Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review about your stay. We do our best to maintain the beds and tighten when needed. I have checked all toilets and the windows are either boarded up or there is frosted glass to prevent from anyone seeing. But I will look into this further. I will pass on your comments to the staff member on that day of check in. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, safe travels for the future.
Cheap for a reason

Good Afternoon Linda, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review about your recent stay with us. We appreciate all feedback and believe there is always room for improvement where needed. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your overall stay with us and I will be sure to pass on your comments to our staff. I will speak with our cleaning staff in regards to the windows and have them cleaned as soon as possible. We are in the process of doing some maintenance and have noticed the panels in the windows which are on our list to get done. I'm unsure of what the smell could be, however, the floors are vacuumed everyday and shampooed every couple of months. There are several eatery's below our hostel which could be the reason there was a smell. I will be sure to look into it. Once again, that you for your review and we wish you all the best for your future travels. Kindest Regards,

Good location, but...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The WiFi is free and unlimted. We use 1GB vouchers that are accessible from reception and our night manager. The hostel is a older building split between two levels. Reception staff are always happy to help with bags. More facilities are available on each level of the hostel for all guests to use. There are a lot of doors on the floor and some of those rooms do have private ensuite bathrooms. Thank you from The Home Team
Not bad , save money.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. At check-in we provide guests going into dorm rooms with clean rolled sheets. On the bed is a mattress protector which at times is mistaken as a sheet. They are regularly washed and changed. The rooms are serviced daily by our cleaners and checked by reception staff. Private rooms are cleaned after guests leave and serviced daily. The common areas are cleaned every 2 hours from 730am-10pm. Reception is open 8am-8pm and a night manger on after hours to deal with any issues in the hostel or guest discomforts. Sorry your experience was not a pleasant one with us. We do have private room with en suite which may suit you next time. Thank you Home Backpackers Team
