City break

29 July 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Lockers in the dorms; very safe overall.

Disliked: The kitchen is like a hell hole. It's clean but it's full of smoke (no proper ventilation) and smells like bacon and grease all the time. Ugh. You don't want to go there, disgusting.

Liked: Pretty good location, individual light, shelf and socket by each bed. They'd obviously worked pretty hard to give character to such a big hostel, which is no mean feat, and they'd done a pretty good job.

Disliked: Quite hard to meet people because of the sheer size of the place. Bar was a bit chavvy... and there were only 2 lockers in my 8 bed dorm which was a bit odd. All in all a really good place though and at $18 a night who's complaining?

Liked: In the 8 dorm room i stayed in, there are ensuite, tv, and even fridge, with the average rate like all the other backpackers. Staff are friendly and the bar in house is just a great place to meet people and have a small drink or dinner. Free shuttle bus every hour that runs to the city. The kitchen isn't very clean, though, that's the only bad thing. Good benefits after all.

Disliked: The kitchen is a bit dirty, cuz not everybody staying is cleaning up after him/herself...

Liked: great rooms - power socket, shelf and reading light by every bunk, good location, great kitchen, generally nice place, great bar, apart from 1st floor rooms was actually quiet even when club was going downstairs.

Disliked: squeaky plastic matresses, tv room closes at 10.30 so if you dont want to drink then there's not a lot else to do of an evening - comfy sofas in reception but not an amazing common area.
