"Really good location, close to central station, and the free 555 shuttle stop was across the street. Bedding was clean and they offered activities in the evenings"

Rebecca Lumb

18 October 2008 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms are slightly cramped but they do have big lockers for all your stuff if you supply your own padlock. Kitchen is very large so there is plenty of space and the TV lounges are great. Almost one on each floor. The swipe card entry makes it very secure and the floor to ceiling windows give you a good view. It is also right in the centre of town and is right next to the train station (Central).

Gregory CHERPITEL

04 September 2008 Gregory would recommend this property

Liked: location not bad (a little bit more down George St, closer to Woolworths supermarket and Apple store would have been great). Kitchen and bathroom quite clean and functional... and with hot water ! (sorry, i've just spent 6 months in south america). For the room, cleanliness highly depends on who you are sharing the room with ! Staff very friendly and helpful. Finally, got discounted price with Hostelbookers (thks guys !).
