Recommended if want a hip place to meet people

The mIn receptionist was not very pleasant, always cringing and speaking over the top of me. I really liked the rest of the staff though. They provide complementary tea, coffee and orange juice, which is just so relieving and comforting. There was free printing which was useful and nice too. This is a party hostel, so one night was a screaming competition in the common room, which I am sure has given perminsnt hearing loss and I wish the staff had tried to calm down the drunken people for other guests' sake. The bathrooms were never over occupied, never having to wait. However I found only the disabled toilet shower was usable, the rest swirted sparcely and weren't sufficient. Great oitchen!

Some problems.

Not incredibly friendly receptionist (the main one). This is a party hostel, thus the common room was a yelling competition one night, which I am sure has done perminant hearing damage to me. Shocked the staff did not try to control them for the wake of other calm guests wanting to use the computers or eat. Only the disabled toilet shower was decent enough to use, the remaining 3 on the level were dribbles. The lift is very slow. Otherwise, pretty good place.

Excellent location but beds were very noisy. There was only one light for a room with 10 beds so you could not see anything at night. Room didn't have any heather so it was cold (beds next to window). No light in halls during night.

Nice hostel

Posted Mar 8, 2012
Pros: wi-fi, lounge area, meeting people.
Cons: not very easy to find, or at least not very well explained on the instructions on how to get there.
Location: I think it was a little far away.
This hostel was a big surprise for me, it was clean, the staff is very friendly. the wi-fi service was great. I met some fellow travelers there. It was such a great experience staying at Purple Nest.
