    Had the best breakfast there! Selfmade(!) pancakes, yoghurt, fruits, toast, etc. Cheers to the guy who made it! Price/value perfect i mean you get more then you pay for. There is no AC but apart from that everything is fine.

    Basic hostel, free breakfast, toast and pancakes. Older building, rooms did not have air-conditioning, and we’re a little bit muggy. Atmosphere was pretty good, there was a nice outside area, and very conveniently located near the train station. Not the nicest hostel I’ve been to by far, but I would stay here again.

    Very Good

    This hostel could easily be great if it had air con or even decent fans in the rooms! I could hardly sleep some nights because it was so hot, and most rooms had to have their doors open to let in some air, which made it less secure. The bathroom facilities and everything else are fine. I only moved hostel due to the heat.

    We went for Sydney Mardi Gras for the weekend and booked a 6 bed dorm for me and all my friends. . We had the room booked for just friends so wasn't sharing with anyone random.The cleaner came in the room in the morning clapping her hands telling us to wake up and move our stuff. We advised her we had the room for just us! she then started kicking our stuff out the way while she hoovered. The cleaners are very rude and treat people with no respect.

    Wasn't a very happening place. If you are a long termer this is a good place to stay but if you are a traveler like me then it's best to choose another hostel, unless do you don't mind staying somewhere quiet.

    The location is good. The rooms smells and some roommates are old people who live there, so no backpackers. Bathrooms are a bit dirty. I guess you get what you pay.

    Bathrooms were gross, I could feel the springs in my bed. The people staying there are very clique-y speaking their native tongue, making it very hard for an English speaking guest to make friends.

    worst hostel ive ever stayed in! firstly, the fridges didnt work, so all the food id bought went to bad and the staff didnt do anything to sort it. secondly, cleaners come storming into your room at 10am WITHOUT knocking (complete invade of privacy as myself and 3 friends all slept with our tops and bras off as the room was disgustingly hot and there was no air con or anything) and men would come in, see u half naked and just carry on. not only this but loads of our stuff kept being taken/thrown
