Liked: the hostel is very modern and friendly

Liked: My room (4 bed dorm) was at least clean.

Disliked: No expectation on behalf of other guests to respect certain hours as quiet hours. Not helped by a nightclub located in the basement. Bathrooms disgustingly dirty in the morning brought about by drunkenness I believe!!!

Liked: It has everything a hostel needs. Close to the CBD, good beds and all other facilities you might need. There is a nice bar downstairs which allows you to meet new people, but also for those wanting peace and quit and a lot of sightseeing it is a good place.

Disliked: It can be quite busy at times with busloads of new backpackers arriving.
