This hostel is awesome! Really is a maze. Got lost plenty of times, but it was a great way to meet new people. All the events are awesome, lots of free alcohol and food. Staff are really friendly and happy to help with any enquiries. I ended up staying an extra week and was able to get a really good discount to see the wildlife park and quarium.
A great central location, perfect for long stay travelers who are working, if not then there are a lot of cliques and so is not so easy to socialise. Found 6 cockroaches in my room, so keep your windows closed even when it's hot.
Don't be scared when you first arrive because this place is HUGE!!. You'll find your way after a while. Don't expect much of the rooms, they are clean but very basic. It's nothing more than a bed and a mirror. The toilets/showers were clean and there always was warm water. Kitchen is very good and there is almost 24/7 staff cleaning up. Location is excellent. We didn't really like the atmosphere, it was just too big for us, but that's personal.
