Excellent value but there is a cost!
Okay so I’m a 54 year old married woman and not the target market client for a hostel. However we wanted a cheap centrally located place to stay. On the plus side it’s cheap and a safe location, even if a bit mixey. The staff were super helpful (especially Grant), the room (we had a private en-suite room) was spotless and the bed comfy. Also there was free breakfast from 6am and cheap food in the evening. On the negative side the room was tiny and very noisy during the night. On our first night someone blow dried their hair at 2am in the communal bathroom waking us up. On the second night someone was violently sick. We got little sleep! However after the first night I was saying this is brilliant why do we normally stay in hotels but after the second realised there was a reason we did. So all in all good value for money but remember it’s a hostel aimed at young people and not oldies like me!

Too hot.
The room was hot. Like, stiflingly hot. I was on the top floor, room 307. The small fan and tiny window did nothing. The room did not cool down to an even slightly comfortable level till around 3:00am and even then was still likely around 27 degrees. Oh, and there was a literal murder just outside at 3:30. The sirens made it impossible to sleep even though the room had finally cooled down. Would not stay again.

I have put my credit card on virtual long time ago, did not realise Canadian still rely on the plastic card. Staff here helped me to check in without the plastic card, which is really nice. But the living condition is little bit disappointing.

The stay was comfortable. Bathroom’s hand dryer wasn’t working and neither there were paper towels, so that was a bit of an inconvenience. And there was a foul smell in the showers which would bother you a lot. There was a complementary breakfast every morning. It’s located exactly in the centre of the downtown, so there many homeless around the area but it was still safe, you just need to be careful. And of course there are many pubs and bars around and it's by the road, so you could expect noise. Just bring your ear plugs with you and you’ll be alright. One thing I loved was the little fan on each bed. Just by the switchboard of your bed, they have attached a little fan instead of just giving one big fan for all the beds like many other hostels. Overall, for the price, it’s really worth it.
