Didn't feel very social or friendly in the common areas, maybe could be laid out a bit better? No hand soap in toilets was a downer.

Thanks for giving us your feedback following your stay with us. The layout of the hostel is dictated to the original design of the building, with the common areas being placed on the 3rd floor rather that spread across the building. We will follow up with regards to the hand soap in the washrooms as there should be dispenser in each one. Steve - Area Manager

We really enjoyed the queen ensuite room - one small detail suggestion: a hook on either side of the shower would be nice - there wasn't a good place to hang a towel/toiletry kit near the shower/sink. Excellent kitchen layout and storage areas for food! Wonderful assistance booking the SuperShuttle to the airport.
