Reviewed 5 May 2012

Me and my girlfriend arrived very early in the morning and was met by the owner of the hostel. He told us our room would not be ready as it was 7am but he showed us around the hostel and all the things we needed to know. The double beds are 2 twins beds pushed together but to me it made no difference as they were comfortable and not the typical prison style mattress you get at a hostel. It is very safe and in a great location, no noise whatsoever.

The owner goes out of his way to make sure you are ok and having a good time. We had a greyhound bus at 8pm and as we were leaving to go there, he offered to drive us there (2 rucksacks, 2 backpacks and a food bag) You can imagine how happy we were to get a lift instead of walking.

Perfect

We arrived at this hostel expecting it to be ok from reviews but found a dirty unmade bed which claimed to be a double. I changed the sheets myself and when speaking to the owner the following morning was told they just made it look tidy from the guests before - entirely disgusting! Apparently we were compensated by having a double bed which is what we had paid for which incidentally is twin beds pushed next to each other - overall a dirty place with unhelpful staff - avoid if you can.

I stayed in the ladies only dorm. Thankfully max 4bed dorm, I wouldn't wanna share with too many. The place is clean eg. toilets, bath, room, kitchen etc. All sheets are cleaned whenever anyone leaves. Comfy mattress. The place is quiet with FOC wifi. I wasn't a tourist so I stayed indoors most of the time. It's about 10mins walk away from the busy city streets, so there's less noise at the surrounding area. I had to check out earlier than expected, and was given a refund. The Skylink from the airport drops right in front of the hostel.

Cons : Ladies only dorm is right next to the computer area, so for the late nighters typing away would keep you awake.
Pros : its away from the kitchen, so you won't be awaken by the clingclang of pots & pans in the morning & burnt toast.

Hostel 109 was my first hostel experience and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The staff are genuinely wonderful and extremely helpful. Clean rooms, big kitchen and fridges, free Internet....it was really accommodating. Thanks to Malcolm for helping me feel so welcome!! Great place to stay....if you're leary about a hostel stay you do not have to worry about this place!!!!

I recommend this hostel if you are looking for a budget accommodation. They got shared rooms and also double room, which is where we stayed. It is clean, in a great location and the staff was lovely and helpful.
