    Superb

    Great location, great stay. Free pancake breakfast. Cons- no air con. Free Wifi only in common area. A lot of long term stayers that were quite cliquey and hard to break into as a solotraveler. But, overall, would definitely stay again.

    Wish there was a fan or stronger aircon for warm summer nights. And better soundproofing for noisy activities below. Apart from that, it’s alright.

    Fabulous

    A perfect first stop if you’re starting your working holiday. Incredible location, events on every night but it’s very much an option, mostly a nice chilled vibe in the communal areas. It would be soo much better if they had air con in all the rooms as over the heatwave my dorm couldn’t get much sleep. Awesome chill out areas; one with a work vibe and one with a relaxed/movies vibe. The kitchen is great you can cook anything and keep your stuff. I booked for 2 nights and have stayed a week!

    Very Good

    15-20 minute walk from Southern Cross station; 3 grocery stores nearby; a/c in dorm room not working; beds’ lights too small; hardly any room on shelves or in refrigerators to store your food; no lockers in room
