    I loved this place because it's just outside the city and not too hectic. The people are good, it's really clean, and you can party if you want or just have a quiet one in. Washers and dryers actually work and are decent price ($4 each) you can walk into the main city in about 20 minutes, or take an e scooter in about 5 minutes (only like $3 ) and West End is already such a cool neighborhood and it has everything you'd need right at your doorstep. One of the better hostels I've stayed in

    The staff was so friendly and helpful with any questions I had. Everyone staying there was super nice and would all eat together throughout the day. Bathrooms were nice, rooms had plenty of space, and the pool was a great place to cool down from the hot Aussie sun. Very centrally located and easy access to everything you could need. Would definitely recommend!

    Enjoyed my stay here. The shuttle bus was useful as the city was a bit of a walk. Female showers were clean

    Great place to be. The place is well-taking care and the people who stay there are top quality. I think it is a hostel for people who are temporarily working in Australia at the year gap. So you easily find smart and intelligent people there. The staff was supeeeeeeeerb ! helpful on all maters.

    Overall a good place to stay. Lots of very friendly people, had more of a laid back hipster vibe than your typical hostel, very easy to meet people even though there are quite a few long term stayers. Very nice pool and hammocks, also a very cute cat. The rooms are often left open and there aren’t lockers in the room so be careful with your stuff. Would recommend though, probably the best atmosphere in the area and not too far to walk to south bank! :)

    I honestly don’t know where to start ... it was just shocking we checked out in 30 seconds. We were two 22 year old girls placed in a room with 6 drunk men who were my dads age. They were clearly staying there for a long time. The room was horrible it was dirty, bugs and cobwebs everywhere. People had their own bug repellents. It was messy. There were just 4 standing fans and a extension cord hanging on the wall. The lady at the reception was lovely, we got our money back and went elsewhere.

    This hostel was absolutely disgusting. A friend and I arrived at night and checked out within 30 seconds of checking in. We are both young girls and booked to stay in an 8 bed room. We were put in a room with 6 middle aged men who also seemed very intoxicated and were uncomfortable to be around. The room also looked like the men were living there as the ther were things everywhere, clothes, food, etc. There was also bug all over the place and many cobwebs on the celing.
