Lift doesn't work! That meant a lot of trickery stairs with a very heavy suitcase!

We stayed here on two different occasions. Once in a two bed private and once in a there bed private. The second stay was much much more comfortable. The first time the window didn't work well and no air came through with poor a/c so was a very hot night. The 2nd time the room was more spacious and the window served it's purpose. Staff are great very helpful and the breakfast in the morning is fine.

Maybe a tad expensive for what you get, but the staff were the most helpful people I've ever come across in any hostel. They offer you a tour on arrival, come around at breakfast to see if you need any help planning your day and are always on hand to offer advice and answer questions. The facilities are pretty good, too - there's a kettle, microwave, coffee machine and computers for general use as well as good wifi, a small basement gym and a bar in the hostel with reasonably priced drinks.

Hotels in the area at the same time for peak season are cheaper than your rates. Rooms are dull , toooooooo basic for the money . The shower and other features of the room are less desirable.

This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were extremely rude, the rooms were extremely dirty and showers filled with mould. The aircon didn't work and reception didn't seem to care. There was no fridge or kitchen to use, unless you wanted to cook dinner before 6pm. The chef uses it from 6-10:30pm. The kitchen is extremely dirty to use, which is what the chef uses to cook all the meals at the restaurant. A girl got bed bugs and the staff didn't believe her. I moved to pastoral!

Location was incredible and close to everything. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was AMAZING. Cleanliness...I am not sure the two rooms I stayed in were ever cleaned, certainly not the bathrooms. A new shower curtain and some bleach for cleaning are not that hard to come by! There was mold on the curtains and the walls in the bathrooms. Value for money...the hostel is really expensive. I wish it were cleaner for what they charge! Overall it was great though!

The common spaces were comfortable and spacious. The happy hour was excellent and so was the hostel's location. However, the dorm rooms were cramped and the ensuite bathrooms were constantly getting filthy. There seemed not to be enough bathrooms for all of the people in he dorms. Overall, this was a fairly good hostel but I expected better dorm conditions for this price.

My sister and I only stayed one night and are glad that was all. This place was quite dirty and not worth the money we payed, we have stayed in nicer places for less. I personally will not be staying here again

Stayed in a 12 person dorm the bathroom was filthy and we had no toilet paper for 24 hours (not for lack of asking!). Looks much better on their website than it is in reality - it's way overpriced for the level of service and facilities.

Great location. Good facilities bar, gym etc, comfortable bed. However the shower was poor, it was positioned too far away from the bath and was uncomfortable to stand over the tap! Hotel WiFi wasn't working for 3 out of 4 nights so that was also disappointing but a good stay overall.

This hostel is in a great location, has excellent facilities and has an awesome atmosphere. The hostel staff are friendly and helpful. There are heaps of optional day trips available and a bunch of common areas (including a bar) where it is easy to meet people. I would say this has been my favourite hostel since travelling.

Hostel was great: Roommates were a bit noisy but the staff and the hostel couldnt really do much to help that situation
