Good value for money as it includes breakfast. Beds are comfortable. Location in glebe is cool is. Transport to the centre is reasonable. Common areas are shut down at 22:00 so people drink in the street. The ammo until of bathrooms/Showers is not sufficient for the amount of beds and therefore the bathrooms become dirty very quickly after cleaning. One fridge apears permanently broken... at least for the entire duration of our stay. Couples/ons sharing bunk beds in dorm rooms is common.

AWFUL!! Everything was extremely unclean and disgusting. Cockroaches crawling around in the rooms and the kitchen. Don't go there!


Even with at least one homeless woman living in my dorm room, I am so incredibly thankful I booked an all female dorm. There are people (in their 50's and older) straight up living here. It made me, as a solo female traveler, feel too uncomfortable to spend time in the common area aside from the few times I used wifi. Also, I couldn't get the smell of sewer out of my nose for at least a day after checking out. Cute neighborhood though, just wouldn't recommend this place.


Great location for those not wanting to stay right in the middle of the city. Hostel is great value but could do more to keep rooms clean where long term guests are staying. Left the room cluttered and a little dirty.
