    My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at Woodquay. We found the location to be very convenient and close to the city center. The staff was very polite and helpful when looking for advice. Really appreciated that the reception desk kept the key to relieve us of the burden of losing the key while exploring.

    Great hostel in a good location. Less than a half kilometer from the center and train/bus station. You have to return the key to reception every time you leave and that is a bit annoying but truly my only complaint. The staff is lovely and helpful. I would recommend to friends visiting.

    Good location. Weren't told anything when we checked in e.g. shown round hostel, facilities, local briefing as usual in hostels. No information given except payment taken. The lock to our room was not working but this was quickly rectified. Plumbing was bad and noisy, water temperatures very temperamental.

    This hostel is very cramped and not as nice as the photos make it out to seem. When I arrived at the hostel the two girls behind the check in desk were polar opposites. The one with glasses was great and was very helpful while the one with the black nose ring was very rude and unhelpful. wouldn't recommend this hostel unless you are on a very tight budget. The bathrooms are also subpar like the staff. They have a button you have to push to get water every 20 secs or so and it was very annoying.

    Bunk beds were uncomfortable and too too small. Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. The vibe was very cliquey with a bunch of ex-Aussies / kiwis living there as they worked locally, but they did not want to meet new transient visitors. Snobbish and mean-spirited.
