Very good place to stay in Sydney. Definetly, a place to recommend. Great building, good location, and very nice staff.
Of course, there are not that many backpackers in Mooloolaba. However, the value for money is really poor compared to what you get in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, or other places in Australia.
I had the opprotunity to stay at this excellent hostel for more than one week. Obviously, the location is perfect - 3 minutes to the Fifth Av (Bars, Clubs, Restaurants, ...) and 5 minutes to the Convention Center (both walking-distance). The staff is very nice and helpful in every case. The facilities are very clean. Breakfast is included - the price is incredible (above all for this fantastic city). I would love to come back.
Most of the rooms are very cold during the winter session. Walking distance to Venice Beach about 30 minutes.
Besides the good location, nothing corresponds to the standards of other Hong Kong hostels. Even when prompted, that the rooms should be cleaned, there is no response. Some rooms are too noisy, dirty showers and unfriendly personal. Conclusion: This hostel is not recommended, especially since there are many hostels in the vicinity with similar good location and the same prices.
