Liked: We only stayed for one night as a stop-over and didn't really spend much time at the hostel. But it has a great location, and I liked the fact they had free internet and breakfast. The restaurant had a really good atmosphere, so did the little bar in the back.

Disliked: The bathroom for the private double rooms was clean but a bit gritty, as in flaked paint etc. I don't expect more of a hostel, but I've had far better bathrooms elsewhere.

Liked: the location is good and you can get whatever you need around basically--there are shopping center at the back street, there is restaurants in the front street, there is beautiful water views around as well--not far away from beach.

Disliked: I did not expect the untidiess inside the room--I booked 6 girl shared room and well, honestly I did not really like it --the toilet and shower room is just too old and husk to me. I once booked a similarly priced room in Brisbane and it was quite ok--I mean bed sheets have been changed whenever the person left and toilet and shower room are kept clean and well lighted. But not here.

Liked: The ceiling fan.

Disliked: Accomodation was poor. Room was musty and cockroach in room. Bathroom was horrible and dirty - no glass on window so toilet was covered in rain water in addition to hole in roof over toilet. Building was not secure or locked overnight, so that I just had a flimsy internal door and lock between me and the "big bad world". Would not stay here again.

Liked: Good location on Gympie terrace so easy access to the river

Disliked: The bathrooms were dirty with very little privacy. The staff also had a huge attitude problem when it came to helping us check in and out in a timely fashion finding it better to perform other tasks such as smoking cigarettes first.

Liked: The free shuttle bus.

Disliked: The staff were not at all helpful and were quite rude to some other travelers. You have to pay a deposit for plates / dishes / cutlery which we weren't told on check in and when we found out the reception desk was closed. It seems they have a bit of a deal with the attached restaurant as this is one of the only places to eat in the surrounding area. The entrance / reception area is nice, but the rooms are about the worst we have stayed in over 11 months of travelling. The free breakfasts are not every day which was not stated.

21 May 2010

Liked: Very very cold! The hostel rooms have a metre of space between the wall and the ceiling so the noise from next door makes it like being in a 12 dorm and if people leave the entrance door open (which they do) then even if the dorm door is shut it's like being outside and with a really thin blanket it just isn't enough to be warm- it made me get a cold :(

Liked: Seemed v quiet when we were there, and is in quite a remote location. Generally good though - decent bar etc. It is annoying to have to pay a deposit for cutlery/crockery, but that seems pretty standard in this part of the world.

28 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Nice atmosphere, nice staff, lots of space to sit outside at night which was great. 24 hour internet access was very convenient (they also offer WiFi for the same rate), and the bar where you could also get pizza to eat was great. Only downside were the opening hours of the receptions, which were not convenient, and the fact that the kitchen was way too small for the amount of people staying in the hostel so it was overcrowded, and it did not have an oven.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
