    Pros: super central location, big dorms, big lockers, very clean rooms. Met great people in my dorm. Cons: kitchen a bit dingy but I’ve seen worse. Lots of tram construction when I was there if noise is a factor in someone’s decision to stay here.

    Great hostel if you are staying for a couple of nights and want somewhere with a good location. Wouldn't suggest it if you want a really atmospheric hostel - there a lot of people living and working here. For me it worked perfectly, as I just wanted somewhere chilled with easy access to the sights. Also, it's by the far best value hostel given how expensive the other hostels are. Really clean and really well run. So I would suggest it if you are a tight budget

    Gave us a free upgrade to a private room which was great! Staff are lovely and great location. The kitchen is huge however the only issue was it being quite messy with a lot of dirty dishes. However it was a great stay thank you!

    Nice clean hostel. The 4 bed dorm was great size, has huge lockers as well. The Staff was super helpful and let me keep my backpack for the whole day in the kitchen after I have checked out. Bathrooms where new and clean. Beds were comfy. The only thing was the noise from the street till late .. not the hostel fault though.

    Super good location, good value for money, big kitchen and good key system. Almost everyone I met where staying there "long term" while working/looking for a job, that created a different atmosphere. I think that made them feel very comfortable, like "at home", which made me feel a bit like a visitor. :/ But the staff was friendly and helpful, so that was cool.

    Very Good

    Staff were super nice. Even went as far as signposting good eateries and important places on their free map for me! Couldn’t fault the check in process - they even let me check in my bags early! Not many English-speaking guests but that’s not their fault, i do want to learn Japanese! Also not a huge amount of social space but I can’t fault the staff at all. Perfect location for everything! Good WiFi connection for figuring out train services too! Thank you :-)

    Overall a pretty average to disappointing experience. This was my first hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I would hope the future hostels I explore in Australia can improve on what I see as basic fundamentals to this sort of vicinity. The staff were friendly and cleaners came round to keep the place tidy and toilets were always presentable.. weren’t able to clean the bed bugs / carpet mites that enjoyed my company for 2 weeks.. not impressed!. Social space was more like your nans front room. 4-5/10

    I was upgraded from an 8 bed mixed dorm to a 6 bed mixed dorm which was nice. However, our dorm door did not close on the first day (this was fixed in the evening by a lovely guy, but it was a worry during the day). The main reason that it was a worry was that my locker also did not close, so I couldn’t lock away any of my valuables. The water did not work one morning, so I couldn’t shower or brush my teeth. Man at reception was fast but not very friendly, couldn’t hold a conversation.

    Good location near Central but I think the hostel is too big for them to manage as the rooms are dirty. Saw staff run a quick hoover over the room and leave piles of rubbish under beds. Also a strong B.O smell on floor 2. Kitchen is bid and has everytging. My room had long term workers and a couple who didn't interact so not the greatest experience. Probably ok for a 1 night stop. Staff 5o% nice and helpful the other 50% rude and clearly only there for a free bed.
