I stayed at this hostel a month ago , and the pictures they show you on internet are completelly different from the real. The first hostel I arrived to Australia was this one and it was very disappointed. The mattress is not even a matress, showers broken, toilets dirty all day , you can hear the water pipes in your bedroom, horrible smell in all the hostel in general , crocrouches everywhere, not very inspiring to do a simple dinner. Never again staying there.
