    friendly staff hostel

    by

    I stayed twice at this hostel; every time i met friendly travellers; Dormitories were clean.
    Comments taken from 'trip adviser' are sometimes exagerated, why is it so usefull to read them?

    Unique Quality: From the office you have a nice view over central business district.
    I f you use the main bus station, this hostel a located near downtown, so easy to reach for early departure.

    Directions: kensington, five kilometers east of CBD

  • Crappy place

    by

    Horrible place! It describes itself as ´The Mother of All Backpackers´. Indeed...if your mother was old, saggy and wrinkly!

    The paint was peeling, the walls had cracks, the tap was dripping and the locks were hanging off the doors. And when we moved into our room, a large rat, the length of my forearm, dashed out!

    But it is clean, the staff are lovely and the showers are hot (even though the bathroom was dismal). Their transportation prices were approximately 20% more than what we found outside.

    Unique Quality: The dogs, Vila and Scruffy, are very cute! Airport pickup was much appreciated.
