  • It was hard to tell who worked here but the hostel itself was nice enough for a few days. The wifi was not very good and the kitchen was always crowed.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Finlay Jacks! The kitchen and lounge room are very spacious and well-decorated. The showers are clean and offer a lot of privacy, and the dorms are nice. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

  • Bathroom window which opened onto the back walkway of the hostel did not close properly. This obviously isn't good for privacy, plus it let in cold air at night. Apart from that though hostel room was really good.
