Apparently this was quite a grand house and it used to have gardens all around where the blocks of flats are either side and where Needle Park is on top of the underground carpark. Dorm 18 is probably the best dorm in the hostel...  top floor away from the noisy backpackers, only three bunk beds (due to the double bunk bed, so it still sleeps 8) and lots of windows, so it's lovely an bright and airy. Cool! My Dorm, Dorm 18 (for most of my stay in the Pink House).  Currently sleeping on my usuall top bunk on the left.
