I just stayed in Chilli's for one night and I wouldn't expand my stay there. The rooms were really clean and everybody had an own locker. It smelled disgusting in the different floors because all shoes stood outside and that wasn't nice. Another negative point was that you always had to pay 10 $ or give your key to reception to get anything like pots and dishes. Nothing was already in the kitchen upstairs and you always had to go up and down after and before cooking what was a bit irritating.


Awesome spot in the city. They don't have a bar or pool on site, but the sister hostel is just down the road leaving Chilli's nice and quiet at night for those who value their sleep. Clean kitchen and bathroom. Amazing staff who were always helpful and friendly

You won't get a better location than this, right in the heart of Mitchell street. We had a 4 bed dorm which was compact but manageable, the air con units are old and noisy but if you bring ear plugs you'll be fine! There are a lot of long term residents so it's hard to meet other back packers but depends whether you want to or not! Only real frustration was on our floor they closed off the showers and toilets for cleaning at 8am, when check out is 10am it's really inconvenient!!


was a well run hostel & suited our purposes well
