We spent here one week. The main reason why we chose this hostel was the location, walking distance from the centre. I'm not a fan of big hostels and Chill Backpackers is not an exception... As there is party every night there is also drunk people making noise when you try to sleep. Our double room was small and actually... More

The smallest room I have ever stayed in. One person could only have their case open at once in a room for 3 people. The hostel make you make your own bed, which hadn’t been the case in any other hostels we had stayed in. The bathrooms were so scabby, continually ran out of toilet roll and were again so... More

My friend and I are travelling the east coast over the space of 2 months and are very used to hostels. This hostel has a nice rooftop area on the top floor with table tennis tables and benches which create a great social atmosphere. We really enjoyed this aspect of the hostel. However the treatment we got from the staff... More

The hostel was a good location and the staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were good especially on the terrace and the views were good. Also cheap. However I have mixed feelings regarding whether I would stay here again. The rooms were small and the kitchen messy as well as the wifi being slow. I also felt I Couldn't... More

We stayed here for only one night as needed a hostel close to the bus station for our early bus so cannot comment on the social scene but the rooms and bathroom were clean and the staff were friendly. Would probably stay again.

Chill is a great Hostel. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome. The staff are so friendly and helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to help you out! There is a very unique atmosphere there which is why I stayed so long (5 months!) The facilities are always clean. The... More

I stayed here for two days by myself and it was great. The hostel itself is quite big, the main floor has computers and a small chill area for wifi (which you have to pay for), the third floor has a big kitchen, outdoor terrace, big movie room and tables for drinking games and such and the fourth floor has...

Don't use the cyber cafe here if you are planning to back up photos to Facebook, Google+ or similar. If you are using your own computer, you will find that the WiFi is too weak for it. If using their computers, the security is set too high to allow it - if you are lucky enough to get a machine... More
