The staff were very helpful and nice. We checked in late by Michael and Greg(only staff to tell us their names) who were extremely helpful over the few days, and even remembered our names and what our plans were each day!

Hostel has helpful staff, good facilities and was comfortable to stay in. Some rooms can hear the train going by which could be disturbing. The hostel is conveniently located as is close to central city.

Showers were frustrating. Kept turning off after a minute. Easy walk to city and the breakfast was free and pretty decent. I would recommend...

Best accomodation to stay close at the center for some nigths. Few bathrooms on each floor. Lacking chairs or space their things in the rooms. Room hot as an oven with 8 people, and with little ventilation Breakfast included, useful not to waste time in the morning, and come out ready.
