    One of my absolute favorite hostels in AUS. Great central location, and awesome friendly staff. Was really easy to meet people as a solo traveler and made some incredible friends. Buzzing atmosphere every night. Overall, I can’t fault this place. I didn’t wanna leave and will definitely be back!

    Really friendly social hostel with a fun atmosphere. Free dinner every night, happy hour deals every night and discounts on food and drinks outside of those times too! There was entertainment each night so you could never get bored. All the facilities you need and it’s in the perfect location. The only thing was the bathroom wasn’t the cleanest but when you’ve got 8 people sharing one bathroom you can’t expect too much! Would definitely come back!

    Amazing location, free dinner every night, always stuff going on in the bar and very social! Only downside was lack of WiFi $2 for 24 hours and a 500mb limit and a few of the staff were slightly moody.

    Good atmosphere and the free food was really nice. It was also good that there was a discount at the restaurant next door, and handy to have the tourist help desk within the hostel. The kitchen facilities were good and you could drink your own alcohol in there to save some money. The bathrooms needed a good clean, but I would still stay again.

    Overall this is a great hostel and I would recommend! Pros: great location, social atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, cheap drinks, good activities, and free food (good, but restaurant offers more too) Cons: the lockers were small and couldn’t accommodate my backpack. Beds were passable, but not great. Same with bathroom and bedroom cleanliness - one odd thing was people that weren’t staying in our ten bed room would often walk through it from the porch to the courtyard.

    Great atmosphere, fun social drinks and games, but rooms smelt terrible - had to keep leaving the door wide open to air them out.

    Security was pretty poor, no brilliant events were hosted. Good location for Byron though if you’re there for a few nights.

    I think the hostel really needs to update their security because no one in the dorm would lock the door. I don’t even think housekeeping did after the cleaned the room. They should start using key cards for the rooms. The bathroom in the dorm was really gross and had a ton of black mold all over the walls. There was also no soap and the floor was always covered in water. The hostel’s events were quite boring but did appreciate the cheap drinks at the bar and the free food everyday.
