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.

Disliked: Not in the CBD, just a fair warning they have a descent shuttle service until about 7 PM, after that you're on your own to get home.

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.

Liked: It had a cool bar, tennis court, swimming pool and sauna which we used. The big night out bar crawl was good value for money, $30 for entry to 4 clubs, 4 free drinks, half price drinks all night and free bbq. They were really helpful about letting me swap rooms to be with mates. Shuttle bus to town until 10pm.

Disliked: There were roadworks outside which were noisy but they are everywhere in surfers at the moment. The location was a little out of town but only $15 for a cab back so not too bad. The hostel bar closed at 10pm - quite early i thought.
