Liked: The kitchen was extremely clean and well equipped. Free breakfast was also good too. Good location nearby quirky Chapel Street, which has a wide variety of alternative bars and restaurants and AMAZING vintage clothing stores. I would much prefer to stay in this part of town, in contrast to the CBD, which is actually quite boring and no different to any other standard city. Facilities in hostel all seemed quite modern. Shower was also excellent...not one of these drippy ones that you get in most hostels. Beds sooooooooooo comfy.

Disliked: Given that it is winter...the hostel can get rather chilly in the morning and at night (especially when somebody thinks it is a good idea to leave all the windows and doors open). Hostel was a little bit small for my taste, and not really much vibe going on between the other backpackers/ residents. The hostel could also do with having more of a staff presence incase you have any queries.

Liked: Its so close to chapel street, the main hubbub of nightlife, cheap eats and general cool places! The tram stops right at the end of the road so you can get into the centre no problems at all. It also has a really personal feel and the staff are always around for help!

Disliked: Nothing, it satisfied everything i needed.

Liked: A nice smaller hostel, free breakfast lasts till 11 and 12 on weekends, very helpful and friendly staff, cable tv, nice area

Disliked: Bathrooms not amazing, kitchen needs better chopping boards. Oh and a free food shelf in the kitchen would be good...

Liked: This hostel has a cosy feel to it and as it's relatively small it gives you the opportunity to get to know the rest of the guests quite quickly. The staff are friendly and more than willing to offer any advice. It's a short tram journey from the CBD and it is located next to Chapel St. which has many shops, restaurants, etc.

Disliked: If a guest wants to extend their stay at short notice then there is a possibility that they may have to change to another room/dorm. (Although this problem is more due to the short-term notice given by the guest rather than any fault of the staff).

Liked: Has character.Despite the rundown exterior and somewhat messy interior, the place is full of character, warm friendly people in the dorms made the whole experience a complete and engaging one. Will definitely miss the people I've met there.Plus, free brekkie!

Disliked: Could have been cleaner, but that's a personal preference. Bunk beds tend to squeak, but not much of a nuisance. Needs more laundry space for hanging clothes up.
