Liked: My room (4 bed dorm) was at least clean.

Disliked: No expectation on behalf of other guests to respect certain hours as quiet hours. Not helped by a nightclub located in the basement. Bathrooms disgustingly dirty in the morning brought about by drunkenness I believe!!!

Liked: It has everything a hostel needs. Close to the CBD, good beds and all other facilities you might need. There is a nice bar downstairs which allows you to meet new people, but also for those wanting peace and quit and a lot of sightseeing it is a good place.

Disliked: It can be quite busy at times with busloads of new backpackers arriving.

Liked: Friendly staff, fuss free checkin and checkout. Location to major rail network and location is close to central everything.Value for money. The bar and cafe downstairs catered for budget travellers...

Disliked: If i was to complain about anything it would be no chair in room to sit on and it could have a few more power outlets, other than that all was fantastic for the price and location.

Liked: Great location, really close to Central Station and Chinatown. Good to have a laundry facility on each floor.

Disliked: The usual late night drunken noise you get in most hostels. The soundproofing isn't great in the rooms so you can hear pretty much everything that happens in the corridor. We'd a wifi hotspot right outside our room, so were subjected to other people's Skype calls at all hours. Music was quite loud at reception, which is a pain if you're trying to use Skype on the computers there. Kitchen and bathrooms could be a bit cleaner.
