This hostel has a nice common area and bar setup. Other than that it needs some improvement. WiFi only in the lobby, dorms don't have a single electric outlet, and 2 of the 3 women's showers were broken. Breakfast was bread and nescafe. A little bit of work would go a long way.

I was very disappointed with this HI hostel, the brand of which seems to be getting poorer and poorer as it gets ever more expensive to stay in. This hostel was ok in terms of price but the atmosphere was not conducive to an enjoyable stay. The staff and guests had their own little clique which could not be penetrated...

I can't think of one good thing about this hostel. * Terrible service, the staff is disrespectful and uninterested. * The beds are horrible and falling apart * Breakfast in jail is probably 20 times better than the piece of bread and "coffee" they give you * No towels (not even to rent or buy) all they could offer was...

We initially booked three nights in a double en suite, after reading the description that the private rooms were sleek and boutique-like. We had to change our plans, giving plenty of notice and calling in advance to ensure that we would still have the same room, but for only one night. We were assured on the phone that this would...

HI perks include: computers, WIFI, clean bathrooms, good location and great patio. drawbacks: rowdy groups, variable service, it's overpriced, and there is only bread and coffee/tea for breakfast. additionally, i am pretty sure my iPod was stolen in the 3 days my bag was "guarded" in their unlocked closet accessible to anyone.
