"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"

04 March 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff were all amazingly friendly and helpful! Great location right next to central station with secure in-room lockers. Great idea having charging outlets inside the lockers and giving each bed it's own light! Not a party hostel, so it's fairly quiet, but it's also not a great place to meet lots of people. All aorund very good value for money!
