This hostel was in the centre of the shopping district and a great location! The kitchen was a good size and has a balcony on 2 floors which are good to have! There is no fans in the rooms and the air con isn't very good at all which makes it hard to sleep. Overall it is a good hostel

Location is great. I had an 8 bed dorm, spacious enough. Not enough plugs, not enough lockers for everyone. Kitchen was dirty and saw quite a few creepy crawlies. Not the best hostel I ve ever stayed at.

This hostel is centrally located and the staff were friendly but it's a bit grimy and run down and could definitely be cleaner. We stayed for three nights in a four-bed dorm which was okay but the bunk beds were very squeaky and the curtains were hanging off the rail so didn't close properly. The bathroom was basic and had...

The room was dirty, our bed sheets were covered in stains ranging from blood stains to dirt. No aircon, two plug sockets between eight of us. We had to ask three times for our sheets to be changed and everytime was met with rudeness. The staff didn't know what day of the week it was. Didn't feel safe at all,... More

This hostel is perfectly situated if you want to be in the centre of the city. The staff are very friendly and helpful but unfortunately, as is the case in every Base I've stayed in throughout Australia and NZ, the other guests don't take a blind bit of notice of the signs asking people to be quiet late at night....

Stayed here in July 2015. We had a private room which was nice and quiet. The room was very clean and warm (it was kinda cold outside so the warm was a nice suprise). Also, the staff was lovely and helpful! And I even got a delicious Cupcake for my Birthday! :D Thank you again for such a nice suprise!... More

Noisy and dirty. Would not recommend staying here even if it is just a place to get some sleep. Hostel allowed people to play music in the kitchen through to the early hours of the morning. Walls are very thin so you can hear everything. The only good thing about this place is the brown hair lady at reception who... More

I was booked in with another female for 2 nights from 1st to 3rd June. We were welcomed by a lovely lady who checked us in. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a 4 dorm which was close to the toilets. The amenities were all clean and the kitchen was a good size to cater for lots of different... More

We didn't have high expectations from a hostel but this one was by far the worst we stayed in. Luckily we only spent one night there...Rooms are very dark and dirty. Kitchen was just awful with dirty greasy pans and tables, but when we saw toilets and showers we were horrified..dirty , smelly, the toilet was blocked and stank ...... More
