Positive Reviews

Relaxed atmosphere

If you’re looking for a hostel with a relaxed atmosphere, this could be the one for you! Guests have reported that, on the whole, patrons are a good bunch of people, there’s no curfew and that the overall vibe is relaxed.

Decent location

While not right in the heart of the CBD, guests have had a pretty good impression of the location. The property is found to be near shops and dining spots as well as within easy reach of public transport options.

Budget-friendly choice

This hostel is far from perfect but guests have found that the rates here mean a stay is a budget-friendly option. This property could be a good choice if you’re looking for a place that won’t eat up too much of your budget.

Negative Reviews

Property could be much cleaner

Unfortunately, comments regarding the cleanliness of this hostel indicate that you’re in for a rough ride. Guests often go so far as to describe the property as filthy. Very little deep cleaning appears to take place.

Noisy surroundings

Although there’s a designated quiet zone here, that doesn’t stop fairly large numbers of guests describing the surroundings as excessively noisy. Noise originates from the lower rooms and from the courtyard.

Smoking area too close to rooms

Guests complain that the smell of smoke (and a lot of people seem to smoke here) permeates all the rooms. This is likely due to the fact that the courtyard area (and designated smoking area) is right underneath many of the windows.
