Fantastic views from roof deck. Room had not been cleaned or serviced from previous customer. Bed not changed, bathroom dirty, rubbish bins full. Had to be moved to another room. Kitchen sinks were disgusting, full of food scraps. Very different from previous experiences at this YHA.

The view from the roof is amazing but the 4 bed dorm I stayed in was quite hot and stuffy - but it was January. Good facilities, activities and location.
