the place had an overpowering smell to it. I guess that's why they call it the 'funk' house
reception are very helpful and friendly! rooms are a little cramped and showers arent so nice... great location and awesome rooftop hangout spot. free wifi is amazing and i didnt try the free breakfest but thats also pretty cool
Was a little wary about the location after reading some reviews, however I thought this was a great little hostel! Staff were super friendly and helpful. They were very inviting to the nights out, so yeah a really social hostel. Would definitely recommend. Thanks
Location was awesome, and the hostel looks absolutely stunning on the inside with all the doors painted differently. That said, the kitchen is small, doesn't really contain anything useful for eating, there's no common room to hang around in (except for a dirty place on top of the roof), the wifi is slow and the staff was not really anything to celebrate either. Oh, it was dirty too.
The staff was very friendly and the free breakfast is a plus. It was very cold in my room when it was cold as windy outside.
It was a really cool hostel whit a lot of art inside on the wall/doors. The staff was really friendly and helpfull whit a nice rooftop chilling place.the toilet and bathroom where clean. The only thing that I didnt liked was that there is no acces to the fridge after 9:30

One of the worst hostels I stayed in. The staff is way to busy trying to be cool. They care much more about themselfs as about the customer. When I wanted to check in I had to wait until they finished their talk behind the desk about rarely important things. Room was pretty dirty, thousands of hairs on my blanket and white spots on my sheet. Dirty and smelly bathrooms, extremely dirty and really bad equipped kitchen. Loud and drunk people every night. Not worth the money at all!!!!
The hostel is ok, a bit pricey maybe, but we could not sleep due to the noise of people partying in the hostel rooms, even if that was not allowed. Unfortunately the staff did not do much to solve it, so if you want to sleep maybe think it twice before booking.
Fun party hostel if that is what you are looking for. Staff was really Nice helpfull and funny! Location is great!
One of the best hostels I've seen in Australia. Room size no more than 4 beds, the roo. Was relatively cool, And space to hang clothes as well as lock things away. Awesome roof top terrace and tv room where you can meet folk. The staff try hard to organize events. Great experience overall, cheers guys and a shout out to Joanna!
The bathrooms are dirty and mouldy and the carpet stinks like smelly feet... To come home at night is just a risk because of all the drunk people around there...

You get told a load of info when you check it, which throws you slightly,its said all at one time with no info to read through, got bitten on my arms and legs too, whether this to do with the beds I'm not sure!
No air conditioning. Place is run down and doesn't look like it's cleaned that often. Would not stay here again.
