Unfortunately a lot of traffic and drilling noise.. Staff were great. Atmosphere is something I don't really know because in only stayed for 1 night.

Locations is AMAZING! RIGHT in the CBD! The common room and kitchen are in the basement, so not many people really go there. Wifi doesn't work in rooms, just on main floor and basement. Place was awesome value but the bathrooms need an upgrade, there is no shelves or anything to put your stuff and the sinks are so tiny - and the shower stalls are so tiny as well. Keycard to get into everywhere so its definitely a secure place.

The staff & other travellers were very friendly,the kitchen & lounge area was very spacious & always kept spotlessly clean by the hard working staff.Had a ball & plan to visit again next year ! Very comfy place & it was handy being close to Bourke Street & Flinder's Street Station.

If you are looking for party, this can be your paradise! Very good to visit the city as well.

I told them on Friday night in advance that I wanted to leave earlier (Sun morning instead of Mon), but they wouldn't refund the last night. No refund policy when the place is empty means that you're there to steal money out of customers. You're not allowed to bring friends in the rooms. You must ask for permission to the reception and they can easily refuse to let your friends in, even for one hour. Most staff was very unfriendly. Chill out people!

My friend and I had booked a double room for the wknd, the room was freezing (around 12 degrees inside) no heating on at all. Very noisy - you heard everything from the street below and we were on the third floor! Plus noise from the bar downstairs (again still heard it clearly through 3 floors!) . Lack of atmosphere, only a cheap place to stay nothing else. Locations great. Not a typical hostel feeling, just a cheap place to crash for the night right in the city!
