First night the room faced the road (5 lanes of traffic) and having had the sun all day was so hot. We didn't sleep much. The one and only friendly receptionist kindly moved us to a much quieter room for our second night which was better. The location is good with a tram stop right outside that takes you straight to the centre. We were amazed at how we could stroll straight into the building and get around without any security or key needed to get in the main door and nothing to stop you bypassing the reception desk. No one seemed to care. Having stayed in HI accommodation around the world, this place had by far the most limited / lacking guest facilities. Not even a place to get a glass of water. Check out was poor and the staff member was rude. We had to leave about 15 mins before the breakfast started - I had emailed when i booked to see if something could be arranged to take with us and no one had responded. When we arrived it was a flat out no. We asked if we could have a plain bread roll to take away. No. Unhelpful when there is no means of making or storing your own food either. Not up to the usual standards expected of HI, offered a cheaper price than other places in the area, but not value for this money.

Da der Lüfter im Bad kaputt war, durchlief, hat ein Monteur den ausgestellt.Der darausgefallene Dreck blieb liegen .Auf dem WC waren Fusstapsen, auch nicht toll.Auch in den Ecken im Zimmer wurde länger nicht sauber gemacht....Schade.Ebenso das ich Handtücher kaufen musste , da keine im Zimmer vorhanden waren. Das habe ich bisher in keiner JHB im Zweibettzimmer erlebt.
