              Even its quite far from the cbd, it is easy to get there with bus that you can catch near to the hostel. For those who like the navy scene. Its an excellent choice because it is located near to the navy historical place. Some events are organized for visitors to get chance to get into the ship and know more about the history and sailors' life on ships...

              Lots of homeless/addicts coming in, think it’s only safe if you have a private room, bathrooms/showers are very nice, clean and modern and plenty of them, no real staff about most the time though, just computer screen which is odd and not secure

              More like a Boarding House than a backpackers”

              I stayed here 5 years ago and the vibe was totally different. This could be a nice place for tourists but it seems to have become primarily accommodation for homeless people to stay inbetween addresses. This type of accommodation definitely has it's place in society but maybe don't call yourselves a backpackers? I didn't feel safe here after seeing addicts (most likely) doing a drug deal in the car park, so we avoided common areas or talking to anyone. My room wasn't dirty, nor the bathroom. Was cheap, we stayed one night, we slept, we left. I won't be back.

              Awful hostel !!!!!”

              Me and my sister booked this hostel for 4 nights and we managed to stay 1 night as it was so discusting, dirty, there were fleas all over the carpet! Me and my sister were bitten loads by what we believe to be bed bugs! There was no hotel staff as we had to speak to a lady through a computer which was very strange ! We tried to cook some food in the kitchen but it was so dirty we couldn't and then some guy came in and spat in the sink and then continued to drink the tap water from under the tap ! ( do people really not have hygiene standards) And then when we upped and left a random guy came out after us and asked why we were leaving so we explained and he said you should of come and told me ! Didn't even know who he was ! Would defiantly never stay here again and would not be recommending this hostel at all ! Stay clear !!!!!!!!

              Staff, included breakfast

              Ofcourse the location isn't ideal if you want to get to the cbd quickly. But if that's not important to you (or you drive yourself) you should consider this hostel. Easy check in, kind staff and the included breakfast was very satisfactory. Rooms are clean and so was the shower. I came back a second time. First MB's are free but after you have to purchase more. I personally find this stupid. However the city centre offers free wifi.
