Liked: Loved the free wifi. Easy to get a great nights sleep as it's in the quiet part of town. Comfy beds. Very clean. The hostel is a little out of town if you require something or want to go for some drinks but I guess if it was in the heart of the city you wouldn't get such a quiet place & great sleeps!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: bbb

Disliked: We had booked a double room, which was located to the reception area. It was extremely loud (people listening to loud music, people talking loudly, trucks passing by all night etc.). We kindly asked the staff if we could get another room but they said it was not possible because they were fully booked. People were checking in and out of the hostel all the time (and we were staying there for 5 days), so it seemed quite rude of the receptionists not to take our complain seriously.

Liked: Great atmosphere and people. Overall pretty clean, thick mattresses, pool. Quieter at night than other hostels for the most part.

Disliked: Horrible internet. Rarely works in the evenings which makes trip planning and job hunting incredibly difficult. No free lockers to secure valuables. A little far from the CBD.

Liked: I stayed at a female dorm, and I really liked that its so privat, though you live 8+ girls in the room. The bed is really nice and closed so you feel the privacy.. The room has its own kitchen and bathroom, really nice!

Disliked: The wifi can vary a bit in the rooms. Somewhere in room 6, there is no wifi to reach. The cleaning could be better, but it's still clean here, and for sure in the good end :)

Liked: It was quiet and clean. It was a lovely hostel with a nice grassy yard and swimming pool. Lots of kitchens and a nice big lounge room.

Disliked: The staff is not there that often, so if you run out of toilet paper at night or need a blanket or something... it is hard to get it after 8pm.
