Very Good 8.0 From 30 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable hostel with character
The beds were very comfortable and the dorm room very spacious. The facilities they provided were good - lots of cooking equipment, free oil and popcorn and even a drying rack in the bedroom. Some people complained about the bathroom and shower being on a different floor to the bedrooms, but personally I didn’t find this to be an issue as it was part of the character of the (beautiful) historic building. The location is perfect, just 1 minute from the botanic gardens and museum, the I-site less than 5 mins away and an awesome cafe across the road. It was also a nice quiet area, and the tram passing regularly gave it a nice touch adding to the character of the place!

Poor 2.0
Dirty and smelly
Dirty and unkept facilities. Location is helpful as it is infornt of the information centre and 10 minute walk from the stop where the airport bus can drop you off, close to the hospital.

The twin room i stayed in was very basic and carpark space limited. But the proximity to the main city attractions and tramway was unbeatable!
