Great location, great value.”

Great location, brand new section of the backpackers, so very clean and new.
Room has zero windows, could have had a picture on the wall or anything to stop it feeling like a box

The room was really big and it&#39;s located right in the center. They didn&#39;t have parking on site but it was easy to find free parking nearby.
I know it&#39;s not the hostels fault but on our last night there was a girl shouting angrily in the hallway which was a bit scary. Shouting turn down that ******* phone several times.

The reception guy was awesome. Really pleasant, chirpy and kind. My room was indeed quite small but once I settled in, it seemed cosy. Great value for money
There was not much to complain about at all from within the backpackers. It was more the proximity to the locals outside who like Partay and it sounded rough as ol guts. Bit depressing!
