This very popular backpacker option has a good reputation, and deservedly so.

Rooms provide a top combination of low prices and good views. Rooms are reasonably spacious, with cable TV, cheerful bedding and basic bathrooms with shower or tub. Some comfortably sleep three so this is a good choice for a group. A dorm room is also available on the sixth floor with single beds, each with a locker. Better views can be had from the higher floors, but with no lift you need to be prepared for a trek – it's worth it, but stick to the fifth floor as the rooms on the sixth are a bit decrepit (excepting the dorm). There's plenty of outside balcony space from which to enjoy the view and catch up with old or new friends, although seating's in short supply. With no fireplaces, tile floors and less than adequate door and window insulation, we're betting it gets chilly in winter, so bring a jumper and woolly socks.
