Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The lack of Power points and the cramped uncomfortable conditions of the beds made this place a very disappointing experience. I wouldn't recommend for a long term stay.

This was a well located hostel with lots if food and shopping available close. Some staff were very friendly and helpful while others were not. Single rooms were spacious. Property could use a bit of TLC and it would be really good place.
