  • One word...dump. You get what you pay for- filthy bathrooms (looked like they haven't been cleaned in years), revolting kitchen (tip: wash your dishes before you use them) and washing machines hardly worked (many out of order). The worst hostel I've ever stayed in- it resembled an abandoned mental asylum. Surprisingly my bed linen was clean (but no mattress and pillow protectors?!). Beds were okay; though bring an eye mask as our twin room had no curtains. What a nightmare- avoid if you can!

  • We literally only checked in, went to the concert, came back to sleep and got up at 5:30am for a taxi to the airport. So we didn't use any facilities except for the bathroom which was clean. The lovely lady at reception changed our room for us, as when we got there the 12 bed room we were in had every bodies stuff everywhere.

  • The hostel was in very poor condition. The bathrooms were falling apart and had mould all the walls. There was graffiti all over too. I have traveled all over the east coast of Australia and this hostel was the worst I have ever stayed ine
