    Generally I enjoyed my stay at the fifth floor of Flinders Backpackers Hostel. It have been a bit noisy from the outside at night time, trams and traffic, but still acceptable to me. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I definitely will recommend this hostel to everyone.

    Easily the largest hostel I have ever stayed in. Very bustling common area - a little overwhelming at times. Standard rooms and nice bathrooms. Biggest con: extremely slow elevators. Biggest pro: location was perfect and very very cute rooftop patio/cafe. Overall, a bit tricky to make friends because of the size, but definitely recommend.

    The hostel was fine and the crew was nice however I felt like it was kind of an industry. Many people can stay at once. The cafeteria was very crowdy and noisy. Don't get me wrong, the space dedicated to eat is fine and those long tables enable you to meet many great people. You can even isolate yourself on the other side of the room if you want something a bit more quiete but you can feel lost at times in the middle of so many people. Also, the wifi didn't work for me for the 2 days I was there

    A hostel that never really felt like a hostel, more like a hotel with a common area. If you're looking to stay in the cbd and aren't fussed about meeting people then this would be a good place to stay. But if you're trying to meet people then this hostel doesn't really do anything to help out with that. Safe and clean though with a good breakfast thats free!
