Its 10 minute walk to southbank which is another 5 mins from city centre. Which i believe is very close. To make it easier they give you... More

Compared to the real budget options this hostel was well worth the extra few dollars! Great Westend location in walking distance to South Bank. Main thing was the space in the room - own balcony, ensuite bathroom for the room, heaps of floor space, fridge and mirror in the room, clean. Can't ask for more! Staff were all very helpful... More

No parking, no soap, NO SLEEP!! The noise level in and outside of the hostel was way over the top, even for a backpackers hostel. The shower was dodgy at best and the bed squeaked almost as loudly as the drunk people running up and down the corridors all night. Yes, I know this is the standard for hostels, but... More

This was my 1st stop in Australia and I liked this place. Location was great as had everything you need in the West end but was only a short walk in to th CBD. The bar has daily happy hours and this place also has a pool and half basketball court.

I've been twice in this place. The first time it was quite ok and I returned there because I liked the location in West End next to Southbanks, what was defenetly a mistake. I stayed in the same room as the first time and I'm absolutly shure, that they never cleaned the bathroom during the two weeks when I wasn't... More

If I could describe this hostel with one word, it would be AWFUL and I could honestly say it was the worst hostel I stayed in whilst I was in Oz! The general atmosphere is very groupie and if you're traveling by yourself then avoid this place like the plague as know body gives you the time of the day... More
