Liked: Staff were lovely and helpful. Location was okay, near the beach and around 20 minutes walk from the centre. Free shuttle bus to the transit centre was good. Organised activities made it easy to meet people.

Disliked: No lockers. Room didn't feel particularly safe. Amenities, kitchen etc are very basic. Bathroom wasn't clean and there was no soap. No air on just a fan so really warm in a room of six people.

Liked: the location is metres away from a patrolled beach and a short walk away from the city centre. They also have a free shuttle bus into town if you'd rather not walk.

Disliked: There is no outside liquor allowed. You have to buy it from them. The hot water in the shower of my hostel room didn't work.

Liked: Fantastic hostel! Coming from someone who avoids staying at hostels, the hostel was clean and had all the essentials. Sushi train, coles, pizza hut and a bottle shop were in a 2 the minute walking radius and the free shuttle to town was great (though the walk was only 10-15 minutes). The beach is a block away and backpackers night out was huge value for money and a great way to meet people. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The pool was clean and inviting, so was the volleyball court and basketball hoop. Definitely stay at this hostel if you're in surfers! (wifi turns off at 10pm which was great as everyone actually interacted, unlike so many other hostels...)

Disliked: It did get a bit hot in the rooms (6 dorm) with just the fan, but the pool was right outside anyway :)

Liked: I really loved the infrastructure of the place how it got everyone mingling with each other. Rooms near each other, volleyball court right infront with tables nearby to enforce cohesion. It's really perfect for backpackers looking to make new friends. It's amazingly, really.

Disliked: NTH REALLY ! It's perfect. Okay maybe just the wifi which was smth u can't really depend on.

Liked: Free laundry. No schoollies policy. Lots of free games/stuff to do.

Disliked: Building site right outside the bedroom window was very noisy. Not exactly in the hostels control but had obviously been going on for some time so it would have been nice to be told beforehand. Key deposit was quite a lot compared to some other places we've stayed.

Liked: Fantastic facilities with lots of things to do, including Sauna, Bar, Swimming Pool, Pool table, Kitchen and lots of sports activities including tennis, basketball and volleyball. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, I felt right at home when I arrived. The living facilities were cleaned every morning and you were given fresh linen when you arrived, they also had a laundry room with a free washing machine, tumble driers cost $3. They also ran a free shuttle every hour to town, which was really useful when you needed to do a food shop. Internet was free as well. Absolutely fantastic location and I would recommend it to anyone just for the atmosphere of the place let alone the facilities.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing, I loved this hostel so much!!! I can't wait to go back!

Liked: Friendly staff, descent kitchen although you have to pay a deposit for cutlery and bowls.

Liked: Smaller hostel with friendly backpackers and staff. Hostel arranges nightly activity such as pub crawl, bar or club night with free entry and free drink. Glad staff mingles and goes out with guests as they are on holiday as well. Hostel have free wifi. Glad I choose hostel over others. Book this hostel, you won't be disappointed.

Disliked: Little far from city center but hostel offers shuttles every hour.
