    This is a really nice living hostel if you're going to hunker down, or stay while looking for a sharehouse. Good social vibes, but not rowdy like some of the cbd hostels, and with enough space that you're not tackling people to get ready in the morning or cook. It's also in a really nice location with parks, pubs, and cafes nearby, and sort of equidistant from the beach and cbd. I came expecting to stay a week, and have continued to extend. Definitely would recommend!

    I stayed in the 4 bed female only dorm and was impressed with the space and number of facilities. I had lovely girls in my dorm, and the owner was super accommodating and friendly :)

    Would recommend this hostel if you’re looking for somewhere a bit more long-term. Mostly workers so it’s a really chill & respectful vibe. I was in a 4 bed dorm & it was really spacious. Wifi could be better but you can make do. Also very clean :)

    Nice location. Can walk into the city in about 45m, most of the way through the botanical gardens and parks. Or get the tram from just outside the hostel. Kitchen usually a mess - somewhat expected in a backpacker hostel.

    This place is definitely chronically understaffed. Reception hours are officially 8:30-5 with a two hour period in the middle of the day where reception is closed. So in theory the reception is only open for around 6 hours a day. In reality there only appears to be one staff member so it's a matter of whether they're at the desk or not. There are policies around washing your own dishes etc but with no staff presence these policies are of course impossible to enforce. Dirty kitchens :(
