Backpackers Central Hamilton is a great choice for a stay in Hamilton. Free perks include WiFi, self parking, and continental breakfast daily between 7:30 AM and 9 AM.
Pros: Affordable, large open area with lounge and kitchen, private parking lot, safe and secured building, located right in the heart of the city, two computers available for use Cons: Rooms were small and tight. The place had a funky odor, not sure if it's because the floors were carpeted. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable as to where to park in the lot so I was worried about getting a citation or towed.
