Free pancakes and tea and coffee is fantastic. staff were honest, helpful and friendly. The hostel was clean but the old lino in the kitchen makes it look dirty. Could do with getting a bit of air and light through it but it was too cold to open the door and windows with winter. Location is great easy to find and near the central markets a few minutes walk into town and cafes, bars and restaurants around. Cool dining area with festival posters all around, where can meet other travellers.


We would definitely stay at Sunny's again. The staff was fantastic! They were friendly and loved to chat about where you had been and where you were going. They even made pancakes for breakfast each morning! Beds a little firm, but rooms and bathrooms clean. There was only one toilet and shower for the girls (maybe others upstairs?). Kitchen was small, but tidy; plenty of tables in the common area. Good free wi-fi. The location is great - Central Market and bus station are very close.


all good but could do with lockers and it was a little cold


I stayed in 6 beds female dorm. The bathroom was really small(there are no space to put or hang something, have to put on the floor outside bathroom) and it was no bathroom door, it was just plastic curtain.


Right next to the bus station which is the reason why I booked it in the first place. The common room (or kitchen) was pretty good. The receptionist was also quite nice. As usual across Aus there was a vast majority of long termers staying there. IDid the job, not sure I would have stayed longer than one night.


Very nice hostel with free pancakes in the morning, wifi, clean facilities and overwhelming nice and friendly staff.


Its not a nice hostel. The beds are very bad, I couldnt sleep a minute. Hard and broken in the middle, so you slept at the wood. The linen of the beds were also very disguesting. There was no security, no lockers and doors were open every time except the front door to the hostel. The facilities were okey, but we couldnt stay there longer because the other things have been so bad.
