Liked: Good location, that's pretty much it.

Disliked: Having been travelling a lot for the past 4 years, I stayed in hundreds of backpackers but I think I never met so unfriendly and useless staff. They obviously do not mean what customer care means and if, by staying in a backpacker, you do not expect things to be perfect from a service perspective, at least you expect to feel the place friendly, welcoming and some good vibes from the staff. Well do not expect that as you will just be treated as 1 more random number as the staff there just does not care for the guests. The bathrooms were quite dirty and clearly not clean enough, the bar downstairs absolutely without character especially compared to the good ones down Courtney Place. And the rooms far too small to have so many beds. I had to stay there as there was no more room available in other hostels, now I know why this was the only one with vacancy! Avoid at all costs, you'll find better everywhere else! (I moved to Waterloo and there is just no comparison...).
