Cheap clean and friendly staff!

Is a cheap hostel, close to the central area, even from outside looks old and dirty I fould a clean and pretty new room.
The staff was friendly, even I had a problem with the checkout time they were really understanding. Finally a good experience!

Fridge in the room
Not a place to stay for long, but a few nights is okay. The rooms are hot and ours was not clean, and bugs were running around on the floor and the walls. The beds were okay and clean and the toilet/bath facilities were cleaned 3 times a day, tho it was only a quick whipe over. The kitchen could use a update, and it was dirty, but functional.

Location And budget

location, price, staff
honestly the location is okay and for that much of money you will get the value, but don't expect much in room condition, or expect entertainment. Good to spend the night and keep going

Adam B. Families with young children Australia, January 16, 2015
Great location, but dilapidated

Location was handy
The room was unclean (picked up big wads of hair from the floor - obviously not vacuumed recently or cleaned properly; the mattresses were torn, at least the sheets were clean; the tiny shower was filthy and the roof had completely peeled and was covered in mould) - I refused to let my son use the communal bathrooms, I went in there once and it had just been cleaned (straight bleach, which was probably a blessing) but the cleaner had basically just pushed the mess around with their mop... definitely the worst accom I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in plenty of hostel style accom before). The website pictures were very selective, congratulations to the photographer for finding shots that made it look neat and tidy
