    This hostel is in a great location by the botanical gardens! The staff are really friendly and helpful especially during the corona dramas right now. The hostel is so clean it’s amazing! House keeping should get a raise! And the bathrooms on the 2nd floor were so nice! Could be improved with free WiFi and I didn’t find it that social but that could also be because we’re living in a pandemic!

    Having paid in excess of $100 for a private room in this hostel I was left thoroughly disappointed. The room was stifling hot despite all 3 windows being opened by myself when I arrived. When I mentioned this to staff they were unapologetic and offered no solution - it wasn’t even that hot on the day that I was there. This must be an incredibly common issue. Ludicrous that there was a heater and electric blanket available but no fan or air conditioning.

    Bunks are the squeakiest beds I have ever slept in. The top bunks have no rails on and were not against the wall in the room I stayed. Also the top bunk is super close to the ceiling and I smashed my head on the roof when getting in the first time in the dark as a ledge jutted out right above it. Door didn’t appear to lock on the room. People playing loud music in the communal area on the second floor until well into the early hours. Staff never ask how your stay was. Wouldn’t book again.
