Stayed here for 3nights with my boyfriend. Wasn't sure what to expect from previous reviews but don't be fooled, it's a good place to stay! People are friendly, big clean kitchen and chill out area, free pool! Nothing negative to say about it. Enjoy

I enjoyed my stay here. It seemed as though most people in the hostel had known each other for a while and that many were living there while on work holiday. The common area was pretty good and it had a great kitchen as well. There are restaurants and a bars in the vicinity but you must be willing to walk a few blocks. The staff were nice and accomodating. Security was adequate. Cameras everywhere with big lockers for travelers.

Had an absolutely fantastic stay, everywhere was so clean, all the staff were brilliant and had a laugh, rooms were very spacious plenty of people hanging about during the day to make friends with, and only a 10 min walk into the city centre, 5 mins to all the Northbridge bars too! Would definitely stop again and recommend to others, cheers Spinner !

Even though the reception was supposed to be open 24 hours, we were met with closed doors upon late arrival. Needed to call a local number and felt that we disturbed the night guard. Strange "smoke room" in the backyard. Quite dirty and security was poor. We forgot a jacket, and when we arrived to pick it up we just got right back in the room without any notice. Didn't felt staff had customer service feeling, although the owner was a really good man and helped us with partly cancellation.

Rasmus thank you for your comments. Reception is 24 hours however after 6 pm guests require a key to get in the front door As your arrival was at midnight there is a number to call and the night manager will attend to your needs. We are extremely security conscious hence our security cameras throughout the building. Enjoy the rest of your travels Cheers Spinner

This place is awesome! Stayed for 4 nights and wished we could stay longer. The staff is extremely helpful and they clean every day which makes the hostel the cleanest we´ve ever stayed at. Lots of long-term guests stay here which gives the hostel a homely and friendly feeling. City centre is only a 15 minute walk away and there are nice cafés and parks close to the hostel. Would definitely stay here again :)

Very clean hostel, a big locker for each backpack in your room and your own, small shelf for food in the kitchen. The owner was really nice and helpful, only the cleaner was kind of strange. I would definitely go back there and recommend it to everyone!

The atmosphere is very laidback and many of the people stay for a longer time so you feel a little bit like at home after a while. It's a more quiet and small hostel but you can get a good sleep and if you want to party you can go to the nearby Northbridge pub and club district. It's not right in the city center but if you take the free shuttlebus you are there in 15 minutes. And I also appreciated that it was quite clean for a hostel! I enjoyed my stay there, thank you guys!

Great hostel, especially if you're staying a while as most people staying are on working holiday visas, the common area is very social and the staff go out of their way to be friendly and make sure you're looked after. The location is a bit out of the if you don't mind a 5-10min walk you're easily in Northbridge and 5mins on from that is the CBD.

I cant knock this place. Simply the cleanest place I've stayed in and ive stayed in a lot of places around the world. A good location just a few minutes walk from all the clubs and he city center. Pretty chilled out place with rules actually enforce. You will get a good nights sleep here, no problem. Quite a few long term stayers working everyday which means the hostel is quiet in the weekdays and it comes alive on the weekends. A room out the back where you can bring your own booze and chill.
