Got charged $5 to walk in the door for nothing. Other patrons walked in got charged to. Staff appeared inexperienced. No one knew what was going on. Young woman at the door was yelling out to someone to find out if she could go instead of charging people to come in. Slushy machine blew the fuse on the beer fridge....

We stayed here 1 night. It was a very easy booking over the phone. It was a tiny room, but that's what you expect from a back packers place, our own bathroom& full use of the kitchen, which had everything you need for breakfast. Location was great. Very quiet on the night we stayed. Good value for money.

Stayed one night at Lloyds, cheap accomodation, rooms are what to expect from a cheap backpackers hostel, but I've got to admit, the bathrooms were not in a good shape and very dirty as well! The bar is nice though.

Great if you want a permanent room. Very reasonable rates especially if you get a room at the back away from the weekend band noise. Excellent staff, very helpful. There's a 200 character requirement for this review. I done know why. I've pretty much said all that needs saying ;-)

They steal your $20 key deposit. The signs say when they will be open in the morning to return your key, but the hours they are actually open were different. Normally, an hour would not be a big thing, but my flight meant I could not wait for the new, changed hour. I wrote a note asking them to credit...

The owners did forewarn regarding the noise, pity the noise wasn't the worst bit.... I was next door to a couple who had loud domestics every night and had the television on constantly at a very loud volume. As the walls are paper thin, it sounded like both activities were happening in my own room - I could hear every...
