    The place is affordable if you call directly. Efforts to divert me to are inflationary. This was disappointing as I saved a lot of money by cutting out the middleman. Staff were respectful and friendly. More blankets in winter should be made available. Proximity to train stations. Park, for outlets and waterfront. Police and security presence added to piece of mind.

    I stayed in the single room and when i arrived I could tell the room wasn't wiped down properly and the floor wasn't vacuumed. However when i mentioned the issues to staff they got the cleaner in next day to clean it properly, so that was good. The facilities are okay. Wish there was a bit more options with bins in the kitchen. Everything would go into one bin but there could be a lot of recycling happening too. Room was a bit stuffy but just opened the window to let air flow in.

    I decided to take a punt based upon the pictures from the site and positive reviews. It’s a great location and the staff when they where there, seemed good. Our room was fine as it had a clean bed and towels. Maybe it was because we stayed over the long Anzac weekend, but there was a severe lack of cleaning in the toilets and showers….. Bring your own cleaning supplies and toilet paper. The kitchen was alright and pretty much everything you need cooking wise. Good price, awesome location.

    The hostel has an extremely weird atmosphere, most people were either off their face, no backpackers. I spent about an hour in here before i left, didn't feel safe at all, especially with leaving my belongings.

    Rooms were very tight and not that clean . TV remote didn’t work. Kitchen smells and no one cleans up after themselves. Dirty plates and doorpost and pans all over the sink and kitchen. In the morning, there are dirty plates, plates full of half food, beer bottles and trash all over the TV room and dining area. Pigeons come in kitchen eating off floors. Very unsanitary. I would not recommend them. The staff does not enforce any rules. .

    I’m not sure why this hostel is rated as high as it is. The bathrooms were never cleaned. Someone used a towel to wipe their butt that was on the ground for multiple days. The rooms smelt disgusting, our room was never vacuumed and full of homeless. Not a place for backpackers at all. Avoid if you can.
