Got what I paid for
Pros: the bar looked really fun (and 1000 times cleaner than the dorms), if I had more cash I would have spent more time there meeting my neighbours! Also the staff were really friendly...and there was a pool and very basic included breakfast every morning :) Cons: the place smelled like mildew, heaps of visible mold, my dorm barely fit the number of beds, my bunk swayed and creaked so much it woke me up every time I rolled over and I was legit scared it was gonna collapse and crush the person under me, and the ceiling light and very loud aircon unit were both within arm's reach of my bunk bed. I'm not particularly disappointed because it WAS super cheap, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it if you've got the cash to go elsewhere.

Staff stole my belongings!
When I left for the day, leaving all my luggage locked in the lockers and some things on and around my bed, I came back to find my things all taken from the bed. I first suspected that it was another hostel guest who had taken my things, but I wondered why someone would take an eye mask and used earplugs. It looked like housekeeping must have thought I left these items here after checking out. I went to the front desk and told them that the cleaning staff must have taken the items to Lost-and-Found so he led me to where they keep the things people leave behind. I found my scarf there but nothing else that belonged to me (including a $20 microfiber towel, phone charger and adapter). I have to assume that these items were stolen by the cleaning staff instead of being put in Lost-and-Found. The next day, leaving only my shoes near the bed, I come back at the end of the day and my shoes are gone. Again, I ask to look in Lost-and-Found but they are not there. The front desk staff said they would keep an eye out for my stolen items and did nothing else to compensate my loss. I assume they don’t tell the cleaning staff that guests stay longer than one night and should not steal the guest’s belongings! The rest of the hostel was okay, the bathroom shared in the dorm room was pretty clean. But paying for wi-fi was not ideal and the dinner specials were never the same as the posters advertised. Overall, would NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN and advise others to NOT STAY HERE!

Very disappointing
I was really looking forward to staying here but couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed. The reception area is so modern and clean and really gives off a fantastic impression. Unfortunately the room I stayed in was parallel to this. I was staying in a private double room which had an ensuite. I noticed right away there was an unusual smell, the light was very dim so I had to keep the bathroom door open to let in light, which also meant I could always hear the bathrooms noisy air con. There were hairs and crumbs all over the bed sheets and the ‘white’ towels were dull and covered in again hair and various stains. Parts of the bunk bed were snapped and broken and the furniture was all old and mismatched (not in the fashionable vintage way but in a we can’t afford to renovate way). Walking around the rest of the building everywhere seemed like it could be doing with an update. The area itself didn’t have much going on in the day time, meaning I had to travel far to see things I wanted to see, but the nightlife nearby was great. This was also the only hostel I stayed in that didn’t offer free WiFi. You got half an hour a day (something along those lines) for free then you had to pay if you wanted to keep using it for another 24 hours. Thankfully I didn’t have to spend a lot of time here as all the things I wanted to see meant I had to invest an entire day on being away from the hostel.

Nothing much to expect from a backpackers hotel, reception area was lively and vibrant.
