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

    Basic hostel handy for the city centre and most tourist activities. Seems to have a lot of longer term residents. Decent breakfast and clean enough.

    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.

    This was a convenient bed for the night. The staff were friendly and the bathrooms were clean, but there was stuff all over the corridors, a leak in the roof and overall the building was quite run down. I got a private room and felt it was too expensive for what I was given. I have stayed in many hostels over the years and this one really was not great.

    This hostel was mainly used by people on working holiday visas who stayed long term. If you are in that demographic this place might work for you but I don't recommend it for people trying to site see. Guests were allowed to have loud, all night drunken parties on weekends, kitchen was usually filthy. It was advertised as having free breakfast but this was only provided for 1 hour so I mostly couldn't utilise it. The room was actually very nice, spacious and cozy with beds in separate nooks.

    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.
