    Everything brilliant but please fix the door cards!! I’ve stayed here many many times and the standard is consistently high. Staff are helpful and friendly, it’s spotlessly clean, reception areas are too class, bathrooms always clean with… read more

    But please sort out your door key cards!! I had to have mine reprogrammed four times on one day! I don’t mind standing in my boxers at reception after being locked out of my room after going to the shower. I have a gorgeous body, but it might put off some of the other guests! Another couple had to reprogramme their card three times on the same day. This happens every time I stay and it’s the only negative. I’m very careful with card clash and keep my card in a special holder. Please guys sort this out then it would be absolutely perfect!! More

    Nice hostel experience The overall hostel experience was very nice with the exception of breakfast: the selection of food was very basic (although warm croissants and soy milk were a nice touch) and… read more

    The building itself is very nice, especially the communal space: the lounge room and the bar. The beds were ok, the bathrooms generally clean.

    Also, if you rely heavily on a perfect wifi connection, you might be disappointed. On the other hand, the lounge room is the perfect place to get some work done. More
