Alright for a few nights stay if you have things to do in Newtown
The rooms are dark but I did not spend the day in there only to sleep
All in all would stay again if had work again up there.
Nice happy staff
From the minute I walked threw the closed gates of this hostel it felt like a prison, I don't normally stay hostels but I thought for the price I'd give it a try for a few nights,sad to say I'd rather sleep in a box...More
Stayed in a 6 bed-dorm for a couple of nights. Staff mood is mixed, from friendly to almost ignoring (speaking to a friend on mobile was more important). Not much space in the room and quite run-down/ dirty, en-suite bathroom was surprisingly clean.
This hostel is very run down.. as soon as I walked into my room it stank of sweat and felt like I'd just walked into a dump. All the people in the room were long term workers so all there belongings were across the floor...More
Good location minutes from King Street, plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. The room was good and the ensuite was new. Front reception person was friendly and helpful.
Would stay there again if in the area.
