The staff is friendly. The room is quite dark and it gives people an impression of not clean. And there is no elevator so if your luggage is heavy, you have to be careful. But in general, I have enjoyed my stay here. =)


Many long term residents. Everyone friendly, including staff. Clear instructions. Security rate down because there were lockers in the rooms but no keys for them so no secure lockup. Could do with a second hanger or shelf in the showers.


Good place to stay if you're looking for a place to crash in for a couple days. Located close to Central Station and a short walk away from CBD. Facilities are reasonable clean, friendly staff. Nice lounge to hang around with TV etc. Free WiFi (running well) also a plus. All in all, a good deal.


I had a fantastic stay! The location is right next to the Central Railway station and multiple bus stops, perfect. They had strict noise rules (quiet after 10pm), which made getting a good night's sleep after partying on the town totally possible. Thanks for the great stay!


The staff are helpful and superb. i feel like home.

Mature fellow travellers made for enjoyable stay; it is a well run establishment.


Loved the location and the staff was amazing. The roof top patio was a great place to chill and have dinner. Very great value and much quieter than other hostels.

Only stayed one night..the room was good and more private not having to share with a lot of people. Free wifi was a plus. Showers were weird and made me feel unhygienic (shower, toilet in one) luckily I had thongs.
