Liked: The beds werde very comfy, it's not far away from the city centre and the kitchen is very well equipped. Everything was kept very clean at all times. It's definitely a great place for little money.

Disliked: Nothing really, only the room (dorm) seemed a bit sparse

Liked: Very clean and GREAT showers!!! Very friendly atomosphere.

Disliked: The location is on top of a huge hill, so when you walk to the grocery store you have a hike back to the top. It is also located right in a Chinatown area.

Liked: The staff are great, they are all nice, they all make an effort to keep things clean and I got help carrying my luggage in and out of the hostel

Disliked: I was in the 8 bed dorm for a few days and there are no windows so it gets stinky and the entire hostel is cold, particularly the kitchen and common area. The hostel is big enough and makes enough money to get some electric heaters that can be wheeled around or something. But this place is cheap and pretty clean so, depends what you are after.

Liked: Indeed new which is nice and comfortable. Showers were great! Beds are wooden, so no earthquake-feeling when the other person is moving. 2 Power Points per Bed! Free unlimited wifi is good and fast enough, big plus. And it was quiet! No road noise

Disliked: No Window in the room. Efforts made with daylight-things in the ceiling, but it's not the same. Kitchen is too small (only 3 tables) and several people hadn't washed their dishes. And Kitchen is TV-Room as well. No on-bed-lights.

05 April 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good location at the top of Queen St. Comfortable beds. Showers and toilets clean. Free wifi.

Disliked: Lack of atmosphere. A lot of long term guests who tend to click together. Room was messy (not hostels fault, messy roommates!). Lockers in the room are very small you won't get the average sized rucksack in it. Individual light on each bed would of been great. Kitchen and tv room are effectively the same room so gets quite busy around meal times.

Liked: Really good nice rooms. Bedsite tables for each bed and a couch in the room. Everything was new and clean.

Disliked: The Wi-Fi was very slow. The lounge and the kitchen are in one room. The walk back to the hostel from the city center is quite steep.
