Lovely open layout with plenty of courtyard permitted sun to flood the big fresh space. Stayed in a Queen Ensuite with my partner and everything was clean, functioning, efficent, and exceeded expectation. Such a nominal walk to the hot strip of P. Dougie its beyond convenient for gettin out and about, not to mention the provided ease of parking right in fornt of the hostel, shaded by some beautiful ol FNQ-style trees. Healthy vibrant public spaces too

cheap ensuite for one night stay close to shops

Pros: convenient to main shopping area, cheap, clean ensuite room for the night
Cons: Security, as there were two men having a loud argument outside our room about 2am in the morning, felt unsafe
Location: Good cloths shops, pubs, restaurants, day trips, markets
It was okay for a one night stay, don't think we would stay again as we are over 60, where not young back packers
