An all around good hostel in an excellent location in downtown Melbourne, close to restaurants, Flinders Station and many other amenities. I would stay there again.
Although away from the downtown area, this hostel had character (actually was a nunnery) and generally had pleasant atmosphere. I would stay there again if in Melbourne. Book early, a lot of people seem to like The Nunnery so it fills up fast.
Great location, average hostel. The only thing I didn't like is the kitchen was too small for the number of guests. The complimentary breakfast was good though.
An all around good place to stay, not far from the CBD of Alice Springs. The extras were especially nice like the free breakfast, pool, clothes line outside, and the evening barby from 6 to 8 PM.
This hostel was marketed as not being a party hostel and that's what initially drew me there. Keep advertising this item in the future! My experience there was very good, I met more interesting guests there than at places aimed more at the partying type. What a coincidence, I found the same thing at other places not aimed at the partying crowd in my travels. The place is well kept, good security, helpful staff, everything you need and great location. Yes, I would stay here again.
It wasn't easy to find because the sign out front said Beaches, not Global Backpackers. The woman at the front desk was friendly and quite helpful for planning excursions while at Arlie Beach. If you are a guest at Global, you get a coupon for a $6 dinner with draft beer or cider, a good deal. Some noisy guests came into the dorm late at night, probably expected as Airlie Beach aimed at the partying crowd. No internet on site, use the computers at another hostel to the west.
A good clean hostel in a good location. My only complaint was I arrived by rail from Sydney at 4 AM local time and everything was locked up. I would have been nice to have the code to open the door, leave my stuff there until opening and go get breakfast. No free breakfast but food stores nearby.
Not the best place I stayed. When I was there 2 of the 4 toilets were out of order, and it was a noisier than average place. The common area outside was noisy even late at night. On the positive side, there was complimentary breakfast and good location.
