I really enjoyed my stay at sleeping inn. You had access to free reasonably fast wifi, your own kitchen within a 8 person dorm and the staff are friendly. There is something on every night which encourages people to get together and socialise. You can bring your own alcohol to the hostel which saves you money. I would definitely recommend...

Upon arriving at the sleeping inn I felt very welcomed, Ben behind reception was really helpful and directed us to the city centre. I was then taken up to my room and invited to join them for a bbq and a night out which I agreed to. The bbq was really nice and we then played a load of drinking...

Only three things to say: hot, tiny, filthy No ac, cocroaches, plastic cutlery, disgusting pool, one bathroom for 8 people... Not even a ladder for the top bunks. Bathroom flooded all the time. No hand soap. Stove took 2hrs to get warm. Spent as little time as we could there.

This hostel is a great experience with something to do everyday! By far the most welcoming hostel we have stayed in so far on the east coast! We were greeted by 3 young lads who were so welcoming and got us involved the minute we arrived!! The small guy think his name was Jordan was hysterical and definitely made our...

This was the worst hostel I've ever been to. No air conditioning, no lockers, very dirty,.. had to sleep in the hallway of a little apartment and share one toilet + bathroom with 8 people. Just try to avoid that

Had a twin room which was like a mini oven. Our fan was broken , staff gave us another one but still so hot. Not sure why aircon isn't included in the price we payed. People slept on the balcony because it was so hot. Showers were dirty and kitchen didn't have any tea towels or washing up liquid. I...
