One of the best hostels I've stayed in during my time in Oz. Purely because the staff are so relaxed. This creates a great atmosphere in the hostel. Other hostels I have stayed in have been really strict around petty things like deposits for a towel. Guys here have the right attitude and it really makes it a great place... More

I've been in this hostel for over 2 months now and I've had the best time of my life and met the most amazing people! The staff and the manager (Milka) are the most welcoming, friendly staff you could ask for in a hostel. The rooms are spacious and so chilled. The atmosphere in the games room every night is...

This hostel is by far my favourite so far, it's really social, the staff and guests are super friendly. The dorm rooms have their own kitchens and living spaces and the bunk beds are in a bedroom. Only downside is the 8 share rooms only have 1 bathroom to share.

The bathroom and bedroom were disgustingly dirty, the bathroom smelt of stale urine and the dirt and grime everywhere was awful. I cleaned the sink and shelf with some tissue which turned black. The kitchen and common room facilities were fine , but I would never return here and wouldn't want anyone else to. Complete let down and very poor... More

This hostel is appartment style, which is really nice, but that meant that our bathroom was sandy (from people wearing shoes) when we wanted to shower in the morning. Kitchenette was clean-ish, room had very old rug, the beds were unbelievably squeaky and there is no ladders for the top bunks. Trivia night was fun, staff was very nice and... More

Everything very old, cushions on bed were dirty, 'double' bed was two single beds together which really hurt when led ove the middle, under the bed needs a good clean too. Only real positive was the location and the staff who were nice.
