    Very cozy hostel. Great staff. But strong audibility, the impression that everyone is knocking on the walls. Rooms have heaters and comfortable beds.

    the hostel is located in chinatown so it’s very loud in the evening/night. Besides that I was happy with the accommodation and cleanness.

    Location is just inside China town, amid of restaurants, stone thrown distance from QV market and all other facilities in CBD. Staffs are really helpful, cheering &good. We were there in room 309 and 208 till 30Aug 2022 morning. Cleanliness is a point to improve. Specially toilets and common area. We were there in private rooms. They have basic facilities, kitchen is full of utensils, cutlery sets. No elevator, if you are allocated in 3rd floor, have to come down 4 floors for underground kitchen

    Excellent location and a fantastic little pub. The accommodation was basic (as you'd expect with backpacker accommodation) but the beds were comfortable and warm. Nice to have an opening window, looking out over Chinatown. Communal facilities were quite basic, but at least available. As guests it was a nice touch being offered a discount for all drink purchases at the hotel. The only food served were pizzas, which were only $10 and quite nice. Bottleshop on the premises was also a convenience.

    The place was so depressing, common room and kitchen had no life, no breakfast included, no power point or light beside dorm bed, shower rooms were cramped with nowhere to keep your things dry while you showered, no elevator, kitchen cool room had no latch so was open and let everything go off. I planned to stay longer but chose to leave after one night as there are so many better options with free breakfast and cheaper and better ambience, better entertainment options, etc.

    Loud city noises, m*** addicts wailing in the street all night, police sirens and drunks. Insanely overpriced for a single room. Bathrooms are dated, a random walked into my the door didn't lock properly.
