Backpacking / gap year

04 September 2012

Liked: The property is well maintained and clean with large, comfortable rooms.

Disliked: The hotel itself is nice, but there was a constant string of small annoyances. The pictures on Hostelworld show an outdoor, patio seating area, but this isn't part of the property, it's the bar across the street. We arrived around 1 pm after a very, very long night of travel, but there was nowhere to rest until we could check in at 3 p.m. The hostel charges for wi-fi, then charges again for towels, then charges again for even a coffee/tea & croissant breakfast, etc. I wanted to like the Des Artistes, but it felt like every time I approached the front desk they had another small annoyance waiting for me. I wouldn't stay again.

Liked: Secure key card locked rooms. Helpful staff. No curfew. Free internet and computer access. Lockers to use (if have padlock).

Disliked: No kitchen to use, have to ask staff to use things from the kitchen. They are happy to provide crockery, boiling water and fridge space but you are not allowed to enter the kitchen, can only freely use a microwave - ok but annoying. Reception on the 5th floor. Bathrooms never very clean.

Liked: Very clean. I was put in a two person room whe I had signed up for a multi-person dorm room. That was very nice of the front desk attendant. They were very helpful also.

Disliked: No free wi- fi or breakfast but the room praise was low so you had that trade off.

Liked: Good value for money and clean rooms. Really good location for station.

Disliked: Although walkable its kind of far out for the city centre. OK during the day but didnt venture too far at night due to issues of getting back.
