Place was clean, mattress was comfy, pretty central.
Paid $27 a night and you don't even get a proper blanket. Just 2 fleece things. Surely it's not too much to ask for a blanket? I would think its the bare minimum in a place where people primarily go to sleep.
Convientently located 10min walk from the city centre
There was a massive group of school kids during our stay and they were quite noisy in the mornings.
Limited free parking and the parking lot close early.
Location is perfect for having a look around town or exploring Cataract Gorge. Kitchen is very clean and has everything you need. Laundry is available until 9 pm.
Other than that, the hostel is pretty run-down with really old smelly carpets, broken windows in the bath room, no toilet brushes (!!), no soap and non-functioning hand dryers. Linen have to be paid additionally to room rent. No clean sheets on bed - I personally don't fancy to lie in several other customers' hair among other things. Some customers were heavy drinking although against hostel policies. One night is okay if you do not have anywhere else to go.
Great people, good vibes and super friendly and helpful staff. Made me feel like at home :)
People smoking outside and the smoke came in our room, also at night.
