    I love staying here! It is so spacious, the murals around the place really are awesome. The staff were very helpful and friendly and I met some neat people here, even though I only stayed a night. My room was comfortable and the place very clean. The Mount has great nightlife, the beach is only 2 blocks away and they have free surf boards for guests use.. definitely will be back again and will spread the word to friends that this is the hostel to stay at when in the Mount!

    Perfectly located next to the heart of the mount, it's super easy to walk right into town or the beach. The staff is incredibly friendly, the kitchen and common areas are constantly being cleaned and well maintained, the areas themselves are massive. The beds are comfortable and spacious with great storage space. I stayed at mount backpackers and left after one night, I stayed here for over a month. Need a job? They are the guys, they had me working within a week of being there, felt like home:)

    Highest endorsement for this joint. Brilliant atmosphere, mix of long termers and short termers, the long termers all friendly as anything and easy to make some mates. Bottle-o is right across the road, Maccas next door, 7 minutes walk to beach and about the same to first pub on the strip. Staff all friendly as anything as well. Defs a great place to crash, will myself be staying here again next trip to the Mount.

    Loved staying here for the night. It has a great atmosphere, the staff are super friendly and great facilities - everything you need in a hostel. If you cant get a park at the back of the hostel, there is free parking the street over which is still very convenient and safe. I would 100% come back here again.

    Decent property with a fantastic location. The beds were quite short. There was only one toilet/shower downstairs for multiple dorm rooms to share which was frustrating. The upstairs showers weren't the best either, hard to get changed without getting your clothes wet. Decent value for money so I was happy with my stay despite the above issues.

    Decent hostel in a great location with onsite and really close offsite free parking. Overall facilities are fine, hostel is clean and staff are helpful the only downside is there are not enough toilets and showers for the amount of guests.

    I and my friends had not the best time in this place. The hostel is nice but staff was quite dry. They seemed to want us out as soon as possible and were bothered by our prece se when checking out. If staff changed, I would consider going there again. Also my friend lost his jumper and they didn't help.
