    Very Good

    IF your looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful this place is great. They have a shuttle bus, pool etc. My negatives are the place wasn’t the best place I have stayed, the room was cold at night and was surprised at the $10 deposit for blankets. The staff I didn’t find overly friendly unfortunately so spent as little time there as possible as didn’t get that warm, welcoming vibe I have had at other places I have stayed.

    Creepy crappy internet, wifi sucks, it's not easy for job hunters. No plates/cups/cutlery in the kitchen. You need to pay deposit for them, as well as for blankets (it's cold these nights). I was feeling offensed with the deposit treatment. Good thing is shower room for girls.

    The room itself was the most disgusting place we've stayed in our 6 months of travelling. Walked into a pong of a mix of stinking cheesy feet mixed with body odour. Obviously people live here for a while but the room was a tip and dirty. One girl said she'd been there for 3 weeks and never saw them clean past the doorway... disgusting. I literally couldn't sleep as every breath was toxic. Walk to the city was about 35 mins, not bad location.

    Where to begin.. possibly the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. There is no cleanisness at all. I opened my room door & the smell of something deceased hit my nose. The rooms never get cleaned. Only the bins emptied every few days. The kitchen is disgusting I had to eat out. Staff are about as helpful as a sieve. Beds are so uncomfortable. Dont get me wrong for $18 a night.. what do you expect. 110% pay the extra money & stay well away from this filthy one.
