    Superb

    04 Oct 2018
    Spent 4 weeks here and it was incredible! Met so many amazing people as a solo female traveller. The staff are great, events are fun! The common area/bar is really good as it’s one area so people can easily talk. Two kitchens, showers and toilets everywhere so you never need to wait. Security /reception is secure. Just very chilled fun place to be. Just out of the main city but there’s a shuttle every hour or you can walk in 20 minutes. Beds comfy. I already miss this place!

    ~staff was the friendliest of any hostel I’ve ever stayed at ~bar could get loud but music always shut off at midnight ~everything is getting remodeled so great quality rooms (new kitchen coming too it looks like) ~lockers in rooms, but I never felt the need; very comfortable and safe hostel ~free breakfast everyday (pancakes, granola, cereal, toast) ~free wifi works amazingly well ~about 20 minutes from center, but free shuttle every hour and not a bad walk along the esplanade

    Fabulous

    It was very good hostel, great value for my money. The bathrooms, kitchen and toilet were always clean. Great breakfast (the best from all the hostels at the east coast), staff very nice and helpful. Evening with free BBQ and free pizza. It’s a party hostel every day so can be very noisy but still worth it.

    The staff were rude and didn’t know what they were doing. No bus for collection from greyhound stop and this hostel is not in a central location. Used 3 different showers on 3 different days in a different block each time and all were cold and dirty. The free breakfast was good , but the kitchen is tiny and very dirty. Do not stay here - worst hostel on east coast shouldn’t be a 9 rating.
