  • Great staff. I love the architecture of the building: so much character. A real sense of comraderie with the people who stay here. Not as antiseptic as other newer hostels, but the the trade off is well worth it

  • The Internet cut out A LOT. Made it difficult to send even a simple email at times. Staff was friendly enough. Bathrooms and dorms were clean. The location was perfect - just a couple blocks from the cBD and next to Carlton Gardens. Would stay here again.

  • We stayed in a 12 person dorm, it was ok but some of the long term guests were very messy. The location was great, just a short walk to the CBD, and close to both the trams and trains. The staff were excellent, they were all very friendly and super helpful with anything you needed. The wifi didn't always work on the top floor but was fine on the ground level. Overall we had a good stay here.

  • In general was a good hostel. The rooms were clean and the stuff worries to keep them clean, excelent bathrooms, individual. The kitchen I think is small for the quantity of people who live in the hostel.

  • Some of the staff were excellent and very helpful while others were simply "ok". The bathrooms were very clean and moderate. My only issue was with security. The lockers are too small and virtually anyone has access to the key for the "bag lock up". Half the time the key is in on the counter and very easy for someone to grab and head to the lock up area and take whatever they want. I also realize most people aren't like that - it should be much harder for someone to steal your stuff if they are.

  • Good vibe, excellent kitchen, very clean, bar downstairs with cheap beer and wine. The staff is helpful and friendly. Quieter than staying in the CBD but still really close to everything. No free wifi but cafe next door does when open. Good for young travelers and especially solo.
