No lockers in room, bit cramped for space and weird smell in halls, pillows and mattress need to be changed, but good location and staff were so friendly and helpful that I would have no problem staying here again!

A little out of the way of the main city and south bank but not too bad. Coles opposite. Nice communal areas. Girls bathrooms were alright and had hairdriers. Air con was nice during the day but at night it got positively cold, but blankets available from reception

Nice place to stay : great spot (not far from the train station), clean, amazing view on the city (especially bi night). But the thing I liked the most there was the REALLY nice, friendly and welcoming staff : perfect ! !

Cool place but they make you pay for the internet after a half hour and the signal is terrible.

Chill is one of the best hostels I've stayed in, the staff are friendly and its byo so really social in the evenings. the movie room is great on rainy days and the walk into the town centre isn't too far. The only complaint I have is that the wifi is painfully slow even if you pay for it. Other than that I would highly recommend this hostel

The hostel was okay, but not more. The location is not bad, close to the Transit Centre and a short walk to the city centre. The room was very simple, nothing special. The bathroom was okay. From the rough you have a nice view. There was no WIFI in the room, only in the lounge and only for one hour free. 24 hour reception was good. You couldn't open any window, so it was kinda sticky in the morning, there was 24h air conditioning...

Great Staff. David is a very kind guy and knows a lot of pepole by name. Notice the hostel has over 100 rooms. The floor in the hallway smells a bit strange (feet etc). Bathrooms for ladies only which is very pleasent.

Stayed in a private twin and triple room but no lockers to keep valuables in, it appeared the room was not cleaned whilst we stayed there apart from bins emptied, the floor was grubby after 4 days, staff were friendly and place was generally quite clean. No freezer was another problem for us as we bought ice, overall a nice place to stay and would stay again but it's quite pricey

Gets an average cleanliness for whatever it was that took 15 bites out of me the first night. Used my bedbug sheet after that and escaped further attention. Other than that a great hostel. Good aircon that could not be turned off. Otherwise theres always some git that wants it off so as not to get a cold.

Amazing hostel! Very clean and modern. At check in, the really friendly man at reception offered us a private double room at the same price as the dorm room we had booked. We were also able to add a second night in the private room at the same cost as the dorm. Good location by the river. Excellent!

Outdoor terraces were great with coty views, pool table and tv areas. However rooms were very small, no lockers and the hostel was very warm. Wifi was an annoying login and logout service though not expensive. A bit of a walk to main city areas.

A bit out of the way. A 15 minute walk to get to anywhere really. Room was pretty basic with a noisy bed but was blessedly cool. TV room and kitchen areas were both pretty nice. Staff were generally nice and helpful but it sometimes took a while to actually speak to someone.

The hostel is quite nearby the Transit centre, so perfect for travelers. The space in the room is enough, so you have beds in it and a little space for your luggage, so when you have a bigger luggage it could be a little problem to place it in the room.If possible they upgrade you in a smaller room. And you have to bring your own plate and so on or you can hire it at the reception. WIFI is the first 30 min for free, after that against purchase. But it's a nice hostel, I can recommend it.

Stayed originally for a week extended my stay to 9 days. Over all a fab hostel rooms can't get a bit nippy at night with aircon constantly on. Movie room was a godsend as there has been loads of rain! Pool table is free although it needs a new que haha!! Staff are really friendly, vending machines with drinks and snacks. Only downside is having to pay for wifi and it doesn't work in the rooms Met some lovely people I would definitely stay at Chill and would recommend it to anybody. :)

Great hostel, within walking distance to city and very close to train and bus station, all facilities you need and nice rooftop terrace. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only downside, there is no free wifi and Internet is a rip off.

The staff were wonderful. From 3 games of chess, to the loan of Nick's personal laptop, they could not have made me feel more welcome. The "poor" rating for facilities is because the internet did not work and one computer had a virus warning. I also found the 4 bed female dorm very stuffy
