I stayed in a 6 dorm deluxe room and it's the best backpackers I've stayed at. Rooms were extremely comfortable size, had a tv, fridge, balcony, seperate toilet and shower. Was very impressed by the room. Centrally located to all nightlife, wharf, restaurants and shops. Great facilities within the hostel and great for those chasing the nightlife. My room faced the street and didn't have trouble sleeping the night I didn't have a late one. Would definitely come back and stay again!
