    Kitchen is a bit small but other than that I had a very nice stay. Good location, nice and helpful staff. Enough space even in the 16 bed dorm plus lockers (need to have you own padlock). Rooms were quiet even tho there were people drinking in the common area.

    Great location! Bathrooms were absolutely spotless. Older building so some dirty parts but overall pretty clean. Also there is no outlets by each bed. So be prepared to fight over the outlet with your roommates or charge your stuff in the common room. This hostel also has a lot of long termers so a lot of people already know each other. Would stay again if there was nothing else lol

    Location cannot be beaten if you're a tourist. Close to station and in the free tram zone, travelling around the CBD is a breeze. The weekly activities the management hosts (like Wine & Cheese night or Movie night) deserve special mention as they were a great addition to my trip. Don't expect super fancy rooms though; you get what you pay for. All in all, well worth your time!

    Good security as each floor requires a key to access. Make sure you have a thick padlock, otherwise the lockers can still be opened. Good location, good staff, clean place. Breakfast is average toast and cereal and tea and coffee available 24/7. Rooms were a bit warm even with the ducted air conditioning. Good wifi.
