Non-smoking environment not observed, windows are open because its australia and you need the breeze, but that makes it come with the smell of weed and cigarettes every single night. Quiet hours never observed, expect a realistic curfew of 1:30 AM on weeknights. Pretty good kitchen facilities and okay staff. Would not reccomend.

Really liked the hostel. Only the ‘renting’ of the plates and cutlery and the horrible mattress and pillow were the downside. Very nice people who stayed there and very lowkey and small. Great kitchen with loads of burners and good fridges. Would highly recommend staying here. Also in a nice area if you like vintage shopping.

The location was ok, close to South Bank which is a nice area but a bit of a trek to the bus station. The pool and outside area of the hostel is really nice, and the kitchen is big and cleaned regularly. However, you have to request plates which was a bit odd. The staff are all really nice and helpful. The dorms itself are not nice. There’s no air con which makes the rooms extremely hot at night. There’s a lot of long term guests living at this hostel. I think everyone else in my room was there long term and the room smelt bad and there wasn’t much space to put belongings. My dorm mates also kept leaving the door open at night (presumably because of the heat) which was both unsafe and unpleasant. Overall, I didn’t like the vibe here and wasn’t comfortable.
