Broadway Hotel & Hostel
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
For those who have outgrown the no-frills backpacker experience but haven’t quite graduated to a full-service hotel, the hybrid Broadway Hotel & Hostel, which has been given a "boutique-style" makeover, fills the gap. On the ground floor, exposed brick, leather sofas and three large flat-screen TVs give the sprawling communal spaces a slick, urban veneer, but they still follow the traditional youth-hostel blueprint: TV room, shared kitchen, plus a computer area with eight credit card–operated terminals (if you have your own gadget, Wi-Fi is free). You won’t find six-bed set-ups here, though: The cheapest option, the small, basic "dormitory-style" rooms, jazzed up with striking color schemes, mass-produced art and ceiling fans (there’s AC in the summer too), accommodate a maximum of two in a bunkbed. The good-value "semi-private" rooms offer a queen bed or two doubles or twins, with luxuries such as down comforters, iPod docks and flat-screen TVs, but you’ll have to use the (well-scrubbed) shared bathrooms. Ensuite quarters are also available. Unlike most hostels, the Broadway provides free linens and towels, daily housekeeping service and 24-hour reception.
