Liked: The room (12bed dorm) was quite spacious and clean. But you have to pay for security locker & internet which I expected to be a service free of charge. Also all lockers are downstairs, not in the room, which was not convenient.

Customer review

12 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The security of the place was unquestionable. Everything was card access, and I felt my belongings were very safe. The staff were very friendly and helpful! I enjoyed the free activities the hostel had to offer, including movies every night, walking tour, musical performances and bbqs. The only really annoying note was that there are only two knives available in the kitchen, and they were commonly in use or hidden away. Also, the garbage never got cleared in our room.Overall, a very positive experience and I would certainly recommend it.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
