Has a really nice little spa inside the hostel, staff are really helpful and nice people. Good location, walkable from the station and some good places to eat in the area.
Really informative staff, although this was only a 1 night stay I actually went back for a few more nights. Easy to get to from the bus/train station, cubes are great, peaceful and the breakfast is good quality.
Great little host, excellent staff and easy to get to and from via the tram. Is very close to the main sites and some great food in the area.
Staff were great, very helpful and lively, it's a true Japanese experience though so if your not happy sleeping on tatami mats with other people you may want to re-think. I had a great time here.
A converted hotel that is a little run down but perfectly functional, not exactly a hostel as I know it but has not badly priced private rooms. Staff were helpful and welcoming.
Thanks a lot people, only marked you down a bit on cleanliness for the bathrooms but you can't do much about it, maybe more lighting, something to help with the smells?
Thank you Kai, good luck with the hostel for the future
Thanks for making me feel welcome, I wish you luck in the future
Your sixth floor is really noisy at night.
Thank you for everything,
Would be better if the shower in the main bathroom was more powerful
Rooms could of been better looked after, mine was messy due to other travellers. Bathroom floor was dirty most of the time I was there.
Thanks for everything
Nice place but just overpriced
I already complained but did not appreciate the French staff speaking in French whilst dealing with me, also staff seamed to have no idea where to go for a night out (again maybe new staff). Bret (I think) the Aussie tour guy was really helpful though so thanks to him. Breakfast needs better signposting. Rooms were a bit claustrophobic.
No lockers but I had nothing stolen, Good location for the part of Melbourne, staff were great as I changed my booking twice with no issues, only issues I had were the Kitchen was a bit too small for the amount of people, and the open area allowed smoking which made it horrible for me as I hate smoking.
A converted hotel, this means the place is huge and you are just yet another backpacker. Internet is free (200Mb per day) but the room I was in was so small for 8 beds, bound to be like an oven in summer as no air-con. Kitchen was ridiculously overstocked, probably not been emptied in months. There is a bar downstairs which I didn't go to, breakfast was free which was a bonus. Is in a good location for the CBD though.
Is in a good location for St Kilda but because it has a club on the rooftop don't expect to sleep much at weekends or on nights when they have events. I didn't go to the bar downstairs but I did go to breakfast and was disappointed by the way one particular staff member was treating people. We may be backpackers, we may be poor but we are people.
A little pricey (This might be due to Aussie Dollar rates) but good hostel, has a nice friendly feel to it, lots of areas to sit and chat, good kitchen and close to shops and bars in the area.
Loved this place (despite hating LA in general) the staff were really cool people and encouraged social through chat and not loud music and free beer. My only issue was the television, but I ignored it so that was fine. It's close to places to buy supplies and about a 20 min walk to the beach.
Lockers are only a quarter but you need to pay for them every time you open them which is so uncool. Hostel is very party heavy, lots of free beer which is great if you don't mind drinking Budwiser (which I hate). Beer Pong seems to be the in thing along with shouting louder than anyone else. The music I found quite anti-social having to shout at people all the time. Great venue for Hollywood, pity I hated Hollywood
Lockers are available (own lock) your not next door to Yosemite but the bus is fairly regular so you can get in without any issues. Excellent facilities including the $10 spa which includes hot tub and sauna, food is expensive so make ssure you stock up before you get there as nearest store is a bus ride away.
I see what people are saying about this hostel, it does have a strange feel to it. Still it's in a good enough place and I didn't really stay long enough to hate it. Give it a go, book for a few night, if that don't work, spend a little more and try using Air BnB
Thanks for all the help, enjoyed hanging out with you for an evening too.
I had an odd time at this hostel. The staff were nice and for the first day it was okay as I was so tired from the travel, there was a lot of noise during the night as I had one of the outside rooms. I hardly slept for the next three days due to the noise and by the time they could offer me a room change I had already made my mind up to leave. I met a few really nice people but was glad to change hostel.
I spent 7 days in San Fran here at this hostel and had a great time. Ryan greeted me with enthusiasm and gave me a map right from the get go telling me as much as he could in a short space of time. The hostel is small but that makes it easier to meet other people I find, the people who came and went were generally friendly and I have been able to keep in touch with a few of them. A few of the staff like a drink and will offer you to go to a nearby bar with them.
Not really a hostel, this is a hotel with some rooms that are shared like a hostel. There is no common room and no wifi but it is right in the heart of the city so that is a bonus. The staff when I went were rather unhelpful but polite
It can be loud at night if your not wanting to join in the fun that is happening, they need to keep people in the courtyard a bit quieter. The staff were good apart from some of the night staff I encountered who were not very helpful or forthcoming with information. The 3pm checkin is fairly ridiculous too.

I had a great time, hostel is clean and staff are very helpful. I cannot recommend this place enough and next time I shall go to the place they have in the south.
NIce bunch of guys here, I came during a very quiet period but they were very happy to help where they could.
Not a bad place, but incredibly noisy in the evening if your tired and want to sleep. Had an amazing breakfast selection though
It's basically an apartment so no real staff to speak of, the apartment is nice though but feels a little risky coming back late at night. I had no troubles though.
The hostel has no real common room which makes socialising difficult. But the rooms are clean, beds good and its only 10 mins walk into the town. Building itself has no real character though, just a plain concrete building.
I didn't expect this kind of service but the people are fantastic, I would go back again in a heartbeat. I can't thank the people who help run this fabulous hostel enough.
