Liked: The property is located behind MQ University. As a first-time student, it is quite convenient to walk to MQ University. However, during the summer vacation period, many rooms in the 5 bedroom house are empty so you may be house-sharing with unknown strangers. Some of these ppl may check-in one night and leave the next morning, so do remember to lock your room. Room is generally clean with a hard mattress and a tough white bedsheet + single blanket and soft pillow. A big mirrored wardrobe holds just about any traveller's clothes. lots of power sockets help to ease the day because I found a mini-fan in house 109 and used it to circulate my room's air. Toilet is clean too and comes with the typical shampoo and conditioner but no soap. Toilet paper and tissue paper is all provided. Bus M41 is located at the bus-stop near Waterloo Park. Generally a safe place as there are young families in the Waterloo Park until 9pm.

Disliked: When I was sleeping, pest control opened my door and I woke up in a shock. There are no hangers in the wardrobe so do bring your own hangers. Kitchen comes with an electric kettle, water jug (filter enclosed), a much used toaster oven, Westinghouse fridge (empty) except for 2 bottles of probably expired fruit juices accompanying the fridge, oven, stove, cutlery, dishwashing liquid, sponge/scrub device, and an odd assortment of knives, chopper, spagetti-tool, thongs etc sitting together in the drawer. Iron and ironing board are located in the under-stairs storeroom behind the dining table together with some old shoes, old bags etc sharing space with a footsie net. There is a shortcut to the campus via Tralfagar square and Waterloo park. Try not to walk through the trees coz spider may drop on your hair. A common stairway is located behind the house so usually there is a one-way shortcut through the house's back door and out to the university grounds or MQ University Station or Macquarie Shopping Centre. For late check-out, your house access card may be disabled so do have a mobile phone at hand to call the residential advisor on the number given. I did request & was granted 730pm checkout but when I reached the house at 700pm, the house access card was disabled and i had to call the RA to drop by to open the door. It could be tricky for a tourist without a local pre-paid SIM card to make a call to the RA as accomodation office closes by 6pm i guess.

Liked: It is a very clean and calm property.

Disliked: This is not a "real" hostel. When you are traveling on your own and hope to get to know people I cannot recommend this hostel. Its far away from town and there is no train service after 10pm. So you have to leave town at around 9pm, often you need to take a cab for additional 10 Dollar. Please calculate the costs for taxis and trains before youre making your booking. I didnt have to pay a bond. The description how to find the place of the lady below was really helpful! Thanks for that! I ordered a taxi for 4am in the morning to get to the airport - there was no taxi arriving, I called the staff - he ordered me another one without saying that the taxi will wait at another street corner. At least I got to the airport quite in time - but could be less stressful with better help...
