samantha piearce

12 June 2008 samantha would recommend this property

Liked: the price, the staff, the activities, the free internet, free brekkie. Everything about this hostel was good. you get what you pay for. Its not brand spanking new, it could be better but for the money it hits all the right buttons. its not on the main strip of kings cross and it felt really safe. they're thinking of developing Chilli Boutique, i cant wait to see that. keep up the good work!!!
