Liked: Good location right in centre of town.

Disliked: It is impossible to adjust the temperature in the shower and it is far too hot. Be warned and prepared to stand to the side and splash water onto yourself. There aren't nearly enough power outlets in the rooms and the ones they have are halfway up the wall with nowhere to put your device. They take great pleasure in kicking out the quiet people sitting quietly reading in the hallways at 11pm but do nothing about the people running around screaming all night. Because they are attached to their own bar you can't bring in your own alcohol.

Liked: This is at a very central location. OK sociable environment. Most people get to know each other through Stray or Kiwi experience.

Disliked: Wifi needs to be paid. (Note premium internet access was actually very good when I used it). There is a club/bar downstairs - which can get quite loud on the weekend (and the vibration produced from their bass is quite annoy).

Liked: the en-suite we had for the 6 bed dorm which was large with plenty of space especially considering other hostel dorms we had been in

Disliked: the kitchen seating area is very small and the kitchen doesn't stay open late.The lack of other showers and toilettes, even though our room had an en-suite it still meant waiting for 5 other people.Check-in was incorrect on the hostel bookers website
