Under New Management.
Our hostel is in an iconic building built in the 1950s and unfortunately is showing its age, but thanks to new management, it is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and getting the upgrade it deserves! The property will be 'refreshed' from top to bottom and we thank guests for their patience and understanding during this process - we know it will be worth the wait!
Beds from only $20.00! While rooms wait for their upgrade we have reduced their rates, starting from as little as $20 per night for a dorm bed!
Beds-over-a- Bar $18 Special! But wait there’s more - if you can sleep through a rock concert, we have slashed rates even more? Grab a Bed-over-a- bar on Thursday – Saturday night and your free earplugs for just $18.00! Guests in these rooms will experience noise disturbance from the downstairs bar particularly on late nights Thursday to Saturday, 12:00 pm check-out applies to some rooms, as it is a separate business we are unable to regulate the music levels.
