    Flinders hostel is centrally located near the train station, shopping, grocery, and a multitude of restaurants and coffee shops. Located close to the central market and various venues of interest to any traveler. The hostel itself is very secure and clean. The bathrooms and guest rooms were immaculate. The staff was remarkably friendly and helpful. Additionally, the kitchen is very large with multiple cooking stations, so several guest can cook at the same time. A great place to stay!

    Place had good accommodations with a big kitchen, big common area and was in a good location in CBD. You’d need to take the public transport of you want a beach vacation so it’s not great for that but has a good vibe in the city. Huge walk in fridge for storing your goods. Bar downstairs is available if you don’t want to work too hard to find drinks outside elsewhere and can get pretty busy as well. Staff was really friendly upon checkin. Would recommend unless you want Walkout beach access

    The room only had a ceiling fan so might get quite hot. Free breakfast was good, amazing pancakes. Location is absolutely perfect. Wasn’t too noisy during the night even though it’s a party hostel.

    Excellent hostel in a really central location. Would recommend the 11th floor (premium) for an extra comfortable stay. The reception staff are friendly and helpful and in general I thought there was a nice buzz to the place

    Very Good

    We stayed at the triple bed room and overall the experience was not bad. We had only two problems with the room, which was a strong smell of mothballs, and noise from outside and inside the hostel. If you like partying then that's your hostel. Even in the reception there was a party every night, besides the one going on at their event space. If you like sleeping, not so much.
