The recently refurbished Haystack is a small, clean and relatively quiet hostel, with solid pine bunks and comfy new mattresses in 12-, nine- and three-bed dorms. There's a small kitchen and recreation area, and a laundry. The location is great, off the east end of Princes St and just two minutes' walk from the train and bus stations.
