Very odd and peculiar layout with the TV/social area in between the reception and the bathrooms this made for a very awkward and uncomfortable journey when going to bathroom as you had to walk past a full audience of people who could help but watch you the entire way through to the bathroom, my friend was also attacked by the hostel cat when trying to give it a cuddle and feed it some of those wine gum snakes.

Putting locks on each dorm room would be nice for security. And the arrow outside that says reception. Could also put the wprd upstairs. It would make it easier so travelers to understand. The arrow makes me think it's in the next building now that door.

The hostel is central to the Octagon and close to many shops. The environment was decent- it's weird that you have to walk in front of the TV to get to the bathrooms. I felt a bit odd when I forgot some toiletries crossing in front of the TV first on my way to the bathroom, then to go back to my room and then to go back to the bathroom. I could feel every spring in the mattress. The wifi was the best, didn't have a single problem connecting or using my entire stay.

Great location, within easy walking distance of both the main bus stop and the train station. Very clean place, very quiet internally, with lots of relevant help planning and reserving activities. Location on one of the main loops in the city meant that there was street noise that couldn't be avoided without closing the windows, which made the room stuffy when we were all in it.

My only complaint was the number of toilets for the hostel. Only 2 in the entire place. It's not fun when you wake up and need to go and you have to wait 15 minutes. Otherwise everything else was great. I loved the cat, the rooms the kitchen. Everything but the lack of toilets.

I stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm which was quite spacious. The beds were fine, however, nothing special. The shared bathroom was mostly clean but only 3 showers and 2 toilets - surprisingly never had to wait though. Lounge area was nice but not really big considering the amount of people who (could) stay in the hostel. Many good movies to choose which was excellent! Kitchen was alright but no window. Staff was nice and helpful. Would stay there again because of the good atmosphere!

they don't have room key, it means that it cannot be locked about door. However, there are some lockers in the room. location is very good very close to octagon and george st. they don't have car park. additionally, alchole is not permitted at the hostel for everywhere even kitchen or living area. it was very not good for me!! staff is very kind.(the reception woman) and gizmo is so cute. cleanliness is not too bad. good facilities (movies)
