    This place was lovely, every room I stayed in (stayed here 4 separate occasions each for a couple of nights) was clean and tidy! The staff were all really helpful and smiled and welcomed me each time Katherine and Bo were the stand out ones for most helpful :)! Thank you base.

    Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. Decent sized room, clean, good bathroom. Good location and staff. Only downside is small kitchen, only one sink and not much counter space, and never clean.

    Overall a decent place to stay, in a good area walking distance from the city. People were nice in general and the staff were helpful - accommodating my delayed arrival (Catherine was very welcoming and helpful upon arrival)

    Good: extremely helpful and happy go lucky staff, Ben(ji) is great. Sent us off to happy travels to book Australia zoo and have amazing east coast deals. Staff also helped me scan in documents I needed and email it over to me, Can't fault the staff at all! Bad: the rooms are super gross :( the cleaners only came in to change beds but there was stuff under the beds, can tell it hasn't had a hoover for a while. The bathrooms... Just purely grim. This could be a much better hostel with some TLC!

    The bathroom and the shower were ensuite and probably no one had clean those before our check in. The air condition was broken and we couldn’t switch it off, it was so cold inside the room. Everything looked very worn-out and not so clean. Anyway the stuff was very nice, it’s a pity to give them a low review!

    Location was very good, beds comfy There was only 1 lift so took AGES to get from floor to floor, kitchen was tiny considering the size of the hostel and always unbearably hot, the shower and toilets are in the same room which is annoying when sharing a room with 8+ people, only 1 plug point in the rooms

    I would not recommend this hostel. Very dirty, not enough facilities and the ones they have are slimy and overused, the music from the bar next door is so loud that you can hear it perfectly well even with earplugs in. Even if it was half the price I wouldn’t consider going back.
