Liked: Nice and clean with friendly staff. I found it to be really safe - nobody in my room even had to ever lock up their stuff! The people that stay there are really cool and like minded - you don't get creepy people like some other hostels. The rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean and cleaned very often. The kitchen was great with everything you needed and lots of safe storage for your own food. The hostel bar had $5 meals every night which were good too. The location was great as it was so close to everything and the airport shuttle dropped me right outside the door! I would stay here again for sure. Good value for money.

Liked: The location - it's easy to get to and easy to get to everything else!

Disliked: We were stopping on the 3rd floor and the music from the bar was still very loud, especially at the weekend! Make sure you don't get put on the first floor or you will not sleep. After paying $100s for staying there - they still charged me to store my back after checkout :(

Liked: beds are comfy

Disliked: My key card would stop working daily, so everyday i had to go down to reception to get it sorted which was annoying as there was always a queue, The kitchen has extremely basic equipment - good luck finding a fork and it is filthy. They is no storage room if checking out you are only allowed to use it if you are checking in. The staff are rude and extremely unhelpful and there isn't any real atmosphere.
