Great location! Budget friendly hostel.
We are a repeat guest so it means good. The location is great as it's across Botanical Gardens and Museums are just a few steps away as well. It is good also that there is a coffee shop attached to the hostel so you can have a quick breakie there or snacks. Overall we are satisfied.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Nice upgraded bathroom in the deluxe double. Only problem was the room was freezing and you could only turn the heater on for an hour and then had to keep turning it on to keep the room warm. The morning was an ice box. But it was clean and tidy and did the job
