We were kindly greeted and got a room for four people.
In the room were two bunk-beds and a simple sink. We only stayed in the room to sleep. Budget Backpackers attracts mostly young people so it can become quite noisy in the evenings (even though the staff wants it to be quiet after a certain hour)
Bathroom with toilet and shower were right outside our room. It was not so much space, but it was fresh.
Down on the bottom floor were very pleasant activities in the evenings. There was also a pub/restaurant that served simple dishes and drink at very good prices. The staff were very nice all the time!
In summary, Budget Backpackers is for those who want to sleep cheap in a good location! It is a place for you that is OK with just the basic stuff.
