    Walking time from the hostel to the SkyBus was under 5 min. Very convenient if you have to catch an early flight.

    OK for one night but wouldn't stay longer. Kitchen looked like a bomb site, sinks were blocked with food leftovers. Shower drains were full of hair. Both you can't only blame on the hostel itself, but when we took duvet cover off in the morning we found nasty big brown stains on the duvet. Neither walls nor windows seemed to significantly reduce the noise from the streets below. Add people coming back chatting and banging doors all through the night so you won't get much sleep. Maybe appealing for the young party crowd who will enjoy all the like-minded travellers and free dinner offered there.
