    Events on everyday was really good for meeting new people and getting to know the area. Really close to the centre of the city. Mix of French, German, English, Irish all around my age (22) so as I'm travelling alone it was good to get to know other backpackers as well as the people that stay for more than a few weeks. SO much cleaner than most of the hostels I've visited around Australia! Reception staff super friendly and helpful with navigating me round the city and to where my interview was!!

    Just arrived from the UK and I can say Summer House feels like a home! The staff is super friendly and events are organised every day. My room was very clean and staff members are constantly cleaning the place.

    Good hostel. Great atmosphere, lots of free activities and a super friendly staff. The wifi is really good ! And the Sunday pancakes are delicious. Negative: The bathrooms are not always clean, in one of the bathrooms the pressure of the shower is zero and the water goes from very hot to very cold. The rooms are poorly insulated from the noise of the street and the cold of winter !!!

    We stayed there for 5 days. 6 bed dorm room for 24 AUD per night. Pretty expensive for what we had. Just 3 Toilettes on one floor with around 30 people. Had to wait to get in the bathroom every day. Kitchen way to small. We had a pretty bad experience with annoying roommates, woke up many times in the night because of talking, door slaming, they turned the light on in the middle of the night. But that's not the Hostels fault.

    Long termers only, it's hard to socialize as a 'short termer'. Kitchen was super overcrowded and no one washed their dishes or cleans their room/bed which made the rooms just gross. Cockroaches were definitely present. The garden was nice but annoying that people were allowed to smoke. The showers just sucked, they weren't hot and pressure was nowhere to be found. Staff was nice though, WiFi was fine, bed was fine as well. Normally I'm not that picky, but this doesn't deserve the high rating.

    The room was dirty and dark. There were no space to leave my things, because there is a lot of long term guest (is not their problem, is the hostels) and they thing were everywhere. There were 5 toilets for a lot of people, I needed to check all of them every time I need to use them. Dirty and small stair. Small and dirty kitchen at night. The tv room was ok but when they closed the other common area, the people that were drinking came so we couldn’t finish the movie. Breakfast ok. Don’t stay!!!
