“alright, but have seen better ones”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2011

I was told it was renovated previously so that bathrooms are now in the room. This is not a great feature, but standard for hostels nowadays.
The room wasn't very clean and didn't feel comfortable. The bar was lame. Kitchen good. Ask for a bed in the lower etage of a bunk bed as they are bigger.
The location was close to the big shopping centre and not basically good located. However, I did not feel safe at 7pm 5mins away from the hostel. As tourist you never know how safe it is anyways, but I rarely felt as uncomfortable as there.
Not too far away from Greyhound station.

Room Tip: ask for a lower bed = bigger; near shopping centre

A Strange hostel. We booked into a dorm, but when we arrived we were told there were no mixed dorms, so we had to upgrade to a double. There didn't seem to be any travellers there although it was 'off season'.

Free Wi-fi was good and fast, but other than that, the hostel was over priced and not very pleasent. Seemed to be in a rough area, did not seem very safe at night. The bar was ok, but again, no atmosphere.
