Just a very basic, not so clean place
Good location. That's about it, no clean or any basic confort provided. Basic backpackers with overpriced ensuite/private rooms.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I didnt like that i had contacted them prior to booking and was told that they had parking and then when i arrive for check in, i was told no parking and had to pay. Also reception was rude, like they didnt even wanna work there. Was poor experience overall

You get what you pay for and this was budget accommodation. But it was close to the location we wanted and the bed was comfy.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Disliked: Room comfort
週末の夜はヤバいくらいうるさいです。
かなりうるさくても寝られますが、金曜日・土曜日の周りのパブのうるささには驚きました。あれだとなかなか寝られないと思います。宿泊客もそのパブに行っていたからか、廊下で大声を出したり、夜中の2時でもだいぶうるさかったです。バックパッカーなので静かで快適な事は期待していませんが、ビックリしました。たぶん、窓側の部屋やパブに隣接している部屋だけでなく、このバックパッカーズ全ての部屋がうるさく感じていたと思います。バックパッカーズに泊まっているのですから文句はないです。 スタッフはとても親切で気を使ってくれ、気持ち良く滞在する事ができました。バックパッカーズの中ではかなり良い方だと思います。
