    Only stayed one night here, bed was comfy, showers were clean, water was hot. Kitchen and common areas were clean and a nice chill out space. Would stay again.

    Even though there was a cockroach in our room! The stay was comfortable enough my mattress had seen better days and was a bit dipped and the protector was exactly spotless but it did the trick for a cheap stay!

    Overall Joe's Place Backpacker provides a very good combination of phenomenal location and very good price. It is not party hostel,so it is quite in the evenings. The privacy of the guests is highly valued. The public areas could be cleaned a bit more regularly, the rooms are sufficiently clean The kitchen is spacious and clean.

    Wow this hostel was awful. The rooms were okay, but the bathrooms were dirty and disgusting. But the thing that REALLY annoyed me - there is NO cutlery - no plates, no knives, no forks. I mean what the hell? I asked a girl and she said you have to bring your own. I'm a freaking backpacker - I don't carry around a freaking plate or knive... kinda disappointed

    I also booked a transfer to the airport and when my paid-for transport didn't arrive, staff were indifferent and didn't assist me. after booking on the same site, I had to take a taxi to the airport, or miss my flight.

    Dirty, no storage, communal lock down at 10pm, the tiny lockers are filled with cockroaches (as is the whole hostel). Would recommend if you only have $16 in your account - otherwise just pay a little more for somewhere waaaaaay better

    The place was dirty + dingy. The showers had mold in them and cockroaches. The dorm room also had cockroaches and I'm pretty sure a mouse because a hole was chewed through my bag + my trail mix, when I got up the next morning . I only stayed the one night, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Checked in at around 8 or 9PM, pouring with rain and 2 suitcases. Wasnt shown to my room or even offered help with suitcases as a matter of courtesy. Noticed dead cockroaches on 2 or 3 occasions. No lockers for personal belongings. I appreciate these are hostels and not hotels, but there were a few basics that were missing. And cockroaches shouldn't be there, regardless of the type of accommodation.
