    I stayed at back of chapel for 4 weeks and felt very comfortable - the free breakfast is lovely and this is a perfect hostel to stay in whilst you’re working. The people staying are really sociable and the location is amazing for bars and food on chapel street. No complaints, thank you Aaron!

    Great and cozy hostel on Chapel Street! Staff is super friendly and atmosphere is relaxed. There are no parking lots for hostel guests so you have to be lucky to get a free spot on the street. Overall a great value for a reasonable price.

    Stayed for 2 weeks over the Xmas period, whilst visiting family so just used as a place to sleep and shower. Location is perfect with Chapel Street on the door step and both the city and beaches within walking distance. Room was fine but basic, staff helpful and sorted an extra nights stay at the same rate we’d paid for the long term booking which was great. Some noise late on over a couple of nights but as this was over Xmas it was expected and nothing too bad. Good stay overall

    Very Good

    So generally my stay here was fine, despite the almost constantly absent staff - the ones I met briefly were nice, but hardly ever there! The atmosphere is...interesting. There was a lot of weed smoking on the balcony and drunken screaming from some guests in the middle of the week. The place was reasonably clean but there were very few bathrooms for a large number of people so you ended up waiting a long time if you weren't lucky. Good for cheap, inner city stays but not sure I'd stay here agai

    Cons: The no noise after 11pm was not followed most nights especially at the end of the week causing lack of sleep and even with the window closed I could here everything outside. Someone took food out of my bag in the fridge and helped themselves to it leaving the box behind empty. Pros: cool location on Chapel street with lots of cool shops and good resturants, felt pretty safe walking around at night alone in certain areas. Close to Windsor train station and other transit stops.

    Best way to describe is like a student house; looks run down and kitchen was barebones. Decent maybe if staying long term like most people there but didn’t feel massively sociable. Main door has code system but never had to use it plus room door was never locked so key was almost pointless. Perfect for exploring chapel street and all its wonders, but not for those wishing to share two bathrooms with the entire house.
