    Best hostel I have stayed at in Australia. Once they put Air-conditioning it will be hard to beat. The pool is amazing, all common area facilities are brand new and the free laundry is excellent!! The staff are super friendly and organise many events.. I’d definitely stay again.

    Loved our stay here, wish we could stay longer but went from 20$ a night to 65$ over Easter weekend which was disappointing as we had hoped to extend. But very social and friendly, would definitely stay again!

    Free laundry a great bonus! En suite is handy but wish the light didn't turn on automatically. Also the 'air con' was only a small unit which didn't do much so the rooms were very uncomfortable to sleep in during the hot nights. Staff were very friendly.

    One of the nicer hostels Ive stayed at in AU. The rooms were good (lots of space) the atmosphere was awesome and the staff were great (Janis, Louie and Rid, in particular). The hostel has great facilities tv room to chill, pool table, games and a large af kitchen with lots of fridges plus free washing. The outdoor area was wicked and had a great atmosphere to meet people by the pool. Would highly recommend especially now that they are gathering funds to upgrade to rooms to have AC. Will be back

    They went into the room and moved all my stuff into a new room without asking me and then couldn’t understand why I was upset. The rooms are dated and have no basic facilities such as even a mirror and you’re super far out of town. No A/C so rooms are pretty hot. Free laundry is good and kitchen is quite nice. You’ll be forced to listen to the staffs choice of terrible music on full blast all day.
