Nice location

Nice location, good staffs, free pancake!
This is the second time I'd been there because I couldn't fine an accommodation with a nice location like this, hotel's staffs was fine but some staff at the restaurant under an accommodation was quiet, she wasn't friendly I think and that why I didn't want to have a free dinner!

Value in a city full of expensive alternatives

Location, clean and value
Staff efficient and helpful, as a local rather than a traveller this accommodation meets my needs as I usual stay in the city for recreational purposes and therefore require a bed to sleep. Therefore not paying OTT prices is my prime concern hence private rooms in backpackers offers the best value for me.

what you expect
It is what you expect from a hostel. Squeaky bunk beds and OK comfort. One of the drains of the showers did not work. You did get a free meal for dinner that was always just OK.
