    I was travelling by myself and the pleasant atmosphere of this hostel gave me the opportunity to meet interesting people. In addition, all facilities are exceptional, starting from the kitchen, where they offer free pasta and rice, then bathrooms which are completely new and always clean. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone

    Honestly an amazing hostel! It's probably the best I've stayed in. Highly suggest staying in a superior dorm if you have the extra cash. Super clean and modern facilities and super lovely staff.

    First ever experience of staying in a hostel and It was grand! Everywhere was clean, the staff nice, beds good, charger next to you and a shelf for things. Best of all was the free breakfast! Would be happy to stay again if I ever go back to Melbourne!

    Perfect location, great stay. However, the key card system to get into the bathrooms is not very convenient as one sometimes goes to the bathroom without the key card.

    Location was q hard to find and level 1 of the building was a pub… which might’ve made it a little more noisy than usual in the night, Toilets are occasionally clogged and showers are q bare and windy. Do love the security and the card aspect.

    Party hostel, very lively and noisy. Staff was not particularly friendly. Some strange policies. I booked a mixed deluxe dorm and ended up in a dorm with 5 guys who have been living there for a while (which was reflected in how the room looked and smelled). Did not feel very comfortable as the only woman und would have appreciated it if the staff had let me know about this at the check-in so I would have switched to a female dorm.
