Fair2.0 / 5
Would not stay there again
Lots of sloppy, loud, rude young people who didn't pick up after themselves. Floors in common rooms very dirty. Elevator dirty.

Unclean and far from all
Couples making out in our rooms and people with flu in our rooms.

Fair2.0 / 5
Cheap and friendly but not clean and tidy.
They hardly clean the room. More over in shared rooms there is hardly any privacy as I see couples making out with no consideration to others and sometimes people in the shared rooms have flu and is likely they we will get it from them too.

Fair2.0 / 5
It was the worst hostel which I've ever been in Australia, it was dirty, the staff were really rude and arrogant and very loud during the nights, they were really annoying especially at night. the refrigerator was really frustrating every time you have to look for your cool bag and finally i missed it. it was small in proportion of the population in hostel.

Good3.0 / 5
Great location. Average hostel.
Great location - 10 minute walk into city. Room standard for hostel - squeaky bed and wifi only downstairs. Building work on our floor so rubble in hallway and plans of wood everywhere. Bathrooms clean. Acceptable for a few nights but very basic and staff blasé
3 night trip with friends
