    Really not bad considering price but the vibe of the common area is super weird. It's mostly strange middle aged people sitting around silently doing nothing all day. Not great for if you want a fun hostel experience but still worth it.

    Very central to everything. Facilities weren't great. Rooms were very bare. Lockers in the hallway, not the rooms, for some reason. Staff didn't really care about check out time, or anything, really. Great place to stay for one night if you just wanna get blackout drunk and then check out the next morning, haha. If hadn't met the lads in my room and got blackout drunk with them, not sure it would've been a very good place to socialise. Can't really say, though, cos I was out most of the time lol

    Poor cleanliness. The bedsheets were not clean, duvet bad blood stains and there were bed bugs on the mattress! The doors did not lock in shower room and the flush did not work properly.

    The bathrooms were disgusting, and overall the property just isn’t very nice. I wouldn’t stay here unless you literally can’t afford anything else.

    Pompous staff... discusting showers... cheep but not particularly cheerful. I stayed here a couple of years ago and its gone downhill since then. Must be under new management. Men's showers have to be seen to be believed. I left feeling dirtier than when I arrived. Think Austrailian version of Adams Family, they probably have voodoo cerimonies in the celler. I suspect they added a T to the name for marketing perposes.

    Very dirty beds, very small room and weird guests. Filthy toilets and showers. Insufficient locker space. Not a good hostel at all. We booked two nights, and actually decided to stay out drinking the second night as opposed to spend it in the hostel.

    I am used to the sacrifices made when staying in budget hostel accommodation, but this place is on its own level. Smashed windows, litter all over the floors, hardly any working showers, multiple people sharing beds, hardly any functional lockers and a faulty dorm door. I felt neither comfortable or safe staying here.
