Liked: Staff all great and really helpful as they have a great knowledge of the city. This was my first hostel in Australia and I found it a great place to meet new people. When it was bad weather staff went out of their way to arrange activities which was greatly appreciated. Free city walk was fun and a good way to get to know the city.

Disliked: Would have liked free or cheaper wifi as this was overpriced in my opinion. Kitchen area gets very busy and a bit messy duing peak times.

City break

21 February 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed in a private room here for a city break, rather than as backpackers, and found it was great for both. Bathrooms were clean, never had to queue for a shower, room was spacious and clean. Hostel staff were great, really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Bit of noise from other guests, but didn't bother us and is to be expected for a backpackers! The location wasn't actually that great.

Liked: The location is great! Probably the perfect hostel for young people interested in heavy partying.

Disliked: Having to pay for Internet access feels like traveling ten years back in time when compared to Europe (or Malaysia for that matter). A little like being charged extra for electricity. And of course you have to pay once for your smart phone, once for your laptop, and once for your iPad. Profit - for them! Also, the bathrooms are just clean enough so you can't really complain - but not cleaner.

Liked: Honestly, nothing. I dont like being treated like a 12 year old on a school trip.

Disliked: Everything! - The waiting for lifts, not being able to use stairs or get to another floor where my friend was on. The kitchen, not enough hobs or fridges (eggs got smashed coz people had to squash thier food bags in.) The TV area near the kitchen - have to go down lifts to start dvd, change volumn, etc. PS 10 min wait for lifts) Rooms kinda cleaned once per week. The bathrooms where disgusting. Loud announcement in your room at 10:30am - not good when hung over! I could hear the bar in the basement all through the night (gone 4am,) which is fine if your drinking down there but I couldnt afford to drink everynight for 10 nights over xmas and new year. The bar itself is strick, got told cant have anymore drinks becuase there was too many on the table (we had one each and 5 of us sharing one small table) No where to hang and chill and talk. All in all, hated it and spent most of my time at a friends hostel coz this one stressed me out!

Liked: was a very social hostel, lots of friends to be made and good if you travelling by yourself. the side bar is good value for food and happy hour you can get cheap drinks.

Disliked: Was very young! Dont go if you over 25. did remind me of an 18 year old party sometimes. I stayed in a 10 dorm so it was what to be expected... little sleep. i made some good friends there but would not stay longer than a few nights.
