Liked: Great location! Walking distance to all attraction, shops, museums and etc.

Disliked: Packet of cigarettes and $20US taken from my room. Considering I was in a single room I can only assume backpacker cleaning my room took items.

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: They had a cafe attached, which was nice if you missed breakfast.

Disliked: The rooms were small. There was barely any floor space for my stuff (plus eight other people) and I couldn't put it in my bed because I was on the top bunk.The bathroom was difficult to find. For two days I thought there was only one toilet on our side of the floor, but it turns out there were more up a few steps. Poorly labelled signs.The staff was rude, dismissive and generally unhelpful. I spoke with someone who was living/working there and he said that their towards him was similar and didn't change until he began working there.
