Disliked: Duvet covers are not fresh for each new guest. Would be great if they had free milk for tea and coffee

Liked: The staff were really welcoming, we had to wait to check in as we arrived at 10am but they seemed to make every effort to check us in as early as possible. They had a big room to chill in with ping pong, pool and lots of board games if you wanted. They also had a film night with a constant flow of free popcorn! Great free things to rent as well. The best part was the kitchen! It was huge and there was always more than enough space with free tea and coffee too! Only issue was that they only had one microwave but we never had to wait too long!

Disliked: It was quite far from Coles and Woolworths but there are free buses throughout the centre!

Liked: Large rooms, we were upgraded by the friendly man on reception. Large lockers in the rooms. Clean bathrooms with good showers. Warm.

Disliked: Nothing was happening in the winter months (went in May) and so it was really boring if you're travelling alone. Not the most sociable hostel. Expensive.
