    Decent enough place. A few too many cliquey hippy hipsters for my liking though.

    We booked a 4 bed dorm and it was quite small. However, the mattresses were really comfy. The rest of the hostel was okay, but not really clean. Location is good, close to Cuba Street.

    so there were signs to leave shoes outside of rooms, if they smelled, makes sense, but they were in huge didn't look good at all. Maybe add shoe shelves. Also the downstairs where my room was was super dark, carpet and or painting just made it dark. My room was awkward. The bunk on top of another one, there was hardly enough room to get on the ladder ...with space from the wall.

    Such a messy (!!) hostel with lots of long term stayers who were quite taking over the place (also in the dorm).

    Never saw any staff in the 16 hours we were there. Drunk kids stumbling around the property. Kitchen was disgusting. Did not want to make any food here. Very loud. Crawl through front window to get in without a key. Never going back.
