Great Themed Hostel
Great themed hostel where you get to stay in former cells. It is very well done with good communal areas and a well equipped kitchen. Rooms are obviously in former cells so they are not the most spacious but the hostel does make good use of the space. The isolation room, former cell and costumes with line up wall are all fun additions. If you like themed hostels then this is a must!

Great experience, some noise in the morning when people started to move around but gave you an insight into life on the inside. Very clean, great facilities. Loved the cells that were left as they were, the graffiti was interesting too.

Unique Hostel
The concept is very unique but room is abit small but what do you expect from a real historical jail cell right? Location was a 10mins drive to city centre or a 2.5km walk. They had bicycles for rental but wished it could be free though. Facilities included good workable Wifi, 24hours kitchen, tv room with netflix and such, lounge, laundry and dryer service at $2 and $4 respectively.
