    Really great spot. Alot of co-living people but they were all really friendly but maybe not to spot if you want real traveller atmosphere. Free laundry was awesome and staff gave some good tips for hikes. A bit chilly in winter but with an extra blanket it was fine. Will be back!

    Close to train station. Close to pub with live music (seem to be the only one) short walk to Coles and main strip of shops. Albeit sometimes it seemed a bit of a walk when legs are tired. Friendly staff. Clean to a hostel expectation. Was a bit noisy at night coz of the train, but it didnt bother me. Nice big common area with tv, fireplace and kitchen. A bit dated but for cost you pay, it's really good value.

    I shared an 8 bed with two men 40+, this made me a little uncomfortable as they were a little strange (lots of long termers). 1 staff was very helpful with maps and knowledge. The other was quite rude when I asked to store my bags because she had overslept and I woke her up when I rang the hostel phone. The room smelt terrible and the beds were loud and small. The general facilities though are very good. Maybe when it's busy the hostel has more atmosphere.

    Okay, but lack of heating in main room downstairs meant it was only warm if right by the fire. Otherwise you needed a coat on to be warm enough indoors.
