On my first day, 2 of the other roommates wanted my bed and gave me some troubles with their attitudes. 2nd day : I get back to the place to find someone has stolen my food in the fridge. The rat! From there on I just kept it to myself. To be honest other than that, most of the other guys were actually very friendly. But be warned : Its very messy, looks like a squat, Hippie/ party atmosphere, some lockers are broken so not enough 4 everyone. most of the guest were enjoying themselves though...

Great small hostel with a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff and cool people. Many long term stays so maybe not the right place to stay for one or two nights only. But after a few days it really felt like home to me! Thanks Anna, I'll come back :)

Great value for a hostel with clean facilities and friendly staff. However, hostel open and anyone could walk into open rooms and staff were all backpackers so weren't always at the desk. Location far away from the cbd.

great location close to the centre, friendly & helpful staff, lockers & fridge in room :) bed was very creaky, kitchen was small for the amount of people & there didn't seem to be a lot of kitchen equipment.

This hostels charm is all about the people. The facilities and location are decent, but it's the atmosphere that sets it apart. Both the staff and all the hostel guests were welcoming and immediately wanted me to be part of their family. Being included and made to feel welcome made this hostel a temporary home away from home.

Some staff were super nice and helpful. Others were seemingly absent minded. The hostel gave a really bad first impression but it grew on us rather quickly. Also has free coffee/tea and a light breakfast.
