    The hostel's location is perfect for my work, the reception is open 24 hours, which is great for my late check-ins. The beds are comfy, the showers are clean and maintained. Everything else is superb.

    Breakfast is always a disappointment and I've never eaten despite my several stays at Haystack. There is not much selection, bread is cheap and often old, the cereals boring and not a big selection, too. The kitchen is small as well as the men's bathrooms, so you have to wait if people take a while.

    I had a nice enough stay for the night.

    By the time I arrived, personal lockers were taken by other visitors.

    Fantastic hostel - my favorite in my 6-country backpacking trip to Europe this past January. The room was cozy and beds clean and comfortable, the shower room was surprisingly spacious, toilets were clean (though a bit small), the free breakfast was good, and the guy at the front desk and friendly and knowledgeable. The location is also great if you’re taking the Airlink 100 from the airport to its last stop, Waverley Bridge. Just walk about 5 mins to find this hostel on a well-lit, major street.

    It’s about 3 flights of stairs up a relatively steep and slippery staircase. Wasn’t a problem for me because I just had my backpack, but would not recommend for anyone with heavy luggage or trouble going up a lot of stairs. Also, I can see this hostel being less comfortable when it’s at full capacity because the rooms are very small and packed - 3 bunk beds on stop of each other rather than the standard 2.
