLACE EVER. Great facilities and super central to everything! Lots of fun events every week, very clean kitchen & free laundry! Staff are what makes this place shine! Everyone is so welcoming and are always there to help you with any issues you may have. I’d definitely recommend this hostel if you are looking to work in the city but at the same time, enjoy a little party on the weekends! THANK YOU DOWNING

    Great location and value for the money. The building was a bit old and not the cleanest.

    Very Good

    Really nice and friendly staff, mostly other backpackers, which made for a cool environment, but it's as if as soon as you go upstairs that the whole hostel is cold. It's just a weird place to be honest, facilities are super old and the rooms are tiny with no lockers. But I didn't mind not having one, I was with some good people in my room.

    Decent place. Good cheap location downtown, near main transit station. Not much in terms of facilities, small but good kitchen. Bathrooms aren't the best, and there's no lockers but there's shelves for your stuff. Cheap option though.
