The manager Dominic was very helpful, nice clean rooms, friendly staff, great location close to major bus centre. The rooms were the cleanest I have seen in backpackers, plenty of bathrooms no waiting. Free Wifi.

Good location and a very affordable stay.The staff is very friendly and the owner Dominic has kept the environment friendly.I even like their idea of buying mugs as I want my mugs to be clean and not used by others.Its more hygienic.

I was charged an extra night's stay after I paid which was taken out of my key deposit, you cannot change the price after what was agreed and it is against the law to do so. Amazing how this hostel is only around the corner...More

Expensive place ever 45 bucks a night, really bad wifi, dirty, bad service,not so good location, worst price quality ever. They give you ugly sheets to do your own bed and you have to take it back. They take a huge $50 dollars bond too....More
