    Location was easy and close to most things in town. The single stall toilets and showers were okay.

    The rooms were really crowded. It's also really close to a couple of bars/clubs, so there was extremely loud music playing until around 2am.

    I was competing at a cycling event and backpackers was very close to everywhere I needed to go. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was functional and very adequate. I think patrons should be advised however that it is an extremely noisy location.

    The noise level at night was unacceptable and made sleep impossible. It is totally unsuitable as a place to stay for anyone who does not want to party. The backpackers is located in a street full of bars and nightclubs and the extremely loud music doesn't stop until 3am and thereafter you are continually disturbed by returning partygoers.

    The manager was very friendly and helpful, the bathroom was great but the bedroom very basic.

    Carrying our luggage up to the top floor is a little arduous and as there is no parking we had to park at the police station to secure our car and contents.

    Rooms were modern and clean. The location is excellent, staff friendly. For a budget backpackers it rates among the best I've stayed in

    There is only one thing not to like about this place, unless you love to party! Until 2am on Friday evening sleep on the lower floors is almost impossible due to the bass of the music from the bar beneath!
