Excellent hostel, fantastic staff!! Kitchen and social areas are very clean and have a great relaxed atmosphere! Toilet/shower facilities are below standard could do with an upgrade!

You get what you pay for! The communal bathrooms were mouldy and you were lucky enough to get a hot shower on the odd day. If you want to get some sleep, don't stay here because it's noisy from around 3am for a couple of hours when partyers come home. Good if you want to party.

Pretty good value, got a cheap single room. Atmosphere seemed alright, cleanliness was ok, but was a very noisy hostel, from outside and inside. Old building, be warned there is not lift!!! But the guy at reception was nice enought to help me bring my bags up!


we being there twice before, we had our luggage in the storage in the baseman but when we arrive for the third time they could find our reservation so the put us in a dorm fot the same price we had pay before for a private room $60 AUS dollars, the also told us that the weekends were $90 AUS and we could be there for the $60 AUS that we had paid before we left, so, we went on line to HOSTEL WORLD and we fund a private room for $50 AUS dollares, them we saw how she discriminate us.


It was ok, the only problem is that the room was extremely dirty and smelt really bad. Also, the window did not close completely so it was a bit cold at night (but the staff gave me an extra blanket)

This is the second time I've stayed on a weekend from Newcastle. Great location in the city, especially if you want to party. No lockers in rooms which is a shame and the common lockers provided are super expensive. There is a luggage room though. I will probably stay here again.
