I spent 4 nights in total in a private 4-bed en-suite room. Check-in was quick and easy, staff were very helpful. The room/bathroom was clean as were the halls and facilities. Great bar & pool area (probably the best pool I've seen at a hostel) just a short walk from our room. Laundry facilities weren't great but got the job... More

I stayed here for a week in September. I was a bit worried because I'd read a few bad reviews and didn't really know what to expect. But when I got there the staff were really friendly and helpful, even managed to check me in early which was amazing because I'd flown overnight and was shattered. The rooms were and... More

Good location, good price, clean rooms, (mostly) good facilities, and overwhelmingly impersonal. My stay at Melaleuca on Mitchell was generally pleasant, but there were a few avoidable situations that soured my stay. Firstly the the kitchen was unpredictably shut for cleaning whilst I was halfway through making my lunch. I left the room, and came back a couple of minutes... More

This was my first experience of a hostel and of Australia. Staff were really friendly and knew their stuff. Always seemed to be something going on in the bar and the bar was always full of people. In a great location, right in the centre of most things. Only down side would be there was a lack of power points... More

I arrived at 2am on a Saturday and the parties on Mitchell St were still on (there are heaps of pubs next to the hostel), so you could hear some noise inside your room. The beds were weird because some of them have a plastic cover, but soft enough to get you to sleep eventually. The bar is good, with... More

I recently backpacked around Australia and this was definitely my favourite hostel. The room is basic, simply with beds. The bathroom was down the hall but good. But what I loved about this hostel was that it was so much fun! It's in an awesome location, right in the middle of Mitchell street. There's a pool and bar which sells... More

Stayed here for one night before picking up a campervan. We had a room down the back with ensuite. It was clean and quiet. Kitchen not the best. Staff friendly and helpful. Did not use any of the other amenities

This place is geared towards drinking and partys. The bar is always loud and it does a great deal on cheap beer. If thats not what you are looking for this wont be the hostel for you. The kitchen is terrible (some hobs dont work and it lacks the main utensils you need to cook). The pool is great to... More
