30 August 2009 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: Clean room, excellent central location for exploring the city. Only issues were lack of a fan in the room, only one set of olets/showers on each level and be aware if about 15 steps leading up into the hote for those travelling with suitcase!

Customer review

14 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: First room we were given had a broken lock on the window which led out to the fire escape (not good security) but they did eventually give us another room.This hostel does not see your deposit as a deposit but as a fee you pay to hostelbookers. They therefore ensure the ' balance' you pay is the full price of the room. They are effectively expecting you to pay their advertising rather than absorbing the cost themselves. This was dissapointing and different to the practice of most other hostels on this website.Very average place

01 November 2008 Bente would recommend this property

Liked: The friendliness of the staff was fabolous. The question concerning meeting people and party is difficult for me to answer, because we were two elderly couples who weren't interesting in partying.In fact we stayed 3 days longer than we had booked because we liked the atmosphere and the friendly staff.

Fraser Thompson

03 October 2008 Fraser would recommend this property

Liked: In good area away from the needle pushers, great value we stayed at hostel closer to bus station called c&n Backpackers on last night, it was more expensive and in a really dodgy area with a nasty interior. St Clair had cheap internet access and we could get in there late which was really handy for late arrivals.
