    The best Hostel I‘ve ever stayed! I lived and worked in this Hostel for a few months and I enjoyed it so much. The building is not the newest but it‘s got cleaned every day from the morning until the evening. But the best part about this small hostel is the atmosphere! It‘s like a big family. I‘ve met so many interesting people there and most of the guest of funk are really open minded. The Staff is also really nice! I hope one day I‘ll come back to this hostel that became a home for me.

    The room is being cleaned everyday. However, I've noticed that public areas like the dining and living areas aren't cleaned and a little bit messy. But, overall, it was a nice experience staying in The Funkhouse. It's very convenient as it is close to the train station, supermarket, convenience stores and the tourist spots. I'd love to stay there again sometime in the future.

    I stayed at the funkhouse for a total of 152 days and it is definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff are all so friendly and it really feels like a family. Michaela and Ben who work reception are some of the most lovely and genuine people I met during my time in Australia. I can not recommend this hostel highly enough for it's great vibes and family like experience. Get ya self here and get on the rooftop for some cold beers, good times and a wicked stay!!

    I spent a weekend in this hostel and it was amazing. The hostel is totally clean, there is breakfast included which is better than in other more expensive hostels that I have been. The staff is always ready to help and the facilities are really good too.

    Loved the staff! My room was clean. The atmosphere wasn't what I was looking for. Lots of ppl who already knew each other there so it was hard fitting in (especially if you didn't speak their mother tongue). Not a bad place if you're looking for a place to sleep and leave your luggage but not one I'd choose long term for Work Visa. Great wifi connection!!
