Shower kept going from really hot to really cold was not enjoyable. Yucky bugs came out at night all over our room floor

Me and my friend were very overwhelmed when we checked into the hostel to find the majority of people had been staying there for months, and the room was so messy as most of the girls had 'moved in' there. One of the girls came in after a night out and went through my bag and wore one of my dresses, and I felt very uncomfortable leaving my stuff out after that. All in all I felt like this was less of a backpackers and more of a rental property where we felt very unwelcome. I would not stay again

The communical kitchens were filthy. There were signs everywhere about the various rules of the hostel - most threatening eviction for bad behaviour. I have seen this in other hostels but never so many for such a wide variety of issues. Some even said no alcohol allowed - but a huge number of guests openly drank every night in the courtyard - so I guess some rules were more enforced than others??


Excellent to have plenty of fresh air in room, something that was completely denied me the next week while staying in Brisbane.


It was awesome place with good people.
