Breakfast was great, staff was really kind and helpful, bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable.
Maybe there were few bathrooms compared to the number of people.
Top choice breakfast, a great variety, very central location friendly staff very willing to help. Had an excellent time.
It might have just been me but i couldnt work out how to control temp. for the showers
The hostel is far more good than I imagined! It only took me 5 minute by walk from the train station to hostel. We have free wifi, free coffee and tea. There are lots of bathroom and toilets and they are clean. And the shopkeeper is very nice, always smile to us and even let me stay for an afternoon after i checked out.
The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, the hostel was extraordinarily clean. Breakfast was good, and the atmosphere and decor were extremely nice and comfortable. Location was also fantastic.
The bed was a little uncomfortable.
I was amazed at the quality of all the services provided at such a price. The bathrooms were nice and clean, the decor of the communal areas was delightful and the inclusive breakfast was wonderful. (Plus the day we arrived they had free ice cream!)
I found the bunk bed I slept on a little hard - but then my bed at home is far too soft so I largely blame this complete on the fragility of my weak spine.
The place is very clean comfortable and nice, hotel stuff is very helpfull, nice tv lounge, dining room, excellent kitchen, very good breakfast, free tee and coffee facilities. The only thing the room is not really big, it was 4 beds in my room and not alot space. . Buit very clean toilets and showers. Everything is new and clean. Free wi fi as well. So Would go back !
Free breakfast; excellent bathroom facilities for a backpackers.
just like a big family~ have free hot chocolate and cookies in evening
waiting a long time in morning to use the bathroom, a few bathrooms and too many people
Very good breakfast. Facilities are high average to a hostel and the location is very good for who wants to go shopping at Queen street..
I Felt more like I was in a mini hotel , the staff were amazingly friendly , I couldnt get over the beautiful kitchen and sitting room ! The bedrooms were so clean and comfortable , Same with the bathrooms , they were nicer than my own bathroom back home haha ! Also the garden was Lovely !! I never stayed in a hostel before but after staying here I will most definitely be only staying here from now on ! Overall experience was just Fantastic :)
Charlie and abi are friendly and hard working. They keep a spotless place with an excellent breakfast and amazing facilities for the price. The location is handy being just over the river from the millenium stadium and city centre. A lot of the other guests were interesting to get to know.
The drunken idiots that arrived in the dorm between four and five in the morning.
very homey and silence is observed.
Abby and Charlie are so nice. The breakfast is lovely there
Great location, with a warm and friendly staff and atmosphere. Nice breakfast (not a full english one - for a change). Simple and uncomplicated.
The owner-managers, Abi and Charlie, are superb hosts, the facilities were kept immaculate, the breakfast was outstanding. There were 3-4 types of breads, sweet roolw, cereals, fruit, fruit juices, tea, coffee and much more. It's a continental-style breakfast with as much as you want to eat. I highly recommend Riverside Backpackers Hostel to everyone.
