great facilities, incredible unprofessional management. but the day manager, d., is a huge problem. as long as he is in duty, shiralee is not suitable for travellers. worst case: i asked for earlier checkout at 8am to get a ride to the next destination. answer: "reception opens 9am, bro". and the 29th december is a public holiday. plan around our reception times, i want my private time... etc. he is raging around daily and barely at the reception. this is a no go, and so: avoid this hostel!
Amazing hostel, great location, friendly staff, would stay again
Everyone was very welcoming when I arrived, only problem I really has was because I wasn't here to work pretty much everyone here was so It was hard to meet people during the day ! Still overall it was a great hostel !
Good hostel but could be better if staff were actually in reception when it says it is open. Needs more cutlery and plates in the kitchen too and to keep the doors closed at night to stop mosquitos eating you in your sleep
It's a alright place. Tim was nice enough to give us a room that had better occupants.

No signs on the back door if you arrive late. Very aggressive night manager who has no qualms about coming into your room without knocking. Heard they have mice and had money stolen from my wallet as the rooms dont lock. Still awaiting a refund from the manager. Modern looking hostel in a decent location but lacking any sort of customer service or customer care skills. Reception is rarely manned. Save yourself any hassle and book elsewhere.
The staff was really nice and tried to help where they could. The lounge, kitchen and backyard are clean and big enough. Unfortunately, they didn´t have enough dishes and cutlery so I always had to borrow from others. Many of the people there are working but also up for a good night out. They have big lockers in the room and a nice terasse to chill out at. The neighborhood is nice with many nice restaurants and bars just a ten minutes awalk away.
