Liked: Location

Disliked: very disappointed in my stay poster at reception says quiet time after midnigt until 7 am. This was not enforced. Not only was there banging, sounds like crashing chairs etc at 1am there was loud talk until 4 am at least. Night supervisor was there too as i obseved when inwemt ti the washroom through the kitchen (I was in a female dorm). hostel allows alcohol which is fine but not when your dorm is within 4 meters of the common room, where loud inebriated conversation is tzking place and all you are at the hostel for is a sleep! I Had stayed zt hostel before but was in an upstairs dorm which is removed frlm common room and when i noticed i was in dorm right by common room i asked to move and was told that was impossible as that is whT i booked online. i left this morning before the free breakfast and without any sleep and

Liked: Helpful receptionist and very welcoming. Free use of towels included. Breakfast selection choice is fine.

Disliked: It was a pity the dorm happens to be located next to the common room/kitchen as it can be difficult to sleep with the background noise.

Liked: My flight was delayed considerably and Lucas stayed up late until 2am on a Saturday night to ensure that I got in okay and showed me around. He also warned fellow guests so everyone was warm and accommodating towards me - so no one was angry when I got in late. The facilities are fantastic - I'm only sad that my time was cut short there.

Liked: Great atmosphere, lots of fun and lots of extra goodies like laundry and breakfast. It felt like a big, easy going house with lots of people living there rather than a hostel.

Disliked: Rooms could get really crowded as there isn't anywhere to store belongings. But it's not a huge issue
