Liked: The staff are really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There are only a few bathrooms and they are old and cannot function properly. It is super stupid to have bathrooms without basin for hand-washing and you have to go back to your room to wash your hands. This is absolutely unhygienic.

Liked: The staff are really friendly and there are a number of activities offered by the hostel. Location is great, really close to Market St.

Disliked: The wifi is alright in the common room, but doesn't work well in the dorm rooms. The hostel could definitely use some updating, and there were no lockers in the rooms (though there are some on the first floor).

Liked: Just Awesome....... The location is perfectly fine for any type of traveler. The help desk staffs are wonderful, They will help you every time you need. Many things I can write: Clean, perfect location, Good people, Value of money, Good wi-fi (In lounge and downstairs its perfect and in room its limited), Well equipped Kitchen, Morning Pan cake free, Coffee and tea unlimited, Those who drink free beer most of evening, free pizza some day of week.. and many more....

Disliked: I have one suggestion: There should be at least one Indian style toilet, so that travelers from Indian continent can stay more comfortably.

Liked: The price and location is really good for travellers that are new to Their way out in the city without getting lost.

Disliked: Facilities in the hostel should be improved to meet international standards at least. The showers are really bad and they need to be replaced with with handy ones. The breakfast is poorly organised and need to be improved

Liked: Staff. Donna, Stephanie, Rochelle, Asal, Mandy, Lee and specially Marquita are there to give excellent customer service. They are friendly and highly professional who know how to cater to customers. I can never imagine this hostel without these staff members.

Disliked: At first, the general facility was unkempt until Donna and Marquita came. Now, the facility is spic and span clean at all hours. Donna and Marquita work very hard so that you would not walk into the kitchen with a mess that looks like it has been sitting there for a while. I cannot commend Donna and Marquita enough for a great job they've done with the facility.
