They do not provide towels or leave a deposit, the reception is not 24 hours, the number left for extended hours is not answered, the beds do not have curtains, the mattress is not very soft, the pillow is uncomfortable, the rooms are not clean, the entrance to the hostel is open to the public.

Rooms did have lockers which is a plus, but could hear the downstairs bar from all corners of the place all night Decent sized kitchen and nice balcony with benches But no social aspect whatsoever, majority of people are long term stayers. Dead vibes. Rooms are hot, not great smelling. Unisex showers and toilets which aren’t dirty but still not ideal, you’ll hear it all.

Cheap hostel. Lonely if travelling alone. Lots of long term stayers who aren’t friendly. Loud music across weekend. Generally worn and dodgy looking place. Could be made very nice if upgraded the inside. Terrace area pleasant, but could use fairy lights. Staff could be friendlier. Decent air con in rooms and lockers which lots of other hostels in auz don’t have. Toilets and showers are would be nicer if gendered as a preference.
