I think that the review for this place is a little wrong as the dorm room was big as was the kitchen. The 10 bed dorm that I stayed in was so nice, with heaps of space, its own toilet and lockers. This place is one of my favourite places. The staff are so nice and wll go out of their way to help, and the beds are the most comfiest I have stayed on in a hostel. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped with everything you need, and there is even a cinema room and a pool room. It is also so clean. I LOVE JAIL! The only bad thing is that it is a little way (25 minute walk) from the centre, but it is really near a huge park and there are regular buses if you are feeling lazy. Not really a downside though in my opinion as it means that you don't get the city noise, so it is a much better stay.
