    I stayed in Flinders for my first time and as my first ever hostel and cannot fault it at all! I was apprehensive coming to a hostel haven’t never been to one before and I was delighted with my room. I recommend to stay in a 4/6 bed and female only if you are a girl, just in terms of cleanliness and being able to keep stuff neat / tidy in the room. I had lovely roommates, staff were pleasant and I felt very safe in there. I am going to Sydney next and I honestly would pack up flinders with me!

    Good central location with everything you could need less than a 5 minute walk away. Lots of board games and free pool meant there’s always something to do in evening, especially because no alcohol is allowed after 10pm. Beds all have a shelf two sockets and a light which is helpful, and showers are decent.

    I just wanted a bed to sleep in and it did the trick. Sits over a club so very noisy but with headphones it is fine. Nice people staying there, super big place and loads of people. Clean bedding, clean bathrooms, and smells ok. Great for younger people or older more tolerant ones.
