    Good value for the location and price. It's nothing fancy, but for the cheap rate and central location it's a good deal.

    It was alright staying here. However, given that the accommodation is just on top of a pub, you won't really get an early snooze if you want to. The good thing is, you can always just come downstairs and have a drink or two and meet people.

    Good location within walking distance or access by free tram to most places in the city. Beautiful old building but could use a good scrub down.

    Good kitchen, clean bathrooms and toilets, Friendly staff, great location, very reasonable price. You get what you pay for it's awesome for the price but if you want somewhere with a better atmosphere then go somewhere else. But if you want solid good accomdation for the price then this is perfect

    Located in the midst of chinatown / cbd. Nothing fancy. The continuous need to login to the WiFi was a bit annoying, but at least it worked in the rooms. Staff was courteous and accomodating. Decent bar with discounts for guests at the base of the hostel. Noise comes into the rooms at night so may not be a great choice if you are an early riser. Servicable breakfast of toast, cereal, and tea included, but ends early. Outgoing people may find friends, loners will be left to themselves.

    Very Good

    Hostel was okay to stay for one night. Unfortunately I picked the 2 bedroom dorm thinking I'll have more chance to get a good night sleep, but my roommate was a strange man who decided to ,,pleasure''himself at 5:00 am, so I just grabbed all my bags and left in my pyjama. It was an awful night. It's not the hostel's fault. In the future I won't choose any 2 bed dorm for sure...
