Stayed in this hostel 3 nights. The guys at the reception were very nice and will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately the atmosphere is just weird with lots of people sort of living there and the common room is far from cosy due to the classroom lighting, the whole room just feels a bit cold and grey. Also free Wifi is a must nowadays as people will choose a hostel with free wifi over a hostel where you have to pay extra.


Great stay! Would definitely recommend it!


We spent a few nights here and found the location perfect for exploring the city. The room was clean and useable and the bathrooms seemed to be cleaned every day. The common areas are a little shabby but not at all run down. This is a great place for budget conscious travellers to stay. The staff were very nice too. Wifi was also really good.


i really liked this Hostel, very nice staff, good location.

One of my favourite hostels I've stayed at in Australia. The kitchen is well serviced and the manager on reception is incredibly polite and extremely helpful. Personal thanks to him for his excellent service. Beware a two dolla charge on card payments. Good atmosphere and great location for both town and the greyhound bus stop.
