22 June 2010 Ryan would recommend this property

Liked: The free internet access was fast and unlimited, which is rare in Australia. That was my main reason for staying here. The location is pretty good, a bit away from the main drag so it's quiet, but an easy walk to everything.

Disliked: Ryan left no negative feedback.

22 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Overall, this hostel had a very comfortable atmosphere and was clean. It has good wii fii, a nice kitchen, and is quiet at night. The only negative is the mattresses--they are very old and need to be changed. In the double beds, you definitely sink down in the middle making it uncomfortable to sleep. This happened to us in both rooms (we stayed here two different times). I would recommend this hostel, but opt for single beds, not the double ones.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Overall, this is a great place to stay. There ia a tv and fridge in each room and the internet is great! The only bad part was in the first room we had (we stayed here twice) the mattress was a bit broken and we had to move it onto the floor in order to sleep. The second time we came, we did not have this problem. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.
