The atmosphere was not very good, staff was really nice though but the rooms were small and had not enough space to put your luggage somewhere where it does not bother anyone. Kitchen was average but no cuttleries and the facilities were poor. I really did not enjoy my stay there. Would not recommend it if you're into a little bit of space and a bit of comfort.

Very good location, only a short walk to the Queens St Mall. Friendly staff. Rooms okay, except for the airconditioning which you can't adjust. It was freezing so had to turn it off altogether which meant having no lights as well, as they are both operated with the same keycard. Kitchen doesn't have enough knives etc. - difficult to cook. You get a set of dishes for 10$ which is not enough to cook and you have to keep them in your room and carry it around which is annoying.

Very good location. The staff are very nice. The rooms are nothing special, but there is a living room and dining room quite spacious. Also the kitchen is well equipped. regarding the daily free pasta,... In recepcion they give you a bag or two bags of pasta that you have to cook it.

This was my first stay in a hostel and I found it a very cost effective accommodation option. Although I can't compare it to other hostels, I found this establishment to be safe, friendly and comfortable. If I travel through here again, I would certainly choose it again.

Too many beds in one room, so cramped, dark, no space, communal area is poor, about a 10 minute walk into the city centre and no places to eat close by other than the bar downstairs!

Really good location (2 mins from Greyhound, 10 mins from shops and 15 mins from lagoon).. clean rooms, kitchen felt like a sauna

The staff is really friendly and the atmosphere in the hostel is great, I made a lot of new friends there which is why I decided to stay longer. Although, there were some problems with the airco, but it seems as if that is fixed now. Our shower is generally really warm, having cold water is a luxury for which we have to go to the kitchen. If you share a dorm with 12 other people, one bathroom with a shower and a toilet is not enough. Also, the kitchen is really hot and you cant open windows...

The room was so hot, like unbearably hot. Bathrooms were okay decently clean but the roommates had all kinds of garbage everywhere and is wasent being cleaned by anyone.

Over past 4-5 years I stayed 10-12 times. Not always happy in the past. This time in 4bed dorm/bathroom clean withnew tiles/just the a/c blasted cold on my feet but I should have it adjusted myself! Coughing and sneezing occupants did not help to general wellbeing.

Excellent location and staff were very lovely and helpful but the bathroom was quite dirty which was disappointing.

I thought the location of this hostel was good, just across the bridge and your at Southbank which is a really nice/chilled area. They had a bar attached the Guilty Rogue which done good food and drinks, also you get 20% off all that, which is really good since I'm travelling and on a budget. One of the down sides to the hostel where the staff that worked there! Never that helpful, when asking a question or for directions I may aswell of been talking to the wall for all the reaction I got!

This hostel is decent. You can get a good nights sleep here (mattresses are comfortable and the place is not noisy). My 10 bed room had an ensuite and an air conditioning unit that you could turn on and off. The kitchen is large with plenty of chillers to storage your food in. The Guilty Rogue bar attached to the hostel is a nice touch as you get 20% off your food and drinks when you present your door swipe card when you make a purchase and means you can meet your outside friends there.

Hey there, I'm very happy to hear you have enjoyed your stay with us. Luckily our building was built to be sound proof and I do agree that it is one of our best features especially in a hostel. 20% off is a great discount for all of our guests, the Guilty Rogue is a great place to eat. Thanks again and safe travels :-)

Very noisy at night, room 21 has a constant mechanical noise, not sure if it is due to the functioning of the elevator There is a need for more electricity points Lovely towel and toiletries gift set on arrival Little engagement at reception about options to extend my stay
