    Perfectly situated in the city center, a little loud though and the dorm rooms are quite small. Free breakfast and rice is available.

    I really liked this hostel very much, because it is not so massive and busy as some other hostels. They have a well equipped kitchen and very nice and clean showers. My bed was a bit uncomfortable though, but the rest of my stay was really good. I do think the hostel was difficult to find, luckily I found someone who knew the area and could point it out to me.

    Very Good

    Reasonably priced in a great location. Bar sells pints for $5.50 which is much appreciated. Some rooms to back onto the bar so it can be quite loud. If you're looking for somewhere quiet look elsewhere. If location and price are all that matter then I can't fault the Blue Galah.

    Very Good

    Blue Galah was an uncomfortable experience. As in other hostels people stay long term there while working. However, there were also long term guests not working and this makes for depressed people wanting cheering up and look-out for food to steal. The public areas are dark and cramped and worst was finding a couple having *** in the shower.

    First of all... the outside bar makes it almost impossible to fall asleep on weekends... cause it's just too loud. There are boxes which serve as "lockers" but they can't really be locked and are tiny. Breakfast is okay tho not of great quality nor is there big choice. Location is very central.

    Visted the blue galah hostel. It was a very dark hostel, there were people living there and the hostel did not smell great. Very stuffy and a dark hostel. Showers were okay but other than that I was glad to check out. Kitchen was small and dirty but the the kitchen was equipped. Location is right in the city but would not stay here again.

    This hostel had a good location but was really dirty. There was mouldy carrot on the bed and the sheets were all stained. When we told the man at reception, he just took the mattress topper off and said there you go. Wouldn’t recommend staying here at all.
