    The atmosphere is really great, nice areas to hang out and the bathrooms were cleaned daily, which was really good. I have to say though, the no Australians policy is a bit ridiculous. I missed that part when organising the booking, the girl in the reception was slightly rude during the check-in, so I went to the rules to check if I had done something wrong and I saw it. My partner is Aussie and luckily despite being rude this wasn't an issue with our booking.

    Private room, toilets and shower were all nice and clean! Couldn't complain about those really :) Kitchen is really quite small and we felt we had to cook at 4:30-5 to be able to have any space. Our food kept getting moved round the fridge and cupboard areas etc and our friends in the hostel had the same issue (and had food taken out the fridge and left out + cupboard just went missing). Perhaps some of the long terms felt they owned the place? Seemed people could just smoke anywhere (or it was just une

    The 'Private single' (jail cell) room should be turned in to a common area as there are no windows in the room, I had to check out after 2 days. Staff were sweet and refunded the rest of my stay. Chancing it with that room? Other than that, nice for 'Somewhere to Stay' for a few days

    Location is a little out of the way, West End is nice enough and you can get a bus into the city or it’s a 20 minute walk to South Bank. Kitchen is tiny with no cupboards, everyone puts their stuff under the bench space… I didn’t cook in this hostel. I got home at 2am one morning and didn’t need my key at all, just walked straight into my room from the street which didn’t feel safe. No aircon and broken/noisy fan so roommates used to leave door open. Lots of stuff in my room that seemed to be left behind fr
