Liked: Private kitchen and bathroom per dorm

Disliked: The fridges weren't cleaned out, so old mouldy food was still hanging around. They also falsely advertised a nandos discount card which doesn't exist.

12 March 2014 Harriet would recommend this property

Liked: We got a free upgrade, not sure why, but appreciated the gesture! They have food deals on most nights ($5 dominos etc) and offer lots of opportunities for a cheap night out if that is what you are after. Individual apartment style accommodation, so you don't share a kitchen/bathroom with lots of other people. If you want a hostel that is serious about the nightlife, this is the place for you. Also very close to the coach terminal if you are travelling by greyhound.

Disliked: All the pans were rusty, 3 out of the 4 hot plates on our oven didn't get hot enough to cook anything, and the grill fell off. There are a lot of staff, who all live in the hostel and begin drinking at 2pmish everyday (I guess when their shift ends) they are pretty cliquey and can be a bit disrespectful of the communal tv/lounge area. We were sat watching a movie at around 5pm and they all came in, started playing music really loudly and playing beer pong without even asking if we minded the music being on. We eventually just walked out. We weren't the only people attempting to watch the movie either.
