    Very nice place, not too big, which makes it easy to meet new people. WIFI worked quite ok. More a chill place than a party hostel, which I appreciated. Kitchen could be a bit cleaner, though.

    Small bathroom areas and completely unmonitored who enters the building. I saw a homeless person begging people inside the hostel. But overall nice place

    Very Good

    The atmosphere of the place is good. The hostel has something to do as a group every day if the week, which is great for solo travellers. The staff is frequently cleaning, but unfortunately the place itself is really run down. Stuff is constantly breaking, there's no hooks or anywhere to out your clothes or things in the shower, amd the water temperature is constantly fluctuating as you shower. From burning your skin so badly that you have to jump out, to freezing it changes every minute.

    Don’t recommend for solo travelers that are only staying for a few days, as most people are staying there for long periods of time they already have their own groups and it gets very hard to meet people. Also very hard to get any space to store your food both in the shells and the fridge because everybody already has ‘their space’. The bedrooms were not great and most of the time you have to wait to use the showers, always busy. I felt unsafe in some streets nearby, not the best looking streets.

    People steal, not so clean. Would not come back. I would definitely check out other places nearby. Travelling the east coast and staying at summer house in Brisbane and Cairns this was below their standard.
