Prince of Wales Backpacker Hostel
Equal parts pub and hostel
What we say:
Styled after an Australian corner pub, the Prince of Wales is equally popular for its cheap rooms and cheap pints. The bar and bathrooms are on the ground floor and the mixed dorm is above, so you may find yourself walking past customers while carrying a towel and toothbrush. Private rooms have a queen bed and TV, and share a bathroom between the three of them. The POW is a very friendly, very casual spot and you'll probably spend more time in the pub than the room. Rates include WiFi and a DIY breakfast of toast and eggs in the courtyard.

Let the good times roll
Would definitely recommend this as a good place to stay. The bar is a great way of meeting people - Ii met some locals and travellers alike. The couple of downsides: the toilets/showers are located the floor below the main dorm (which is actually one mega-dorm with dividers in between to divide it into '6-bed dorms'), and you have to cook your own breakfast in the morning, and also make your own bed!

Great place to stay - played some great music, charged cheap for good ozzy wine and the breakfast was cool in that you cooked your own eggs on a gas ring. Would recommend!
