    We upgraded to a private when we arrived at the hostel. It’s close to two major train stations and the tram which makes it really easy to get around. The rooms are fairly small and a little dated but were clean, along with the bathrooms. The kitchen was manic so we did not cook there - not enough fridges for the number of people staying there. They also charged us to store our luggage during the day.

    Pros: Large, clean and separate male / female bathrooms, 24 hr reception, large kitchen, close to train stations and tram Cons: Luggage storage is via paid lockers and very expensive. Dorms were dated with squeaky metal bunks

    Facilities a bit shabby round the edges, feel hostel could do with a repaint and a bit of a refurb especially in the rooms, windows in room were drafty and allowed a lot of noise in. But that is the only bad stuff. The staff are amazing, the perm reception guys in particular, very friendly, happy and helpful people. The hostel has a really good vibe, the events put on by the hostel are regular and worthwhile to meet people and have a laugh. Location is pretty good. No complaints.

    Room was messy (due to other guests) staff should check and give a polite word to keep it clean. No A/C+Australian summer = sweating face off. More could be done to create a better atmosphere for meeting people.

    Not the best, not the worst. Pros Location is really central - close to the bus station and flinders st station. Close to degrades and hosier lane too. Just a fifteen min walk away. Cheap breakfast Cons WHY are there no plugs next to the beds?! Can get freezing at night Not the cleanest hostel I’ve ever stayed in There were only two toilets and two showers per floor for females. So bathrooms get pretty busy in the morning
