Liked: Argyle Backpacker's is in a great location. The walk to the city center doesn't take very long, and takes you through a beautiful park on the way. The quieter area makes sleep easier at night. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a great stay!

Disliked: The hot water was a bit of an issue. The shower never got above lukewarm. Everything else was great.
