Rooms were big and spacious. There are lockers but signs reporting not to use them. You can keep valuables in reception but it's not locked. Internet was slow and reset a lot and it DOES NOT work in the rooms, only in lounge area. I'm pretty sure only the floors are cleaned in the bathroom at there was moss growing in the shower and the toilet seats were crusty. The walls in the room were filthy, who knows what was smeared all over. I had heard good reviews and was sorely disappointed.

Only stayed one night but wasn't bad at all, excellent location, TV room was good, everything relatively clean however if you're looking for nightlife in the hostel there is no bar and not much happening entertainment wise. Despite that can't complain had a good stay.

Fantastic location, near Flinders St station, CBD, shops,river, Fed Square, public transport, within free tram zone. The 6 bed dorm had plenty of storage/shelving. Great hostel that doesn't pack you in like sardines. Maybe wall hooks in the dorms wouldn't go amiss? Safe secure location. Swipe card for entry. Kitchen can get busy at mealtimes, occasionally people forget to clean up after themselves, lots of fridge space. Awesome roof top. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The kitchen area and dining area gets dirty too quickly and is disgusting to sit at, especially later in the night after dinner. They need to be cleaned more often. The rooms are fine, though the lighting can be a problem when someone leaves their bed light on disrupting sleep.Location is great.

Thank you so much for the great days in your hostel! I really enjoyed the free walking tour and the time in the kitchen and common space. I met some nice people there and I really liked that atmosphere, I didn't want to move into my new share house.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, great extras such as walking tours, free dinners, movie room and rooftop terrace. Only minor complaints were no window, however it is understandable in that location which also makes up for it. Also as we had a room directly across from the bathroom it was quite noisy and we had to go and turn the showers off tightly to stop the dripping. Given everything else though, these are minor issues.

Fantastic staff, social atmosphere and value for money. The rooms were also very nicely sized - it was good to not see beds crammed in! The bathrooms felt a bit dated, and both the kitchen and bathrooms never seemed to be as clean as they could have been. There was a lack of space in the kitchen as well. Overall a fantastic stay!
