Liked: It was a perfect location for what I wanted. The largeness of the property made me feel ok coming and going as I pleased. It was very clean and had everything I needed. Nice ambience.

Disliked: Only slight irritation was the bedrooms were too hot. Also it was pretty roudy outside the hostel when you were trying to sleep. Not bad enough to stop me staying again though.

Liked: The modern decor at this hostel is really really nice and it was extremely clean when we stayed both in the rooms and around the rest of the hostel. It is really great having your own personal adaptor on your bunk and also a little night light. The staff were also quite helpful.

Disliked: The atmosphere was a tiny bit impersonal because it so big but we didnt stay for long so maybe that was the reason...

19 July 2013 Amber would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is huge and because of that, has a lot to offer. We listened to live traditional music in the common area for a few hours and enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff offer city advice and are very friendly. Each bed has outlets, a personal light, and a little ledge for a nightstand to keep your phone, alarm, glasses, etc.

Disliked: I stayed in a shared room and the other guests had no concept of being quiet in the middle of the night, hence the worst night of sleep ever. But that's not a property dislike. I only wish there was hand soap and a mop in the bathroom to help keep things clean.
