Great clean Hostel
It was a short but pleasant stay at the Habitat HQ. I had a lovely private room with everything you could need and it was at the back so very peaceful. Even though it could do with a new lick of paint it was very clean and comfortable. I would defiantly come back. The girls at reception were really friendly and welcoming.

Better then expected
Stayed here with my partner for a holiday and really enjoyed our stay. We got a double room with an ensuite on the third floor. The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom looked like it was recently renovated (nice and clean). Room had a tv, mini fridge, kettle and hair dryer; everything we needed and was better then what I was expecting for a hostel. Wasn’t noisy apart from the road traffic but having the window closed blocked out most of it. Close enough walk to everything you need but far enough away you can stay out of the hussel and bussel if you want. Would definitely stay here again for our next trip.

we booked a private room and thought there was free parking as we searched on their web and it says there is. however when we arrived we were told it's 4aud per night for parking. spent a long time arguing with the staff at the check in until one of them came and waive it off. room was freezing despite the heater being on. it takes a long time to heat up for a small room. the worst was that they off the heater in the middle of the night while we were still sleeping! when we woke up at 6am we were freezing!! hotel has a limit to the amount of free WiFi u can use. only limit to 500mb per person. additional will have to be purchased. the only thankful thing is that with the private room amenities like towels and hairdryer are provided for. if not it have to be purchased separately as well. when we arrived at night the lobby was filled with youngsters and seemed like a lot of fun. good for people who likes to mingle and make new friends.
