Lovely, clean room. Kitchen not massive for such a big hostel so was crowded a lot but just work around the busy times! Helpful staff, no lockers in the rooms though but wasn't a major issue. Slept well, easily accessible from the transit centre and from the airport. Would recommend :)

Nice rooftop and pool. Very annoying having to pay $10 deposit for crockery + no ladder on top bunk

Rooms were okay. The pub on the roof is pretty good and reasonable priced. The food is pretty average but very cheap. Good views from the roof.

Awesome, laid back atmosphere. Loved having a bar right in the hostel, and the patio offered a great view of the city. It was close to a few bars and restaurants, though something closer to the valley might offer more selection. Wifi didn't work in the room, which wasn't great, but overall it was a good experience.

Lots to do! I was only here for one night so i didn't get to experience the hostel a lot. Theres a bunch of outdoor seating, a pool, and several little hang out places. The kitchen felt dirty because it is such a large hostel with so many people. The bathrooms were decently clean. You could hear music all the time so if you want a quiet hostel this isn't your place.

Really cheap, and got an upgrade to a private room for the 4 of us which was very good value for money. Pool and outside area had a great view. Not in a great location, quite far from main clubs and bars but could walk/cycle to the south bank and lagoons. Room was clean but top bunks had no ladders or barriers? Cheap drinks and food at the bar. Would probably stay again.

Really nice outside area - bar, pool, great views! The location is a little out from the city but not too far. I liked that the 14 bed girls' dorm had 2 toilets and 2 showers rather than sharing one ensuite like other hostels we've been in. It was the heat in the rooms that let this place down. We were looking for somewhere to stay long term and this would've been a great option but couldn't get a decent night's sleep because of the heat. Also no byo which is annoying.
