The great thing about this hostel is that they provide free pick ups from the airport. We were greeted by Herman who was very friendly and chatty. It all started so well!
I was disappointed when arriving at the hostel as the exterior is very run down, this continued inside and it appears very grubby. We had to give a $20 deposit which I did not understand as there was no key for the rooms, just locks with a passcode.
The bedroom is incredibly basic. I stayed in a 6 bedroom share room. The room is spacious enough, however dirty and very run down. The floor was covered in dirt, dust and bits. I also noticed that one of the guys who was sleeping did not even have a pillow case, he just had another sheet to wrap around his sheet. The other guy in the room also did not have a sheet on his bed which I found quite gross.
The beds are the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in. The mattresses are so thin and you can feel every single slat beneath you digging into your back.
I was thankful when I saw that the rooms had lockers, but then realised that you have to pay $1 each time you use them (ie every time you unlock them and want to lock them again you have to pay $1)
The indoor shower is very dirty and does not look like it has been cleaned in a long time. The showers downstairs are a lot cleaner and nicer, so if you stay here, I recommend that you use them!
The free pancakes in the morning are great, just make sure you use one of the better pans and not one that burns everything! Herman is a nice guy, however I think he is not that interested in providing a nice clean budget place to stay, he is more interested in hanging out with all the backpackers smoking. This is nice that he is sociable, however, I think there needs to be more of a balance.
