This has to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in over my 9 months of traveling. It has everything; free breakfast, free wifi throughout the hostel, hundreds of recent movies, free gym, a/c and best of all friendly staff! The hostel is in a great location, the train station a 2 minute walk with great train lines around... More

I heard of this hostel off a passer by as I was in need of a place to stay, so I thought id check in to try it out. On arrival the staff were friendly and the place seemed to have a buzz about it. The people I met were friendly and welcoming and made me fit in straight away.... More

I have stayed at brados on and off for the past year of my working visa, always finding it a great base to come back to and often seeing familiar faces. I first booked in to only stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for months. I was working in Sydney so it was the perfect base. So close... More

Well when you first arrive the staff are very helpful with bringing the bags up the stairs to the rooms. Everyone is very nice and said hello to me in the common areas, great party's and events were organised and super location for an easy walk home. If you want to party late in the kitchen you can because it's... More

Rooms Are vacuumed once a week. Cockroaches everywhere. Human faeces in the shared showers.. Always dirty. No soap. Staff are very unprofessional & rude... More

Stayed here for three nights. Rooms were dirty and the bathrooms very unclean. They looked like they belonged in a prison. That said the rates include free breakfast and the place is bouncing every night almost like a disco but only till about 10 so you can easily get to sleep.

Had a great time, met some good people & the hostel was in a perfect place to go out with the rest of the backpackers to party! Was being refurbished when I was there so some parts were great & new, while other needed looking at. Great spot if you're looking to party & meet plenty others after the same... More

Rooms were absolutely filthy, cockroach infestations are clearly huge issue, plates of mouldy food left in the room under my bed from previous people.. A few boys in our room had problems with bed bugs and were bitten from head to toe. Staff were unhelpful, and after mentioning the total absence of so called 'cleaners', were told by one girl...

Cockroaches everywhere due to the rooms never being cleaned. Arrived to a room full of people's previous rubbish including dirty plates and open bottles of jam and peanut butter under the bed. When we complained about the large amount of roaches and uncleanliness of the room there was still nothing done to change this. Location is in red light district..... More
