It's a shame the bathroom area was so gross

Cheap, location
It was ok but wouldn't race about it, you get what you pay for

Poorly maintained hostel

We chose this hostel thinking we'd get free parking but it wasn't the case. Apparently it is paid and there are very limited slot. We'd to park on the street. In general the hostel was filthy (even at the reception!). Carpet looked very aged/dirty. One of the men's bathroom shower stall was used as a rubbish dump - it shows how much the management cared about cleanliness! The room we stayed in was quite spartan and no noise insulation from the street, good thing we packed ear plugs. This hostel has a LOT to learn from the other hostel chains.

Not as bad as reviews made me believe

Quiet, Comfortable, Cheap
After booking the hostel I started reading some reviews which made me fear the worst, but once arrived it wasn't all so bad, it is a decent hostel for a decent price. It was quiet and the bed was quite comfortable so for 19$ this was a good night.

Proximity to events, cost, staff helpfulness
Any requests we had were calmly and efficiently dealt with. You no the saying don't judge a book by its cover that's Lodge in the City. Worn and weathered cosy comfortable accommodating quirky welcoming when you entered it. will definitely come back.

Worst stay so far
Really poor, we arrived late and were only able to get in as there were some guys hanging around outside. The entrance really doesn't look very inviting. Receptionist was not at the reception when we arrived, we had to go searching for him in the kitchen/living room. When we eventually checked in they had us booked in for a twin bunk room not the double we paid for, did not offer any discount. Twin room was cheaper than the double. When we got to the room the beds had been slept in and the room had not been cleaned. We asked for the room to be changed which they did, the sheets were clean but the mattress was essentially springs with a thin cover. One of the main light fittings had been removed leaving a hole through to the main corridor. The curtains didn't shut properly as one half had been ripped off the rail. The bathrooms on our floor didn't have working showers so I had to go up two floors to the nearest shower which was at least hot. My GF used the female only showers which were not clean and of the two showers only one had a lockable door. Overall not a great experience, we checked out as soon as we could the next morning.
