Double private room was small, but warmed up fast with good heater. Also, bed and linen was good quality, with a warm doona. Water in shower was always hot. Cleaner comes in morning to clean everything, otherwise by the evening, the kitchen is pretty ordinary - quite messy. No staff in morning and evening, so if you are checking in early or late, make sure you arrange this previously, so you can get into the building - security is good. Aaron is friendly and helpful. It's in a great area too.

Thanks for posting your review. You stayed in our private Single room, as per your booking. Although this room has a double bed we charge it as a single because of the limited size. The new top of the line bed linen has received positive feedback from every guest. We always inform our guests to contact us via e-mail or phone if reception is not staffed. I hope you received your package in the mail in perfect condition! Aaron.


We did not enjoy this hostel.Staffed only for couple hours in morning and again afternoon.After 5.30pm,it was a free-for-all,with kitchen pots and pans in the sink,the communal areas strewn with empty bottles/cans/pizza boxes.My room overlooked the outside area at the side of the hostel and was very noisy at night,until 2.30am one notable night.Because there is no a/c,you needed to keep window open with a fan on,in order to sleep in the heat....Our room was ok,dull brown bedding.

Thanks for posting your review. Reception is staffed from 8:30am - 12:30pm and from 2-5pm. We do have a large rubbish bin as well as a recycling bin in the kitchen area, We also have many other rubbish bins located around the communal areas and every bedroom of the hostel. Back of Chapel is a very old building, We do our best to keep the rooms cool in the summer. We have upgraded to the top of the line bed sheets.
