Liked: The bar area was nice and the staff were pretty helpful/ friendly.

Disliked: Having been reviewed so well on Hostelbookers I was surprised to find that the hostel was so disappointing. "Free wifi" was confined to the communal area and barely worked even there, after paying for wifi I found it didn't work in my room. The 10 bed dorm was absolutely tiny to the extent that I couldn't actually get my backpack round the room to my bed and I then discovered an ant infestation on the brick wall by my bed (there were also ants in the bathroom). Also had a big issue with noise as the room was located (practically inside) the bathroom and so could hear not only all the drunk roommates coming in but things like the hand dryer going off throughout the night.

Liked: The Bar is that good that people come to the bar that are not even staying at the hostel. Great atmosphere within hostel and bar.

Liked: The hostel itself was very updated, it felt more like a hotel than hostels that Ive stayed before.

Disliked: Location was a bit far off CBD and the rooms can get a bit musky when its a full crowd because the bolted in windows.

Liked: Upbeat with lots of backpackers who want to chat and associate with others. This , I believe, develops from a trickle down effect because of the staff. A good first impression makes it easier for others to open themselves up.

Disliked: The dorm beds are quite squeaky... a simple maintenance on them (tightening the allen bolts) would help in the biggest way. The noise level around the place struggles a bit later on in the night/early morning as it's not patrolled upstairs... pretty much hostel life in general though. Dorms will always be a struggle but in general this place hits the nail on the head. Good place to stay.

Liked: Plug and light by each bed. Free breakfast. Clean rooms. Air con. Good size kitchen. Free wifi in communal areas.

Disliked: I stayed in an 8 bed dorm and there was only 1 toilet and 1 shower in the room which meant people were often queuing to use these. Our room was full of people who were living at the hostel whilst working here. This meant they were not interested in talking to us and made the room feel awkward. Not allowed own alcohol in the hostel, meaning a night out can get very expensive. Quite a walk to the city beach and shops.
