Feels secure and safe, very close to the free tram lines into and around the city. Very close to the queen Victoria markets which are very much worth a visit. The hotel offers everything you would require as listed and they keep the rooms very clean and fully serviced. Receptionists very helpful when you have questions or queries.

The passageway to the rooms upstairs has a few little hangout spots which are semi-open and though everyone's washing is hanging from the rails there is a fun and bohemian like atmosphere which is quiet enjoyed.

The rooms were clean and easy with a plug and light at each bunk and big lockers underneath the bunks. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm and found it quite spacious. Their location cannot be beat with the train station and federation square just across the street. Also the little street right beside the hostel has many cute cafes that are good for coffee, breakfast and dinner. It may be expensive but it is totally worth it!
