Only stayed one night and arrived late (delayed flight) and they did offer to wait up for me after the bar closed if needed. Looked a good place, but left early in the morning so unable to comment more than that.

Nice hostel and enjoyed my stay. However my main issue was when I tried to book tours with reception and got vague answers. A tour requiring one more person to join was on the notice board all week and all I got was "might be going tomorrow". It only went when I found others from the hostel 2 days later to make up the numbers myself. The sign was still up after I checked out after a 5 day stay.

Location and the hostel itself were great, however the concept of trying to join tours only exists at the weekend. I did get some help booking transport (taxis) to nearby national parks. Hostel was nearly completely empty most evenings which made it a bit lonely for a solo traveler.

Dorm room was cramped not a big problem on it's own but made 10 times worse by having the radiators on full blast every night. Couldn't sleep properly even next to the window with it wide open. Bar downstairs is also open to the public, got threatened by some local drunk the night I arrived, to be fair the security did deal with the problem. Was told on the final night by security to avoid pubs north of the river (Bru bar is "north of the river") Good points were the live music and the pizza

Internet access was shockingly slow however that was the only minor complaint. Everything else was great, location, rooms, showers etc. Got a lengthy list of things to see and do on arrival. The bar area at night was a great spot to meet other travelers.

Yes it is very noisy and has a poor shower/toilets to guests ratio but I knew that anyway before I arrived. Overall not a bad place to stay for a couple of nights. Only complaint has to be the idiot on the door at Belushi's bar who got very aggressive because I didn't have I.D and politely explained to him that I had to show photo I.D to get my key card in the first place. (I'm 35 and going slightly grey by the way).............at least the other one showed a bit of sense and let us in !

Hi, Sorry we couldnt help you for more than 1 night. We wish we had more beds over summer - as do all hostels I guess. Thank you very much for your high rankings. Cheers, Pete

Some fat fuzzy haired computer geek in room 106 smelled that bad we had to have the window open at night. Everyone knew who I was on about whenever I mentioned it........people should never have to share a room with a person like that

Outstanding hostel. Location in a residential area lets it down slightly as you can't sit outside after 10:30pm due to previous complaints about noise by people who live nearby...

Matthew, Thanks for the positive thoughts. Our location is seen by many as a good thing considering the low noise at night time. So many travellers of today are looking for that quieter environment and prefer to get a good nights sleep rather than party till 5am every morning!! But I would agree that on these warm nights it is frustrating having the outside closed down. The rules and regulations of city councils leave me bewildered and dazed at times... anyway, I hope you continue to enjoy your time in Australia. Travel safely - Hopper
