Bit of a dive really. Shower water went into the hallway and made about 10 meters of carpet wet and smelly. Dorm room door lock wasn't working. Not a hostel I'd recomend

Positives: The hostel is in a great location, really close to the cbd and the train station. The free wifi is really fast. Negatives: It's very unclean. The rooms have a strange smell, and the bathrooms are quite disgusting. The staff weren't very helpful.

Hostel overall was fine, you get what you pay for and the location was great. The showers were all broken however and weren't very clean so not somewhere to go if you're even a slight clean freak. The atmosphere wasn't too great, was pretty quiet and not much going on, the worst thing about the hostel has to be the staff, out of the 2 the female was fine and helpful however the male was very ubhelpful and very miserable and almost rude, I felt this was extremely poor. Overall was OK.

I stayed at the hive hostel for 3 nights and it was absolutely disgusting! It's dirty and smelly, the kitchen facilities were really bad. There aren't enough showers for the people, the water was in the whole bathroom and the lights didn't work sometimes. Absolutely NOT RECOMMENDED!

Location is the best thing about this hostel. It is close to the city and northbridge 5-10 minutes walking distance from everywhere. 100m to the main train station.

located within 5 minutes walking distance from northbridge which is where the bars and many restaurants are. the CAT bus which is a free bus loop service is within 50 meters of the hostel. they provide free wifi at all times. the hostel may not be the cleanest but you get good value for money considering. there is a jobs board to help anyone looking for a job and foxtel on the tv. would recommend getting a 4 share dorm room as they all have ac

It's a party hostel, so if you wanna a good rest, it's better to choice another one. Toilets and showers are just ok, sometimes is a bit dirty, cuz drunk peoples. Location is near city and stuffs are friendly.
