Honestly never stayed in a worse place!! We wanted to stay at Bounce (highly recommend) but they were booked for 1 of the nights we needed so we decided to stay here just for 1 night. Walked in, without booking, booked 3 beds in a dorm. Got asked to pay up front (we paid in cash), had to provide credit...

I found this very cosy to start till I went into the bathroom over grown with mould . Towels old and stained and one was even dirty in places from being dropped while folding. TV had no antenna hooked up. Breakfast well no plates or bowls to eat from and everything was just left open with spoons in to serve.

We stayed for two nights here but never again! We got to our room and the window had a poster stuck to it with sellotape as the entire pane of glass was broken. The sanitary bins in the toilets were all full to burst which was disgusting. The baggage storage room was completely flooded and damp so we had to...

Location was good, walking distance to train. No major complaints, just not worth the price. Dorm and bathroom was nice and clean, shared by 5 ppl. Lockers were under the beds, and could only be opened one at a time, due to lack of space. Breakfast included, very simple (and no cups left, so had to drink from a bowl)....

Nice hostel in a convenient location - on the edge of prince alberts park, it's a 10 minute walk from central station, from which services run to the city's main sights and to the airport. The hostel isn't very sociable (although I did only stay one night) but the staff are helpful and the rooms are fine. The beds are...

Bad hostel and bad service. The toilets is always dirty. The rooms are very small. Smells mold in the hall and luggage room. They said free wifi but it's just for 24 hours and after that you have to pay every day. I would not stay there again.

We stayed here knowing it was a place for back packers. It wasn't dirty, but obviously wasn't the most luxurious place to stay. We booked a room with a bathroom (best option) so we had a shower and toilet to our selves. The bed wasn't so comfortable but we went in there not expecting anything great and it turned out...

We stayed in this hostel for 6 nights. The location was perfect. Close to nice restaurants and good public transport to the city center. Unfortunately the hostel itself is not so good. The kitchen is dirty and there are no teatowels, so all the crockery and the cutlery are wet and you can't dry them. We didn't cook in the...

Was surprised to see this place listed as a hotel since last time I stayed there two years ago, it was a hostel. I signed up for a twin room and that's what you get - a room with two beds and THAT'S IT. Nowhere other than the floor to put your stuff, no hooks, no cupboards, nothing. Walls are...

This place is really nice and in a great location, with some really simple changes it could improve immensely! You have to pay for wifi ($3 a day!) the kitchen is far too small and often dirty. The common room was full of flies. There are very limited power sockets in the rooms. However, the rooms themselves are good and...
