I stayed at his hostel with two friends for one night in December 2012 and it was wonderful. Reception were lovely and helpful. The room I slept in was good with very comfortable beds. The pillow and doona I had were so much more comfortable than previous hostels. When I was there I think a new shower had just been installed? It must have been recent because it was absolutely delightful. I had been in so many dirty/cold/strange showers and this one was SPOTLESS and so warm :)
The kitchen is nice and homely with cereals, toast and juice on offer in the morning. I was so happy to see the availability of some orange juice and vegemite on toast. Eating my brekky sitting at the dining table made me feel like I was at home which was nice because I had been feeling a little homesick.
So all in all it was perfect for my needs: I had a place to sleep at the last minute, a warm comfortable bed, a nice shower, good breakfast and lovely company.
