Noisy

Having stayed in backpackers all over the world I am used to noise but this was diabolical. There was the usual person playing a movie at full volume in their room and people yelling in the corridors at all hours both unacceptable but normal but on top of that was the screaming air conditioner/fans and very loud coke machine. The loud speakers telling those to get out at 10am pity if you paid for 3 nights and wanted a sleep in. Also annoying every evening selling their bar. The doors also made loud noise when used. I am sure there are better places to stay.

probably better service when it was a homeless shelter

This used to be a Salvos home. The building has got worse. Three phone calls gave three different answers on late check out. The 10am check out is a major shambles. Virtually no staff to handle dozens and dozens of guests. Absolute bedlam.

Good for location

Reception staff were very unhelpful, asked one guy where the post office is...he kind of just shrugged and said he didnt know. Noisy but thats expected I guess, although room was clean on arrival.

handy to noise

Helpfull staff, the lift should be in a museum, so benefited most people who used the healthy stair option instead. The noise from the pub underneath was very loud and seemed to go on all night. So dont stay here if you want to sleep.
