Lovely hostel in a beautiful city house. It's really small,maybe 30 people. Some might not like that, but I think it's great because you get to know all of them in a day and then it feels like in a family :) Yes, the showers and the toilets are too small, but on the other hand it's always super clean and lovely decorated. The kitchen is the best I've ever seen!! Everything is there, loads of free stuff (alcohol) as well. Great common room and the Staff is really friendly and helpful
A great small hostel with awesome staff, lots of bathrooms and big rooms. A complimentary lock for the room lockers and also free towels are offered, as well as free pasta and basic stuff for cooking. But the kitchen is really small, only 2 stove tops are too little. The common room is a bit dark and there's only one table, I didn't like it too much there, but it always depends on the people that are there ;) Location is quite far from the big clubs and the beach but near to touristic sites.
It's waaaay too expensive for what it offers. Don't let the image delude you, it's not that cool.I was in a room without a window, and there's no atmosphere at all. Noone is cooking dinner, everyone is just sitting on their own. No hostel feeling at all. The staff wasn't really welcoming or friendly either. The location and the daily city tour are awesome though. Stilll, it's not worth half of its price.
Good, more reasonably priced alternative to the beach sister-hostel, it's very big though and the location is really bad. You can't walk there and the walk from the last tram station to the hostel is a 15 minute uphill walk at night. For my taste there were too many alternative, weed smoking people there, not the expected nice Nice people. Also it's hard to get people to party in the centre because most of them just stay in the (nice) common bar drinking the whole night. Rooms are okay.
What a nice hostel, really high quality! The only downsides: the kitchen is too small - no oven and only 1 (!) stove top is too little. Also it doesn't have AC and most of the rooms are located to a loud street. The location is really dodgy, but if you take the big roads to the centre you're going to be fine. Then again it's really lovely decorated, has a nice bar which could use a happy hour or specials, to animate people, and an awesome backyard to hang out and having dinner. Cool crew as well
The best part of this hostel is its great welcoming staff. All of them are so helpful and nice, they try to make a connection with every guest and made me feel very welcome. The common room is nicely decorated and a good place to hang out when it rains, but there's not too much get together going on, as some rooms are in the next building. Shower in the toilet room is okay, but clearly not perfect compared to other hostels. The worst part is the location, you have to take the metro all the time
Awesome place! Had to get used to it first, but then the Rooftop with the pool and the big common rooms are so perfect! I could spend a whole day there. It's a bit hard to meet people because of the size and the bar downstairs is nice but not a good place for meeting people. Still the rooms are perfect, everything is super clean and nice, the best hostel in Brisbane as many work-and-travellers have told me. I can say it's 10x better than Bunk hostel
One shower and toilet for 12 people? No. It's big, anonymous, a bit worn down... I wouldn't go there again.
A perfect hostel! It's like a holiday resort! Really relaxed atmosphere. A little bit hard to meet people I thought, because there's no "centre" but everything else is just perfect.The mostly identical Tropic Days is a bit nicer and more social, but this one is waay more central and there are even BBQ events and fire shows in the evening.
One of the most amazing hostels! For the long distance to the city you get much more common space - especially around the pool - than in other more central hostels. I was a bit disappointed that the AC was 1$ per 3 hours, the description wasn't telling that. Also Room No. 7 - the transit room - should cost less than a normal 3 bed dorm as people transit to the next room. Still, it's one of the best, if not the best hostel in Cairns!! The staff is so friendly and it feels like paradise!Book it!
if you like americans on drugs and burping sweedish girls, go there.
best. hostel. ever.
Big anglo-saxon dominated hostel with a great kitchen and roof top. It's not really social though because of its size. Hard to meet people without effort. Still the facilities are great, the rooms really spacious and ACed. Location and staff are great, as well.
This is one of the loveliest hostels I've ever been to. It has the perfect size: You get to know the other guests quickly and it's always a relaxed, quiet atmosphere inside. At the same time it's located literally IN the night life of Sydney when you step out. The managers are so nice and original, you can see how much love they put into even the smallest details of the hostel. This atmosphere transfers to the guests as well, some of them are even part of the great staff. Just perfect!
I have nightmares thinking about this hostel, mainly because of the weird people in my room. There were only working/living people there, it smelled terrible and because you couldn't really open the windows, it didn't change. The bathrooms were dark, disgusting and smelled. The common room and kitchen were cold and there was no atmosphere at all. It's a place to stay if you have nothing else but not a hostel. Don't book it.
A big anglo-saxon party hostel, if you can adjust it's a fun place to stay, if not it may suck because it's loud all night. Still, the location (St Kilda) ist just awesome, the kitchen well equipped and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
A really good hostel with awesome welcoming staff, great beds and bathrooms and good kitchens / common rooms. They also organize pub crawls at night and there's a lot of party in the backyard. The area is pretty nice, loads of cafés, bars and restaurants around, but everything is pretty expensive even though it's supposed to be alternative.
+: Friendly and routined staff, well organized, very good breakfast, nice little bar, quiet at night, clean bathroom and 1 key per person. You don\'t hear train sounds, as they end in the station and drive slowly! -: location, but it\'s NOT as far as mentioned by some people: there\'s a shortcut to the main station, you need 8-10 mins there (in the snow!) some street noise when we were there, it\'s very big (260 beds) so not a great place for lonesome riders.
1 key per ROOM (!) is just lame! They definitely have to change that. It\'s really annoying if you can\'t get into the room and it\'s unsafe as well because you don\'t have to show anything on the reception if you go to the rooms. The bathrooms were not so clean, the shower not very hot. beds were good though and if you\'re lucky enough you have nice australian girls in your room ;)
good: clean (bath-)rooms, high security standard, air conditioned rooms, near to a major subway station bad: for breakfast there\\\\\\\'s only toast and low quality cereal, showers are very small and uncomfortable (no light -> dark), housekeeping ladies clean the bathrooms right in the rush hour from 8-10 o\\\\\\\'clock (breakfast time) and don\\\\\\\'t let you in when they are cleaning.
pro: good location, cheap, rooms very clean. cons: only 1 of 3 staff members was friendly and competent, only 1 key per (8 bed-) room, ours couldn't be found, cancellation email wasn't read but found at the end of the stay by the competent staff member
