Liked: Very quiet, we stayed in an annex of just four double/triple rooms which overlooked the pool. When the kettle blew a fuse the owner came in on day off and gave us their personal kettle after staff fixed the problem.

Disliked: Possibly could have had extra toilet and shower between the rooms, though as the annex wasn't full it wasn't an issue

Liked: Pretty small hostel in a silent corner of the city, no party but good if you want to relax and get some sleep. You can reach the city in a 10 min walk, Southbank, Beach and Library in 15 min. Supermarket also nearby.

Disliked: It is really small, just 6 or 7 other backpackers stayed with me there, no real feeling of community. Wifi cost 5$ a day and there's no real opportunity to find a job. Also the staff wasn't very helpful and nice, no 24 hour reception. I just used it for my first three days to get over my jetlag, so it was okay.

Liked: Very clean and tidy. Fridges and lockers in rooms. Enough showers for everyone. TVs upstairs and down. The place has a shared house feel. Quiet at night so you can sleep. There is a coles round the corner but CBD is bout 20 mins walk. Also the girls that work here are cool.

Disliked: Dont really like that you cant sit in the garden after 10pm but its better for everyone else. Its in a residential street.

Liked: Lovely hostel at great value. Felt more like a cosy roomshare than a hostel.

Disliked: Wifi costs $5 a day or $20 a week. It's really slow and the connection is bad in the common room of the private rooms and non-existant in the private rooms - not okay.

Liked: The double bed room was nice, the bed was very comfortable and the rooms very clean. The location is good, Coles and the city can be reached within 20 minutes. Equipment of kitchen is OK, but there are only two cooking plates for ten people.

Disliked: The staff is unfriendly and seems not to be happy. There are rules everywhere in the hostel which create an uncomfortable atmosphere. The communal kitchen is way to small and the yard of the hostel is dirty and not very lovely. Generally, the hostel lacks enthusiasm and love for what they do.

Liked: Nice building, but honestly: whatever :). The longterm guests were really nice and created a very relaxed atmosphere. Facilities OK (I like that you get a fridge in your dorm). Nice outside space. Didn't try the pool, but seemed nice. Good washing machine and dryer, which is exceptional, compared with other hostels. Also a funny possum visiting each night.

Disliked: It's not a big building: you live closely with the other guests (which is OK) and the staff (less OK). The staff, female backpackers, living closely with you, and constantly hang around at all the facilities, but forget to do the most important thing: make you feel welcome. And please, this really is a youth hostel: families or mature people: be aware of that :) ! You live close with them, so if you can't handle that, it is not the right place for you. A lot of "House rules", and you have to be quiet at 10pm. Also: kitchen closes at 9pm... sharp... a bit early maybe.
