Helen Baker

10 February 2009 Helen would recommend this property

Liked: Nice comfy hostel, huge though, much more like a hotel. Not so good to meet loads of people and go out partying etc, but other than that great. Massive clean kitchens, consistently clean rooms / bathrooms, very quiet and airy.... right opposite the supermarket and a 30 second walk into town. A little far from bus stops or ferry ports etc but you can get a city bus to the corner.

Disliked: Helen left no negative feedback.

Rebecca Lumb

22 November 2008 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: It was very clean and the rooms were quite big. Only thing I would say about the rooms is that the beds squeak and clang loudly so you can move around a lot without waking everyone up. There are all different kinds of bathrooms scattered about, which is good. But you may get lost bcoz it's so big, it's a bit of a maze. There are two kitchens and big dining areas, as well as a TV room, a reading room and more communal areas. Definintely one of the best YHAs.
