Great 2 nights stay

Clean, safe, strategic location
Our stay was great. The room was warm and clean. The staff were attentive even though it was a busy time during our stay. The hostel was quiet, so we had a good sleep. Hot water was flowing at every hour of the day. The toilet s and the showers were clean, no long line to access one.

Cosy stay

Location, price, and security
Good, expect there was a fight between two friend out the front of my room on the third floor, lots of yelling and swearing, as well as some fists thrown, but the YHA staff handled it well and police came within a few minutes to difuse the situation. The offenders were locked up and blacklist from staying at that YHA again.

Enjoyable stay in a good location for tourists

Our family room was clean and tidy, the kitchen was handy and the cafe served good inexpensive breakfast
The layout of the rooms provided good security and noise mitigation. Security keys were great. 2 rooms of locker storage for post-checkout were excellent. We stayed in a private family room so can't comment on dorm facilities and security. Felt clean and staff were positive and helpful. All guests were respectful of property and others which can sometimes be a challenge in hostels but I think by maintaining clean facilities it raises the behaviour. Would recommend highly for a low cost stay.

Very easy stay

Clean, great location, very friendly
I was comfortable and slept very well. The room was very very hot during the day but this did not affect me because I was busy during the day. With out toilet or bathroom facilities in the room I would I would rate the hotel at 3. The bathroom amenities were clean . The shower was difficult to get hot and ran cold quickly, which was a bit disappointing. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

Staff members were great at their job.

Location close to where I needed to visit, staff readiness to assist with queries and needs, and closeness to shops.
It was a short stay but nothing to regret.
