Love this hostel! Thick comfortable beds, good sized kitchens,pretty good wifi. Relaxing and fun hostel not a party hostel. Party at clubs orwhere ever and then come back chill out maxin relaxin.


Hostel is divided into different areas, each with their own kitchen etc, which was nice. Good little pool and sitting area out back. Not so good were the number of things which were broken and not fixed e.g. one toaster, kettle, tap, washroom in our block. Staff walkthroughs to check for problems would be a good idea esp as reception is not open at all times to report things - a blocked sink was not dealt with for best part of 24 hours.


Cheapest hostel we e stayed in along the east coast yet one of the best. Good internet, clean, well organised re food storage etc


I enjoy Globetrotters i have spent a couple weeks here over Christmas and again through out January. It's not a party Hostel if that's what you're looking for. However it can get pretty fun and its relaxing and a great many people travelling through. Met many cultures from Japanese to Korean to Germany to Netherlands to Brazil and so many more.


Staff were wonderful. I saw one walking around late which made me feel safe.

A relaxed and quiet place. We had a big room (for four) with a fan, free AC from 6 pm to 9 am and free wi-fi, The staff was also very helpful and nice! -The kitchen was rather dirty, beacouse some people just left everything ...


Had a really good time here, good location and well priced.


Can't believe how nice it is for just $14 a night. Clean showers, nice lounge with really decent sofas, clean kitchen area, solid wifi in the lounge & dorm. It's just a bit quiet though, but ok for chilling and relaxing. The rooms get hot at night (10 bed form did anyway). Some extra fans or aircon would be good.


The small office hours were a bit inconvenient.

Friendly staff, you have to pay for the air-condition...WTF?!


A tad run down especially some of the Kitchen and Bathroom facilities but generally a nice , quiet and affordable hostel. close enough to the city centre (but not too close :) ) was about a 10 minute walk along the Esplanade wich was lovely. We spent a few days on and off there and were able to leave the luggage locked in a cupboard which saved us from having to carry it around all the time
