This hostel is not clean at all. And the rooms are full of junk. the floor has never been cleaned, take a look under the bed. The walls are dirty, there is mold in the bathrooms. The hostel doesnt smell good. It is not for tourists, go there if you want to be sqiatting it while working your 9 to 5 in the city, because it looks like that more than a hostel. I would recommend other hostels like Europa Melbourne, which was wayyyyy better.

It's fine. Quite filthy, quite noisy. Free toast and coffee in the morning, though. That's nice. Overall, not a very enjoyable stay, but it's cheap.

Well well well, where do I start. Upon seeing the hostel on hostel world I thought ‘well that looks nice at a good price’… how wrong was I. I’ve slept in literal mud huts in Cambodia with mosquito nets and no door and I was happier there!The toilets… well we didn’t have any on our floor due to renovations but thank the lord they gave us some sub par Italian cuisine (dominos) to compensate. The moldy showers were certainly a high point in this hostel. COVID-19 most certainly originated here!
