Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Turned up, reception was closed, someone at the hostel found the receptionist who offered us two keys depending on which room had been made up. Neither had been cleaned and after our long journey had to search the rest of town for a room on the same night.

Stayed 1 night in Aug 2018


Office Closed on 3 visits.

Office staff had no record of my booking with Wotif. Immediately cancelled my potential visit on 30/7/2018.

Pros: Not much

Cons: Yes, better booking service.

Location: good location

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Never again

Terrible. Hostel staff don’t have a clue what’s going on, seems that no one is actually running the place. Rooms disgusting and unclean with many permenant resident making it look like a slum. Very loud.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

No lockers and dorm doors are never locked! Rooms and ensuite bathroom dirty, verry thin and uncomfortable mattress. Reception is almost never open even tho it’s said otherwise online, and nobody picks up when you call. Had to leave my key(not that you’d have needed that one anyway) with another girl because I wanted to check out(at 9am!) and reception was closed. Some nice people there tho, good wifi and a bar next door connected to it.
