Liked: I only stayed one night and had a private room so didn't use a lot of the facilities but everything I did experienced was great... staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location, easy walk to South Bank.

Disliked: It's a bit of a party Hostel so you have to not mind the noise of people returning to their rooms still in party mode!

Liked: I liked the outgoing atmosphere, and the location was great.

Disliked: It was difficult to distinguish between staff and volunteers. Some staff were massively unfriendly, unhelpful, and clearly just wanted to get their shift out of the way so they could go to the bar. One staff member was actually very drunk once when on his shift. Also, the wifi was ridiculously overpriced ($5 an hour), and you can't even use it upstairs.

Liked: Most of the staff were really friendly (apart from one moody receptionist) We got a free up grade from a 8 bed to a 6 bed when we checked in (but when we wanted to extend our stay - we then got charged the extra for the 6 bed we were in - which utter sucks!) Really good meal/drink deals, close to west end, but waaay to far from center n valley. There is a free bus that goes near the center every hour but only till 10... this should be 11 or 12 o clock Rooms had balcony, fridge n clean

Disliked: a hook on the back of the bathroom door to hand ur clothes or towel would be good, as the bathroom is sooo small n theres no where to hang ya clothes The air con remote should be left in the room, the staff come round about 9pm n put it on, n it was sooo cold in the night i couldnt sleep as u only get a little sheet to sleep with, oh and more plug sockets as there just werent enough for the about of people in the dorms

Liked: The location was great and the shuttle to and from the bus station was awesome. The staff were friendly and available to help.

Disliked: We were not in the mood for a "party" hostel which is what it seemed to be. Most of the other hostellers seemed to us quite young. Also, the rooms were not super clean and felt a bit cramped.
