free wifi but slow
The cost reflects the condition of the hostel, nothing fancy. Breakfast is simple toast and cereal. Wifi is slow but free. Hostel is very close to Southern Cross station and grocery stores and within walking distance of all tourist locations!

Excellent4.0 / 5
No wifi in the rooms and the hostel is quite aged and not maintained very well. Bathrooms didn't seem to be cleaned very often. I guess the greatest advantage of the place was its close proximity to Southern Cross station from which you can catch the airport bus.

The rooms are clean & tidy. Only the kitchen is a bit messy. Other than that it's ok if you are on a budget travel
