Good location in Newtown, bit of a distance from the centre though especially if you like walking. Mixed vibe in the hostel, a few long termers that aren't bothered that you exist...which is fine if you're okay with that! Was in a girls dorm, it was really messy and smelt. Male cleaner barged in to 'vacuum' it when I was about to get dressed. Bed was super comfy though. Bars and shops are cool around Newtown anyway and I tried to stay out more than stay in. All in all it's okay.

We had booked two nights in a six bed female dorm, upon arrival told there had been an issue with bookings and that we were being "upgraded" to a private room for the first night. However the private room was actually in a building next door that had the vibe and cleanliness of a shabby, musty motel. When we went back the next morning to check in the dorm we had booked, we were put into another private room - sheets were dirty, bathroom hadn't been cleaned once, old men staying there - avoid.

Hi there, thank you for your review. It's a shame to hear that you had not enjoyed your stay with us; our Terrace House - which houses our private rooms with shared bathrooms - is a high point that many guests choose given the cleanliness and space (3 bathrooms, kitchenette and a maximum of 11 private rooms). All communal bathrooms are cleaned 3 times a day. We accommodate people regardless of race, age or creed ; whether you're a first time traveller to a wise world wanderer, we do not discriminate. So why should you? Kind Regards, BG

To AC. Have to pay for WIFI (thats a complete slap in the face in my opinion). Alright location. Not central, but Newtown is a fun, young area, with lots of places to eat and drink. Staff arn't very chipper. Atmosphere is alright, but lots of long term people living there.
