Liked: Location! It was just perfect. Walking distance to everything you need as well as some of the great tourist traps!The Kitchen was busy but it was well organised. Everyone actually cleans up properly after themselves and I had no food theifts which was great!

Disliked: It could have been cleaner. But it wasn't that bad. The building is old and quiet noisy as in creeky etc - could do with some fresh paint on the walls. It is on a busy Main Street. So there is lots of traffic noice as well as people noise from outside but, also from in the hostel. Nothing a good pair of ear plugs won't handle!

Liked: 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

Disliked: This hostel is very avg, slightly run down but still kept clean. The kitchen and common area was in the basement with poor ventilation so it was usually hot. Always busy and messy in the evenings.
