Facilities are good, bar and restaurant is good. Free dinners are great. Be prepared to hang out with lots of Australians. As its a party hostel can get quite noisy with drunks coming in the dorm at all hours. Very secure and staff always helpful.
Great little hostel, great staff, just like having a little family away from home. McDonalds down stairs is also handy on the hangover days! ;)
Staff are very helpful and friendly, great social common area and perfect location to explore old town. Can get rowdy / busy if there are big groups staying!
This is more of a hotel than a hostel. Rooms are very small but neat and you need to bus to the centre of town / bit too far to walk. Staff are very friendly and rooms were very clean. Has old charm and is very quaint. Mainly older people staying as its quite pricey for what it is. I did stay in the middle of high season however! There are a few restaurants around but not a very lively area, more like the suburbs.
There is always something happening here. Don't come looking for a quite weekend and a good night sleep! My 4 bed dorm with ensuite was really hot, almost to the point where it was hard to sleep, it was 35 degree day though. Very noisy also as lots of party goers outside the window (even though I was on the 3rd floor!). Be prepared for it to be really busy!! Bar was great, staff were great and good place to meet people and have a drink on the roof!
We booked a twin room which turned out to be a caravan. We really liked it and it was a cool little room but it didn't say anywhere when we booked that it was a caravan! Staff were great and very helpful, only a few showers but not too many people so didn't have to wait long. Good location and nice outdoor meeting area.
