    Beds were comfortable, fitted sheet and top sheet already on bed, so no having to try and make up a bunk bed. Instant hot and cold water tap in kitchen.

    No lockers or windows in room. No bed lights, just an overhead that is very bright if you are in the top bunk. Small room - my 6 bed girls dorm room was so small when one of the other girls was packing her suitcase, you couldn't open the door to get in or out. Crumbs on chairs in recreational space. Cash deposit of $20 and 5% extra charge on card payments for accomodation, so effectively cash only. Single female toilet with single shower in with toilet. Three co-ed showers. Terrible customer service. I experienced sexual violence during my stay here by one of the male guests. I left after my first night stay (it happened in the morning) and when I left I was told, "You realise this isn't our fault, right?" I fully understand that the hostel can not control the actions of their guests and do not hold them at fault (although the very poor layout of bathrooms definitely contributed), but what the staff member meant was that the hostel wouldn't offer me a refund, even for the two nights I didn't stay. I was also blamed for not contacting them immediately (it happened very early morning) and then for contacting them before involving the police via the method they had used (email) because I was 'posting it online'. I am now actually posting online about this experience because prospective guests should know about the very poor response the staff showed. I would give this a 2/10 score. This site automatically calculates the score on location and comfort which were good, but I think the customer service and lack of amenities in dorm rooms needs to be considered.
