Nice hostel but a bit cramped
good location, friendly staff, reasonably clean
I had a nice stay at Nate's. The hostel's location is quite good, it was easy to walk everywhere. the hostel staff was friendly and even the long termers were quite open and nice. The rooms are all a bit cramped and the carpet floor just smells even though the rest of the building is cleaned every day. I preferred the upper bunk just because of the smell of the carpet. i would still recommend the hostel though!

Well located but not good

good location, cheap accomodation
location, price, free breakfirst
This youth hostel, located in a very convenient location offers a basic comfort with low price. The room was large but very messy and not very clean, same for the rest of the building. The lounge was very small, not well equiped and again very very messy. No lift, and a lot of stairs in the building so better to have a good rest before coming. This youth hostel is definitly cheap and well located but thats all. Good for short stay but not much to expect.

Dirty and don't have 24 hours receptionist
no comment
When I arrived at the Boomerang Backpackers on Monday 10/8/13 around 2.30pm, there was nobody at the counter. That's when I noticed there was this notice stating that reception counter only available in the morning and evening. So, I have no choice but to carry all my luggages to the Thai restaurant next door to have my lunch. After I checked in, I made my way to the room (fyi, my room was a twin bedroom) .Once I opened the door, I noticed the window was opened. Also, the rubbish bin was not cleared. Not to mentioned that there were left over coca-cola cups in the fridge. Everything was in a mess, even the bedsheet has hair and dust on it. I checked out the next day despite the fact that I had already booked for another 2 more nights. Never gona choose this place anymore.
