Liked: Good location, not far from the CBD. Free breakfast was handy.

Disliked: the rooms were very small and there wasn't any room for luggage. Kitchen lacked ventilation so it was very smelly. Wasn't anything to do for people who didn't want to get drunk every night.

Liked: - Good location - One plug for every bed (in an 8 beds dorm)

Disliked: - Very noisy place because of the bar downstairs - Way too much ads yelled in the room by the staff for "discount" beverages / food in the bar - Just 2 lockers in a 8 beds dorm - Noisy beds - Very tiny dorm : you're forced to put your stuff on your bed if you don't want people to walk on it

Liked: The staff are absolutely amazing. So friendly and helpful, ended up in a difficult situation and they went above and beyond my expectations to help. Location is perfect. Awesome bar and outside area for socialising and organised events. E.g. pub crawl and sunday bbq.

Disliked: Rooms a little small.

Liked: Great place to meet lots of other travellers and make friends because of the bar and club attached to the hostel.

Disliked: Expensive for some things, not spotless but ok. Some of the staff were very rude and the rules of not taking alcohol into rooms makes a night out too expensive.

18 November 2013 Natasha would recommend this property

Liked: Privacy screens around the bunks were good and each bunk had its own power socket and cubby. Staff at reception were very helpful. Free breakfast was good. Loved the book exchange. Hostel was very safe. Very good value for money.

Disliked: Not enough communal chill out areas. There was the kitchen and TV area which were fantastic but you got thrown out at 10.30pm when the club upstairs got started as they wanted to shut the door through to the accomodation from the bar. Also no byo alcohol allowed in the kitchen so if you just wanted to have a few quiet beers and some conversation there is nowhere but the bar which is very loud. Also bouncers for club were very rude. We left our towels in the bar one afternoon and when we got back in the evening we went to get them and were told we had to go all the way around the building and in through the club door to get them. We explained that we just wanted to get our towels (which we could see from the door) but were basically told to sod off and go around. Eventually another (friendlier) bouncer let my friend in to get them. Only light bulb in bathroom was gone for several days before I asked for it to be replaced.( They did replace it when I asked though)

Liked: Very good all-you-can-eat-breakfast! Coffee and tea making facilities all day

Disliked: The kitchen had no aircon and you couldn't open the windows so it was very hot and smelly inside. My first room didn't had a window, but the 20-Dorm ( I hadn't thought this before!) was very nice and you had even more privacy than in the 10-bed-dorm). You are not allowed to drink alcohol inside and they do check the rooms, so hide alcohol on fridays and saturdays around 9 o' clock! Fortitude Vallley was described as a good party location, but we didn't found a lot of party there..
