Great location for the hostel and its cheap. We generally stay at backpackers if we are doing big trips as the money saved on beds is money we can spend on staying away longer. As with all backpackers you cant expect much.
However this place did surprise as the rooms get a fridge and tea and coffee facility's, we also got a free breakfast.
There is a bar attached to the hostel which like most backpackers can get very noisy and a lot of people hanging about outside. As always there are cheap drinks and vouchers that can make for a cheap start to a night out.
The free breakfast unfortunately is crap. Its toast and cereal but in a group of 4 with only about 6 other diners we had to share plates and cutlery. Heaps of people waiting just because of the lack of utensils. The milk and juice were both off as well.
Our toilet also did not work and ran water all night, and there was a little mould in the corners of the bathroom, and the doors to the rooms all seem to slam shut. Sort of things you expect in a backpackers though.
