Liked: This was our first stay in a YHA and it was very good. We had a triple room for two of us so it had a double and single bed and a good size ensuite. There was a kettle in the room and a flat screen TV. It did get quite stuffy in the room with no air con but the windows opened a little.The kitchen and communal seating area was spotless. Lots of cooking equipment and crockery and good recycling facilities. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful. One word of warning, take the door code with you as the door is locked at 10pm with no other way in!

Liked: Really good position, across the rd from bus transfers, middle of town. Rooms were a nice size, clean and tidy, heater & bathroom were nice. $1 for 15 mins internet was pretty reasonable. Kitchen & eating areas were quite nice, lots of board games and stuff too :)

Disliked: ONLY 1 PHONE!!! It is a PAIN when you NEED to make a call and someone has been using it for 30 mins, and the staff wouldn't call to confirm times for transfers or anything that they havn't booked (other YHA hostel staff have been more than helpful in this regard, just not here).Kitchen was a little small and lacking some essentials like things to clean with.Was a nice hostel, however the people there at the time and the staff meant it didn't have a very nice, friendly feel...

Liked: The nearness to the centre and the view from the lounge/kitchen.

Disliked: Lounge and kitchen closed at 23.00 hrs and this was bad as there is nowhere else to sit. Hostels are about meeting people and not getting tucked in to bed at 23.00hrs.
