Liked: Location was ok

Disliked: The hostel provides cotton towels in the toilets but there is no place to hang them. They were mostly wet and laying somewhere, pretty unhygienic. The toilet doors were hard to lock. There is not enough room to sit in the common room. The crowd is mostly British, every night drinking at the common room and singing karaoke. Value for money is very poor

Liked: Super friendly and helpful staff, especially the mananger Tom was always ready for a chat or giving helpful information and travel tips. We had an awesome stay there and we were sad to leave!

Disliked: Honestly I don't thing there is anything to be improved about this place, having visited 37 different countries this is by far one of the best places I've stayed.

Liked: Hands down the best Hostel I`ve stayed in during my time in Australia. Super friendly staff! Cleaners spit shine the place from top to bottom day in day out. Awesome facilities and a great space to cook. Kitchen is never to crowded even at peak times. Events are held daily. Residents are kept under control so you don`t have any out of control drunks causing trouble. But the best and most important thing of all, the showers! They are amazing, perfect temperature, pressure and flexibility. Good job MM 10/10!!

Disliked: If I had to be really really picky. The only problem I found(if its a problem?) is that the kitchen is locked at night. So if you plan on coming home drunk and eating your left over pizza from the night before, make sure you take out some extra cash to get one on the way home :)
