very clean, good refrigeration, and cordial people. Stair tread edges are coming loose and could cause major injury if a fall takes place.
New wooden treads would be advisable to reduce liability.
Thank you for your kind words.
The stair tread edges has since been nailed, very thoroughly down.
A huge building perfect for a large hostel, but with size comes difficulty in maintaining a community atmosphere within it. Despite large guest numbers, hardly anybody spoke to anybody. The Wi-Fi only works in the main seating area and not in the girls' dormitories. The bathrooms were functional but could really do with either a huge clean and/or replacement of certain components too mouldy to clean. Perhaps sell small padlocks for lockers, too, as oppose to just renting them out?
Thank you for the feedback .
We are finding nowadays that with smart phones and laptops, people sit , isolated, and not speaking. We are trying to get people to engage in conversation and play some games. We do have music nights at the hostel, but I understand they are not for everyone.
Wi -fi has been a problem at Victoria, We are boosting the signal soon, I hope. The female toilets will be thoroughly cleaned this season.
And on a last note we do rent and sell locks at the front desk, I am sorry the option wasn't given to you.
While this hostel is a little old-fashioned compared to other city hostels, it is attractive and in a great location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean and well maintained and I felt safe. My only critique is the lack of electric outlets in the dorm.
