Only one shower working, and the lights not working so had to shower in the dark. Kitchen smelly and moldy. Air con but no ventilation at all means everything is always damp. Had to ask a couple of times for bedding, which had stains on it when it came. Most kitchen facilities don't work, most annoying the stove tops. Left early. It's a shame as this hostel could be awesome if facilities and cleanliness sorted.

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. At the time we were retiling our showers and therefore was a lack of them available. The light was blown and has now been replaced. We have been working very hard to address the cleanliness issues and believe we are getting on top of it now. We have recently had all new vents installed to all rooms to address the dampness issues. All kitchen facilities are now in working order and all new bedding was purchased last Oct so we will be looking into the stains.


Staff was hungover and really not friendly, kitchen and bathrooms were dirty, during the night it's really loud, rooms are messy, Internet has decent speed but u reliable, overall run down and up for a renovation

I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. We have been working very hard to address the cleanliness issues and believe we are getting on top of it now. Our rooms are cleaned every day, and I would hope that all patrons make use of the storage facilities to keep their belongings tidy. Being in the heart of a vibrant city suburb means sometimes the music is loud, this is normally why people like to stay with us. Being under new ownership we are making a lot of changes to better our hostel.
