  • We booked for 2 people but upon arriving we had been placed in separate dorms. We were asked to wait for the manager to come in and fix this issue as apparently the girl working didn't know how. She said wait for 5 mins. An hour and a half later we were still waiting, the manager did other redundant things before helping us, was rude, accused us of forging signatures and didn't know how to change the receipt paper in an eftpos machine. All in all this took around 2 hours to sort out.

  • I had a one night stay, and the price for that night was good. But the place was a little bit old, the house creaked, you can listen the steps in the floor and the other floors, the voices from the closer rooms. The bed was confortable, but the sheets no. The shower has no hot water and wasn't too nice. The staff was great, nothing to say about them. There's a kitchen, but they don't serve breakfast. I don't felt very confortable and i didn't feel a hostel enviroment, but for one night was good.

  • Wonderful stay! Great location, service, cleanliness. I stayed in a private room, and it was probably the cleanest, nicest hostel room I've ever been in! For a non-youth (29) female traveling alone to a conference, this is the most affordable option that still provides some level of privacy and safety!

  • The service itself was not bad, yet the restrooms did not work properly and human excrement was to be found in the showers. I asked the hostel for a compensation, with no reply from their part. The rooms were very cold and not well isolated. All in all it is a very bad deal

  • I didn't use the kitchen and common room areas, just needed a room and bathroom as was in town for an event. No water pressure in shower, needed to put on tap in main bathroom area to get enough pressure to top floor. Light in bathroom blown and no one seamed to notice, no mirror in bedrooms so no it was difficult to get ready for my event. Perhaps this place is fine for backpackers in their early twenties who just want to meet other travelers but not much else.
