      It was very relaxed and friendly, clean with plenty if facilities, though does need a refurb in some parts. Very comfortable and great to chill out in.

      It was a little too quiet sometimes.

      helpful staff, free breakfast

      guests who let the doors slam early in the morning or late at night; some dorms very small

      The free breakfast and wifi.

      The price that I was quoted (and that I paid) was more expensive than what Backpack Oz advertises their rooms for.
