Close to city centerPosted Sep 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was convenient for me because it was so close to the city centre and the parking facilities were great and very safe

Mixed feelingsPosted Apr 25, 2012
Pros: Wifi, breakfasts, ambience.
Cons: person who tried to sell an expensive camera at a ridiculously low price was not expelled.
Location: Not a high traffic area. Other than the two stores to the left of the entrance I would not walk around at night.
There are many things to like in this hostel. Very good wifi. Very good breakfast. The guest kitchen provides free coffee. The small grocery store next door provides very good hot sandwiches. If you need razor blades walk out the front door, dogleg up Wellington Street and turn right and go to the Arab store. The bad thing is that anything you do not put into a locker may be stolen. I stayed for 14 days. I know of two stolen laptops, one wallet and credit cards, a gold chain, and two cameras which were stolen. there may have been more. Vandals smashed the downstairs window to guest kitchen area twice. The water in the showers is extremely hot and it cannot be adjusted.

Wouldn't do again...Posted Mar 24, 2010
Not a great hostel. I wasn't expecting much, it is a hostel after all, but I was really dissapointed. The who;le place just seemed dark and dingy, and I really didn't like the neighbors hoods that surrounded it. My cab driver even told me he wouldn't walk around there by himself! It's also not as close to the town center as they claim to be, but I expected that. I stayed out as long as I could and tried to only come back there to sleep.

"Trash" Throwing Maids and Blame Laying ManagersPosted Mar 20, 2010
Housekeeping mistook my shopping bag full of purchased goods as "garbage" and throw it out with the trash. The maid admitted to her mistake but the hotel manager tried to lay the blame on me and would not pay for the items his hotel staff threw away... unfortunately i had to catch my plane so was not able to sort the matter out properly....
