    The backpackers was in a good location close to public transport. There was space for my hire car on premises. I was traveling for business on a real budget. It did the job. Clean, cheap and quite place to sleep.More

    Reception staff was nice, but the hostel it's not that good. My 6 bed room was small and extremely hot during the night, having some fans around isn't enough. The bed was comfortable. It was quiet, and overall atmosphere was quite boring. Wifi was crap.
