You have what you paid!
It's cheap hostel in We End but you will get what you paid. Just don't expect much of $16 per night. At least you can have a car parking for free if you have one. There are 2 buildings of the hostel, White and Green, it seems the Green one is for the people who live there for ages but the White one is for new guests. But yeah seems most of people who staying in the hostel have been here a ages. *** the booking website said that you've already paid for the first night or what but the true is you've not. So you have to pay the whole amount on the spot. *** Once you show up and you feel not okay to stay just find the new one cause you can.

Cheap and a little nasty
The manager was very good and looked after us in regard to the price. The sheets and towels were clean though the rest of the building was a little dirty.

2/10 Poor

I booked this hostel due to the location and the recent reviews... IT WAS A MISTAKE. Upon check in the staff was rude and unfriendly, if I had realised I had not paid for it yet I would of went somewhere else. The way the hostel was upon entry was that bad. Upon checkin the guy was very pushy and the ‘rules’ are crazy. The wifi did not work while we were there. The sleeping: the mattresses are typical hostel and hard, however they are yellow. The pillows are stained and the blankets were so gross we did not use them. The room itself looked like it hadn’t been cleaned, ever. The bathrooms: RUN!! The mild that is around the floors, up the walls and on the wooden door to the bathroom makes you feel dirtier then when you went in. The entire time we were there, they were not cleaned once. It is a shame because they look like they have been redone but it is crazy. Besides the cleanliness, which is horrible and quite frankly gross and none existent, the noise is loud. With all the rules you’d expect them to enforce the quiet times which they don’t. Go across the street for cheaper and a MUCH BETTER experience. DO NOT GO HERE.
