Hayley Moriarty thinks…

"The location is purely one of the reasons we booked a couple more nights on, as the transit centre was a 5 minute walk away."

Liked: Movie room, large outdoor seating area

Disliked: Plastic pillows were so uncomfortable, we tried to extend our stay but were told we had to book it online again, which was cheaper anyway by $10. Wireless Internet kept disconnecting and is not free like the hostel next door! You have to hire cutlery from reception, the hostel was not value for money!
