Liked: The 'common room' was a very lively place that allowed me to meet other people and the bar garden was a great place to get cheap beer and Guinness with music. Good facilities and breakfasts. Helpful staff and rooms with key card access only.

Disliked: Some rooms are adjacent to a tram line that makes quite a bit of noise until 11pm and starts again at around 7am, so can be quite annoying.

Liked: Central, friendly, have a good meeting room and had a nice barbeque. Good value

Disliked: No lockers in rooms, a very loud young crowd doing party at the floors in front of the room in 3rd floor waked all up. Nobody cared about that and it lasted long.

Liked: Large hostel with some character. Rooms were relatively noisy as it is a happening neighbourhood.

Disliked: Housekeepers cleaned room and removed items whilst cleaning my bed. But fortunately they were recorded and stored in lost properly.

Liked: It was a pretty good location, only a few minutes walk from the center of town

Disliked: They didn't wash the doona covers. We watched them just remake the bed without washing them for new people to sleep in and also the kitchen wasn't very clean.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the cheap beer in the beer garden, great atmosphere and easy to meet people. The hostel also organises events like BBQ, walking tour and pub crawl. Nice, clean rooms, late checkout too.

Disliked: Breakfast finishes at 9:30, too early! And the showers are like prison showers; you have to push the button on the shower every 5 seconds, water flows from the top to bottom and there is nowhere to put your things. No lockers at all!
