Centrally located within in the heart of Victoria, so a great place to be if you want to close to its urban charms. Friendly committed staff!


Unlike what other reviews says there was no homeless and/or drunk people while we stayed at this hostel. Male dorm is 40 beds separated in blocks of 4 bunk beds. It can be noisy at night because of snoring people, etc. and at some occasions it smelt weed and alcohol.... Bathrooms are rather clean. Don't expect to have a lot of intimacy here. The staff was nice and helpful. However we didn't met a lot of people, and most of the customers were over 35-40 years old, which was quite weird for us..

I travelled for 3 weeks and stayed in 6 different hostels and this one was the best! Great for everything, the only exception was for the breakfast. It was very little and only between 7.30 and 8.30, but overall it was great!
