    This was a great hostel for meeting people as there was good events on every night. Sean the party rep was a good guy and great for encouraging everyone to get involved. It’s also just 5 minutes from the beach and a shopping centre with a Woolworths. Great location. Although there is some street construction going on right now which isn’t so great in mornings.

    Very Good

    The facilities and everything they offer here is brilliant, only thing that let's it down is the ridiculous amount of staff they have 'working' and staying here that just sit around and make the common areas their area and make actual guests feel unwelcome. A shame because it could be absolutely fantastic.

    Facilities are great here. Bathrooms are super clean. And the staff were lovely. The living room is outside the room we stayed in so we were kept up until the early ours by other guests. Would have been better to have the rooms set back from the common area. It was annoying as the rest of the hostel was great, was just unfortunately let down by this.

    This hostel was overall ok but the staff were pretty cliquey and took up a lot of space in the kitchen and common area, it felt uncomfortable sometimes. There were also some staff in my room and their stuff was everywhere. The mattress was the worst I’ve ever been on, the springs were the poking into my back and made it hard to sleep. The kitchen and bathrooms were dirty most of the time. I wouldn’t stay again.
