Liked: it was within walking distance to everything, your right over the road from central station, there are taxi's waiting outside all the time and queen street has food and there are little 24 hr convience stores everywhere which is handy in the middle of the night =)

Disliked: the bed in room 223 OMG you need a new one no joke there are springs coming through it everywhere, which didnt make for a very nice sleep. in cooler weather an extra blanket wouldn't go astray either. oh and i think you may have bed bugs =) coz i wore boots the whole time i was down here except when i slept and i have bites all over my legs

Liked: Cool place to stay, can't be more central. Ok, Interior is old and worn and the ventilation units on the roof of the building make a lot of noise, but the atmos is great, "HEAD ON DOWN TO THE ZIBAR FOR SOME BREAKY" lol!! And an excellent base to start your day of siteseeing or your night in the city from!

Disliked: Old worn interior. Rooms near the elevator can be noisy at night.

Liked: Location

Disliked: Small rooms, loud guests (private rooms were not fully sealed for sound) Questionable bathrooms (old, unclean). Internet was expensive (compare a Singapore hostel at half the price with free internet). You are trading a lot just for location.

Liked: Close to train. Job club is great. Some of the staff are nice.

Disliked: It's not a place to sleep. The duff duff from downstairs went on til 3AM on a wednesday night. Don't go here if you want to sleep. It's a drunken obnoxious and loud in your face place if you like that.

Liked: Very good location. Very central.

Disliked: The noise. It was pretty much that every level was one huge dorm. Above the door was an open window in every room, that you could hear EVERYTHING- ALL NIGHT LONG! It was very diffucult to sleep more than an hour in a row.

29 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was perfect for us as we were literally stopping over between flights and it was opposite the station, also v close to the city which was nice. The bar seemed quite lively at night but the hostel was still quiet if you wanted to sleep. It was clean and pleasant enough but our room was literally a box with a bed in, not much character and the window was broken! So OK overall but not amazing!
