          Its a 1923 backpackers hostel its old but very well maintained and clean. Full of history and character. Lovely place and well worth the stay. Basic facilities like communal kitchen and bathrooms are clean and tidy.

          First of all we booked this place via Hotels.com. They gave it a 2.5 star rating which was very generous. We missed the small print during the booking process that mentioned there are no private toilets or bathrooms, everything is shared and down the hall....More

          Would NOT recommend this accommodation The showers were communal and no privacy No locks The place was dirty and the badly planned kitchen area needed a lot of attention to bring it up to a reasonable standard One night was one too many
