Customer review

02 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel was in a fantastic location and pretty clean. Overall though, it was probably not the best deal for your money. Breakfast was very very limited, there is tons of security before entering the room but no lockers in the actual rooms (and you must pay to rent them), and there is no where to sit in the rooms.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Customer review

30 May 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good value and secure hostel, BUT the 11am to 3pm lockdown on the rooms for cleaning was a bit of an inconvenience. Also, I dont see how they advertise a room for a set price online and then when you just roll up and pay for the room with cash, the price has doubled. Not a good way to do business guys. Sort out these minor issues, you have a winning hostel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
