    Great hostel, quiet, showers were clean, staff was interactive and fun. No real activities planned, but I was there midweek so kind of expected. Lowkey and within a small walk to all of the bars. Safe area

    One of the best hostel experiences that I’ve had. A few areas for improvement (e.g. fixing the ability for people to lock their belongings in the underbed storage cages) but overall a great place to stay. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly, the kitchen and lounge were a great place to hang out for a quiet movie or a few drinks. Never had to wait for a shower and everything was generally tidy. Was fortunate to have a 10/10 bunch of room mates too! Was genuinely sad to leave.

    Vagabonds was a great location walking distance from many great eating options, the bus station, and City Hall. The rooms were nice. Our room did not have an en suite bathroom so we sometimes had to wait for the bathroom, but never long. The staff was helpful and it was easy to use the key fab to get into the building, but others could easily be let in as there are no wristbands or any kind of security check. The breakfast was a bit limited with just toast, cereal, tea and instant coffee.

    stayed in fall so there wasn’t an overly social vibe and not too many people. staff were lovely and hosted low key events each night. beds and pillows weren’t very comfortable. was close to plenty of shops but a decent walk to the centre of town. overall nice place to stay for the price

    Rustic old Victorian building will greet you with s warm welcome from friendly staff. The beds are not numbered instead you simply chose 1 bed and leave something of your own on the bed to mark your territory. The bedding is a mere sheet, the flattest pillow and a small blanket. I was freezing in the night. Breakfast is generous and basic for your new day. Not much of a social atmosphere as hoped but the hot showers made up for the lack of community spirit

    Very Good

    Clean bedrooms and helpful staff but very lame on environmental management. They have recycling facilities ( in the back courtyard) but do absolutely nothing to advertise or promote these to visitors so the one kitchen bin is full of materials that many other hostels would be separating for recycling. I haven't seen bottles and cans in general waste bins at hostels for years ..come on Ricardo :) Underwhelmed by the t.v. dominating the living room & movie choices while there - many F-Bombs (:
