The manager was totally awesome and helpful on the Desk. I think a 3pm check in was abit excessive as there was so many people waiting. Excelllent location as easy from MIA aiport and the beach. Jonny Events organiser was great how ever kinda feel evens are shoved down ya throat. If you want to use WIFI in the hostel you must sit downstairs whilst the reception becomes a huge party area at night (and risk a drink on your laptop) Either way was awesome but sometimes a little overbearing.

They Lady who Checked me in Was amazing and very helpful with my room. When i went into the room, fair enough was quite small but it was nice. Only few down sides was, there was a talk guy in the bed next to me and his feet would often be in my bed. There is a hideous alarm that went off from the fire alarm behind and did pretty muc go all night. The staff in the morning is what let it down as she was very rude about it with responding like there is nothing we can so . I didn' move as was full!!

Hi there, Thank you for leaving us a review and for your kind words about Rosie, I'm glad you've found her helpful. We’re sorry you felt that way about the the morning staff but unfortunately the alarm was coming from our neighbours and they was nobody in their building to stop the alarm ringing. I hope you will have better experience if you choose to stay with us next time. See you soon. Clink Team.

I Can not fault this hostel at all!! 1st of all the directions on the website were awesome and i didn't get lost. Very well located within the City andExcellent value for money, Got a free Cheeky Upgrade and had the most amazing Room Mates. Was little worried about noise being in a city but no reason to. Very good night sleep in the most Amazing Bed! After visiting the Munich Wombats, I was not disappointed with Berlin! Roof Bar Awesome. Keep up the Awesome Work Guys!!!

After emailing them to change a booking they never did so was charged. there word against mine. Some of the staff were lovely and so polite yet the others let them down. Very well located within the CBD and Free wifi and breakfast was great. Thought was little pricy for the standard and room and the showers are a little annoying with not full shower doors or not lasting longer then 30 seconds without having to press it on again.

The staff were totally awesome and the owner made the place feel like your home. It looks a little scary from the outside but it is the best place I stayed. I loved it so much, I stayed an extra 3 days. With a five minute walk to union street and the world of DC at your door, why go anywhere else . Thanks guys x x.
