Kitchen services were really poor: no glasses, no cups, no cutlery: in addition the room was really cold and it was almost impossible to stay there. All the other services were OK, but it was really uncomfortable many people smoking in a living room not so wide...

This Hostel is not even a member of Hosteling International. HI seems to be losing the plot. We booked out after one night. The HI Sign still on building. Regards, Ed Boyd, Casino, Australia. Member for over 20 years.
