Positive Reviews

Lovely chilled lounge area

The public lounge on the fifth floor was quite popular with most travellers. They found it wonderfully spacious with comfortable seating and appreciated the board games and books that were made available.

Friendly, reliable staff

Guests said the staff helped them out with just about everything they needed. From providing travel tips, to assisting guests with all their minor issues, they could not have been more accommodating and knowledgeable.

All-round clean and comfortable

Overall, guests rated this hostel as phenomenally clean with super-comfortable beds. The air-con units did a good job of keeping travellers nice and cool, and all of this was considered to be at a very reasonable price too.

Negative Reviews

Lacks a little atmosphere

There are a number of strict rules that apply at the hostel. Guests felt that there wasn't much of a vibe throughout the property, but if it's a party you looking for, they found plenty of options within walking distance.

Wi-Fi is spotty

Although the official web site advertises that Wi-Fi is included in the price of the room, it didn't seem to work very well anywhere in the hostel. Guests couldn't even get a good signal in the public areas and virtually no signal in the rooms.

Early-morning noise

It does get rather noisy, especially in the mornings. Guests complained about getting woken up by slamming bathroom doors and loud voices. Make sure you bring along your ear plugs.
