Central location but single female travellers may feel a little uneasy at night as I got the feeling that this is not the greatest area of town as there were a lot of "unusual" people on the street at night which would have made me very uncomfortable if I had not been getting car rides from friends - this is NOT a reflection on the Backpackers though. Staff were super friendly, really clean room and what I saw of rest of facilities in passing. I got upgraded to an ensuite room which was really nice surprise. Close to the bus terminal and the Centre Place Mall and Supermarket.

Dirty and run down. More of a boarding house than a travellers hostel. Bathrooms in a very poor state of cleanliness.

I really enjoyed the staff and the location was great the only thing I didn't really like was the overall cleaning as the floor in the room we were staying had black sticky stuff all over the floor the sheets were stained and the room smelt really bad.
