    Location, lower cost

    It was very unclean when we got there. My sheets had stains. The bathrooms had toilet paper and rubbish everywhere including my room. It was later cleaned. Upon arrival the staff didn’t give us towels, we had to ask later and were almost charged for them and then were told these were supposed to be given with the room. The lift didn’t work properly and kept taking us back to ground floor. We were charged for overstay the next day which we were over by 30 mins which was fair enough ( I wasn’t well) but given the quality of our stay I don’t think this should have happened. Staff even mentioned they weren’t happy with some aspects of management I found this unprofessional but understandable given my experience. The website was not accurate in the rating of this backpackers. This was the reason we chose this one. A lower rating and better service would have meant value for money.

    The staff were very friendly and approachable. The location is no joke, definitely the best you can hope for although you get a lot of noise from the street you are right near the train and within walking distance to all the major attractions of the city. It was extremely easy to get to and from the airport as it was basically a straight line.

    The shared bathrooms on the first floor had some issues. The latches would get stuck on the shower and the one for the bathroom was stuck on occupied regardless weather it was locked or not. Depending on the floor you will get noise from the street, and if you there on a weekend there will be a lot of it.

    The heating as that was the major attraction for me because I'm sensitive to cold as I get unwell quickly,) The pancakes brekky! On the second day, I found my bed made up with clean sheets and the floor vacuumed as well that made me happy! (It was done by mistake as the changer thought I had checked out! :P)

    1) The creaky bunk beds and lots of them as it was a dorm. 2) Climbing up to the top bunk bed and coming down every now and then (I was inspecting 4-6 rental shared units every day) 3) The mess on the floor - heaps of luggage and personal stuff of 10 beds or more! Every person should have personal space on the floor to keep their luggage and personal items like shoes. 4) The lockers had insufficient storage space e.g. I had a 20Kg and a 10 Kg suitcase and none of them fit in the top/bottom locker I had beside the top bed. 5) I couldn't sit on someone else's bed to wear shoes and every day I'd open my case to take out the towel and toiletries and keep my daily day and sleepwear on my top bed! 6) A couple of females arrived in the dorm despite fully all booked beds and didn't know where to step like m a couple who arrived from some other dorm were happy to move in because of its spaciousness! 7) A few staff members coming in turn by turn inquiring about my name and my bed and questioning if I knew which beds were occupied last night.
