Liked: Very central location.

Disliked: The showers were an absolute joke. You have to keep pressing the button every ten seconds for the water to continue to flow, I say flow, I should say blast. They blast high pressure water out what looks like a broken valve.Also the hostel had that horrible lack of personality that all base hostels have. Its like they converted old office blocks into hostels

Liked: Facilities were clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was close to all local amenties e.g supermarket and local milkbar. The Globe pub also provided a perfect venue to meet other backpackers with plenty of fun themed nights.

Disliked: Some of the matress's probably needed replacing. Maybe the introduction of a small lamp in rooms where there are no windows.

Liked: Great location, lots of help and resources for planning further travels, friendly and knowledgeable staff, decent rooms, very nice large kitchen/eating area, nice lounge to hang out in, movie rooms, computers for use, stocked vending machines and food available.

Disliked: Not a fan of the push showers, but at least they were warm! They advertised a fridge in every room but my dorm was lacking one - the kitchen fridge was just fine, however.

Liked: Easy to get to. Seemed popular withbyiung travellers. Even though it was busy I felt pretty safe.

Disliked: Top bunk beds next to the window didnt have a barrier and if i rolled towards the window i would have fallen out the side of the bed onto the ledge. It didnt feel very secure!
