    I was allowed to make the booking late but when I arrived the hostel reception appeared closed. There was no obvious contact available so I left in search of another place to stay. Two days later I stayed again and was advised I had an outstanding $13.22 for the booking. With no cash available my passport was held as I complained I didn't even have a bed that night. No understanding or admission of fault.

    It's ok! a broken window, not so clean, and that's all. The rest is great. People are nice! Specially the girl from the UK. The sreet is noisy during the day but in the night is fine. It's spacious, it has a kitchen 24 hours, a big TV with Netflix, a big space for storage and big fridges. You can also do the laundry for 8 $.

    The hostel was pretty good! But there was one outstanding aspect….and her name is Naomi. Caring, loving I’d go as far as saying: wife material! Blessed were the days I got to return from a hard days work and see a cheerful face to greet me at the reception or on the stairs, hallways etc. During the staffs relentless pursuit of delivering on the backpackers promise to treat everyone as family, Naomi takes a few steps further and delivers on every way possible. If you ever have the pleasure of enjoying her pr

    The toilets and showers are grim and I mean grim, mold on the ceilings leaking pipes and handles falling off when trying to use the shower or sink. Kitchen isnt the worst ive seen but not great. Storage to put your food is always full up, so they have a table where you can put your food and my stuff got stolen within half an hour of it being there lesson learned I guess. Lockers for the dorms have the hinges busted off so use at your own risk! For the price it does the job I guess.Staff are nice

    Infested by cockroaches, i even found them in my bed, there a massive water leak in one of the bathrooms (3rd floor) with continuous water flowing, the hot water was inconsistent and general maintenance was low. Staff was nice enough and people were nice, but in all honesty, the conditions of this place is only acceptable in countries cheaper and that are less developed, this was simply not acceptable for an Australian hostel

    Is one the worst hostel that I ever had been. We were there just for one night in a mixed 4 bedroom. The room was disgusting and they didn’t give us the correct number of the room. The toilets were with pee and dirty. They are not using any Covid protocol at all. Never again.
