Liked this hostel as it was fun to stay in an old jail. The rooms are tiny but you have everything you need in the communal areas including kitchen, bathroom and lounge areas. Was very quiet at night despite being fully booked. Temperature was good too and they provide hot water bottles and blankets. Staff were quite indifferent but not rude. Location was fine too as we had a car but it is a bit out of the CBD. You can buy internet but we didn't bother as it was easier and cheaper for us just to buy 2degree sims with a data pack.
