Liked: Perfectly located in the city

Disliked: We were treated very badly when complaining for the reasoning of only having one plug socket in a four bedroom dorm. The receptionist on was more interested in talking to his friend then dealing with our simple request for an extension cable. We weren't even offered one for the next day when we went back. This should come with the price of the room.

Liked: Nothing other than the location

Disliked: Almost everything. The worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Booked an 8 bed mixed dorm which was expected except turned up to a door that said it was a 4 person dorm inside was 6 beds (3 bunks) then got told it was an 'unofficial' 8 bed where people didn't pay for beds they just slept on the floor. Room was filthy my bed sheets had been used and woke up early hours noise outside and inside the dorm and 2people on the floor. And it stank!

Liked: Love the fact that everyone helped each other. Staff were extremely helpful, and other guests too. Shared a room with 5 other people who were very friendly

Disliked: The only thing I can remember that I disliked was the smell of the room I was staying in. It seemed to smell of stale wee, but you couldn't smell anything after you'd stayed inside for a few minutes. The carpet needed to be changes, and maybe a coat of paint just to brighten the place up a little.

Liked: The location is just perfect & the building, even though it shows quite a bit of wear & tear, has plenty of charm and has been adapted really well.

Disliked: There was a constant hum from the air-con machinery outside the window on the upper floors, but you can get used to it.

Liked: Great location, in CBD and just a short walk to Queen Street Malls, the Botanical Gardens, opposite Central Station. I guess its quite cheap so you get what you pay for. Good value for money at Down Under Bar - cooked breakfast $7 and meals for $10.

Disliked: So noisy!! In every other hostel I've stayed out, its noisy but at least is quite after 12am/1am latest and corridors are usually patrolled or have security cameras. I had one of the worst night sleeps ever, people skate-boarding down the corridor at 5am!! What is worst is that you can hear into every room because there is a window/screen with holes in above every door! The kitchen is quite poorly equipped, had to wait often for cutlery and washing up is never done apart from by people who work there cleaning the kitchen! Need tougher rules like in other hostels!
