Good 7.0 From 38 reviews

Good 6.0
Probably should have been cheaper for what was provided. Room smelled like curry and windows don’t open. The fan had a cord which was about two inches too short for the power point so not sure why they keep it there. Great friendly staff though.

Very good 8.0
Started off not so good but got much better
Given that I did not know that there was a $50 key deposit that had to be paid on check in I was a little annoyed not knowing that beforehand. The check in girl was apologetic and polite. The room was ok and the bed itself was extremely comfortable. The showers and restroom areas were clean and ok but could have done with a bit more regular cleaning. The water pressure and temperature in the showers was excellent. It was a nice and comfortable hostel. The location was close to the main centre and buses. I would not use google maps to get directions there as this took you a very long uphill way to walk to get there.
