    I stayed in a private room on the 8th floor and took the best shower I think I’ve ever taken in a hostel.

  • 6.0.Good

    Staff were friendly and the property was central. The single room had significant water stains on the ceiling tiles. The bed frame needs wiping down as it looks dirty, but the bed itself was comfortable. The hand basin in the communal bathroom was very discoloured, yet another bathroom had a tidy basin. As a Kiwi, I was embarrassed that this reflects badly on our hospitality industr.y

    Nice place but there is just so many people. This makes it hard to keep bathroom or other facilities clean. Kitchen cleaning hours were not at right time!
