Reviews

Excellent location, staff very patient and helpful when we had a problem with a locker (friend locked the security password in with their luggage so couldn't get their bags out (and no, it really wasn't me!)), great view from roof-top terrace, breakfast good value, common area very comfortable and room was very clean. Liked very much that our 4 person dorm had an ensuite. Our ages ranged from 50 - 60 and we would most definitely stay here again.

Budget meal tip

Pancakes on the Rocks isn't too far a walk and is open late. Typical all-day breakfast fare, but it hits the spot after a long day traveling. Circular Queue is about a 10 minute walk away, so all the shops and cafes, etc. are right there too.
