    Good after Concerned Person, I did not stay at Yellow Submarine because there several louver blades for the common male & female toilets were broken and people can look through from the chicken area below up. Also the room that was allocated to us family did not a fan/air-conditioning and even not a TV. I therefore decided to leave the area the same day and hour and booked Pacific Hotel. I requested for my refund but nothing as been done until to date.

    Forced to move hostels half way through our stay. Overall hostel was filthy, facilities barely useable would definitely not stay there again. Would recommend spending that bit more on a hostel where you can enjoy your stay.

    Dirty shower, there is a kitchen but with no cups to drink of. You have to bring everything of your own, even salt. The reception staff not available while they’re supposed to be. Very quiet, you’re on your own

    Nightmare on yellow submarine..By far the worst hostel experience ever!! ~35 degrees in the room, dirty sheets, dirty equipment in the kitchen, we used the public toilets in the mext shopping centre because they weren‘t cleaned once during our whole stay. But if you want to save 2$ per night, feel free to stay here.:)

    Very disappointed, waited an hour and there was no one there to serve us. Not to mention how filthy it looked as we walked around. We ended up walked down the road to a much nicer hostel with very friendly staff...

    A filthy dump. Rubbish and junk scattered all over the old property. Its built like a shanty town. Toilet in room so bad and broken it could not be used. Covered in yellow stuff, it really is the yellow sub. And i was the only one in my wing the whole time. They don't touch the rooms. Apart from a bottom sheet the way you find the room is how it was left by the last occupant. Highly don't recommend. Ratings are not correct. Should be a 1. Get the council involved and shut the place down. Yuk.
