Liked: It was cheap and the staff was friendly. It was pretty close to the Intercity bus stop, and right off Queen Street.

Disliked: The room was small and crowded and there were no lockers in it. The bathrooms weren't great. The hostel felt a bit old and dated, and the reception area was quite dark.

Liked: Location is awesome, 24 hour access and staff available. Cheap and good enough for the money, would stay again

Disliked: rooms are too stuffy, windows don't open and in the morning the aircon started switching off so it got extremely hot in the room. Room could have 1 bunk bed less and some space to put bags - there was no space anywhere to put large suitcases so they stacked up in front of the bunks and it was hard to climb up.

Liked: The best was the location, five minutes walk from bus terminal and a minute walk to bus to the airport

Disliked: It is an old office so you cannot open windows, there is only central air conditioning and sometimes is stuffy. There is only one shower on floor and two toilets, and they aren't very clean.
