The backpacker location is very good but was let down badly by the middleaged manager who was v rude and made me feel very uncomfortable.
I would have cancelled the booking but very busy the weekend I was there and not a lot else available, so decided just to put up with it.
Room was very cold with poor heating.
Noisy rooms, but that's problem true of many backpackers.
Good for groups but avoid the chauvinistic rude manager.
