City stay
The bed was very comfortable. And location perfect for exploring the city Downsides - room noisy from lounge downstairs, kitchen minuscule and men’s toilets kept leaking although they were evidently brand new

Fair 4.0
Bad Hostel
The toilet was flooding everyday and nothing was done about it, the toilets and showers were not regularly clean. The surrounding area was not very welcoming. Overall, a poor stay
Darryl, gbOther trip
Fair 4.0
Not Great. Lots can be improved
Shared area was quite good, rooms were cramped with insufficient storage space for the no of bunks in each room. No light or power sockets for individual bunks. Had to fight/negotiate to be able to charge my phone. No air con and one pedestal fan per room, great if your on the bottom bunk, hopeless for the top bunk. I woke up in damp sheets every morning as it was too hot. And what is it that there is no free Wi-Fi - seriously this needs improving. India has free Wi-Fi, New Zealand really needs to catch up! Weekly free bbq was cancelled as they couldn’t get the bbq working so we were offered popcorn and crisps instead with no big apology.
