Liked: Besides the location, there is nothing good to say for this hostel.

Disliked: Where to start? This is a loud, noisy, party hostel infested with the stereotypical partying backpackers who have absolutely no consideration for other travellers. On a Friday night you'll be lucky to get one hour's sleep if that. What's worse, the staff don't care or make any effort to keep the noise down. The beds squeaked with the merest turn and I scratched all night. Will never stay there again.

Liked: Good location, travel staff were very helpful and gave good deals, decent bar next door which also serves food.

Disliked: had to pay for wifi, most people in the hostel live here so arent as friendly as other hostels may be. $10 for food which is quite pricey, not many plugs in the rooms. for a single first time traveller i would reccomend staying at a smalller hostel to meet more people who are also travelling.

Liked: It was close to cool places, lots of specials.

Disliked: This place was very cold and impersonal, I got given a dorm that would have been perfect for a vampire as it's windows faced an internal wall and no natural sunlight ever sneaked in, also the were no working power outlets in the room and the bathrooms were always full of other peoples hair and the aftermath of attempts by other guest to use the toilet like a big boy/girl. It felt like a prison that had been turned into a party hostel. Stay at the YHA instead.
