    Manly is a bit far from Brisbane CBD as it shown in map expected. I feel good to drive there. Hostel mates are great. Variety, dynamic, energetic. However, there is no locker for temporary resident. I feel much better to store valuables in car. And, toilet is a bit messy. It is not suitable for person who have to see everything is clear and clean in toilet.

    The Deck bar and bistro next door had great food deals. Rooms were not locked and didn't seem very secure. Can't argue with the price though. Was able to have a bed, a surf & turf and pint next door for a total of $45! Plenty of parking out the back.

    Terrible security. Back door didn’t lock at all. I went to the bathroom at night and when I came put there was a man in the hall (clearly on d****) who had wandered in off the street and asked me repeatedly if he could sleep on the floor next to my bed. I told him no and locked the door to the room but then another person staying in the room returned and when I let him in, he let in the man from the street who behaved inappropriately towards me and my other female friend. Very disappointed.

    My experience wasn't good, we booked for four nights, but only stayed one. The place didn't look like the pictures, the furniture in the kitchen and in the common area were in bad shape, and the kitchen was dirty. The room didn't have curtains, so the sun woke us up at 5am, and it was very hot with no air conditioner, just a ceiling fan. We told the person in charge about all this, he offered us to change to a better room, however, the place didn't reach our expectations, we left with no refund.

    It was an ok place to stay the night though I did feel unsafe with the people staying in my room and the drunk people outside, it was dark, poorly lit and dirty in the common room, messy too. The staff, of which I met only one st the desk who checked me in was friendly though a bit annoyed that my flight was delayed and not understanding. The door on the room had no lock and the bathroom was not clean. I was definately happy to leave EARLY in the morning. I slept very uneasily, the bed was metal

    I have been robbed of my car keys and wallet and i had my stuff secured in a locker. I have reported to police and the hostel owner also kicked me out of the hostel saying i was giving him problems. I believe the hostel stuff members have something to do with my wallet and keys being stolen. ABSOLUTELY AVOID THAT PLACE!!!
