Typical backpacker fare
Tracks is located right next door to Nomads, and is decked out in the same unmistakable red as its sister hostels Nomads and Three House.
It's pretty much the same as the others but has fewer choices of rooms than Nomads (but the same choice as Three House).
The dorm and the private rooms are a good size but the walls are a bit on the thin side, so bring your ear plugs and as with Nomads, we were suspicious of what the noise volume at weekends coming from the karaoke bar below might be like. All rooms have shared bathroom facilities.
As with the others, there are DVDs galore to borrow and a good size TV in the communal area. Each floor has a kitchen and balcony area to smoke out of. We found the showers on the middle floors a bit weak.
Do note that Tracks, Three House and Nomad are all owned by the same people and as such, prices among the three are the same and if one place happens to be full, they will often put you in another.
