Excellent4.0 / 5
Great location
Stay was great...didn't appreciate that once we were checked out we were no longer allowed to store our luggage unless we paid. Pretty silly to me. They also need to fix the air conditioning units (especially in room 121) we had to wake up every 10 minutes to keep turning it back on because it had an automatic shut off that we couldn't control or turn off. Very uncomfortable to have to keep waking up extremely hot.

Pleasantly surprised
I'm not a big fan of hostels but I was impressed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the place was cleaner than most hostels I've stayed at.

Location was good
The room was not small but shower was. In my opinion, it should be better that you put more shelves or hook in shower room.

There was no lockable luggage locker in the dorm I stayed in despite being advertised as having them.The dorm I was in was tiny and did not have sufficient space for luggage for the people in it. The wifi also didn't always work in the dorm despite having to pay for it. However the dorm was clean, the staff were friendly and the facilities were good.

Fair2.0 / 5
Wow....and I thought Spring Breakers were bad.
Like most X Base hostels in Australia, this one was concerned less about sleeping and more about partying. I don't know why, but they attract the worst kind of backpacker - loud, obnoxious, and with no regard for those trying to sleep. In my room, two groups of backpackers stayed up well past 2 AM playing YouTube videos, laughing, and drinking alcohol. If this is your scene, you'll love this place - if you're like me, and trying to get some rest before a 7 AM flight, pack some earplugs and a face mask. Staff were minimally helpful - when I addressed my concern about the lack of curfew, they replied "this is a hostel". You'd be better off staying at Nomads - a hostel that has a CURFEW to curb these behaviors obnoxious twentysomethings who obviously haven't learned manners from their parents. #Endrant
