This is one of the best hostels we've ever been at the east coast! The staff is very friendly, free WiFi and the hostel was clean. We had a own fridge in our room and enough space for 2 huge backpacks. We will definetely stay again in this hostel!


The location is in a great place in the West End and you can walk to the South Bank (10 min) and city center (20 min). The rooms are clean and I stayed in the largest room so plenty of space. The small fridge in the room was an excellent addition too. Staff were friendly when they were around and there was free wifi. Security was lacking though. There are no lockers at all and the balcony door was rather flimsy. It also got really hot in the room with just a fan and no AC. Good stay overall.


Best hostel me and my friend have stayed in & we've been travelling 15 months!! Great location in the West End, really close to South Bank & CBD! This is a cosy, clean, secure & noise free hostel with great facilities! The kitchen/bathrooms are very clean, 2 ovens in the kitchen, tv & a sofa!! Rooms are very nice and beds have proper mattress!! The owner Patrick is amazing! So lovely and welcoming! Free (good) Wifi and would 100% be back again! -Thank you Patrick for our stay!


I had a really good time staying here and the owner Patrick was super nice. He gave us a fan for our room and because it was a bit old went out the next day and bought us a new one.


Great clean rooms, fantastic location, helpful staff


Location is good and convenience as restaurants and supermarkets are near by. Only one thing that Wifi connection is not good, otherwise great place to stay.
