Customer review

With my spouse / partner

Business / conference

23 May 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location is excellent, and free wifi and breakfast are included (although not at the hostel location, rather, at another hostel a short walk away.) The price for two people in a private room/shared bath was excellent, at approximately $9 per person per night.

Disliked: The managers were not overly friendly or helpful, although they were not bad either. Breakfast being available only after 9 am was slightly inconvenient, and the wifi being accessible only at the neighboring hostel was also not terribly convenient. The main dislike I had was the odor in the bathroom, which obviously was not vented properly. The bathroom was always clean, but the odor of sewage was constantly there.

Liked: right in the centre

Disliked: Staff acted strangely hurried. Had to pay in a sister department of the hostel and then walk five minutes to our room in the real hostel. The suggestion to first see the room and then pay was not appreciated.
