Frienz is in a great location. Right next to the park, right next to queens Street and opposite side of Victoria Street to the local countdown supermarket.
Nice hot showers, though bathrooms are constantly soaking wet on the floor. Cleaners like to 'mop' them each day and leave them VERY wet with no signage to warn. Otherwise the bathrooms are great and are probably the most modern thing in the hostel.
Kitchen is ok but always insanely busy in my experience over 4 or 5 days. The time of day did not make it any less busy.
It seems there are quite a few people staying there long term for work who seem to think this affords them priority over people staying for a few days. they seem to take over the kitchen and basically make it awkward for everyone else.
The rooms and beds are OK. Old and I need of refurb/painting. But it'll do.
Roof terrace is lovely.
