We first checked in because we had a voucher for one night but we could only use this voucher if we would check in for two nigths. As we had to pay the second night we chose a very cheap 10 bed dorm. Well, I thought it was disgusting but maybe I am just not a goog backpacker ;) After... More

I stayed in a room, upgraded to a 6 bed en suite dorm because they mucked up y booking, it was plus 30 degrees with no windows - was worse than the larger dorms. Fan did nothing to cool it down. My friend in a 12 bed dorm had efficient air con and a velux window. Management was pretty crap... More

We booked an 8 sleepers mixed dorm for 1 night and it was dreadful. Arrived in the room assigned there weren't any available beds, every single one of them was filled with dirty clothes and other people's stuff and you couldn't walk on the floor because it was full of garbage. We talked with the receptionist who assured us that... More

This isnt a place you should pay to be. This is a place you should volunteer yourself for if you are into suffering and experimentation of human endurance. Or you just like existing in squalor. Whatever. Yha is just up the road...do yourself a favour and keep walking past cloud 9.

This place is absolutely horrible, air condition in the room that actually didn't work. dirt everywhere, bad smell at the entrance, ants in the kitchen, I found bed bugs in my room and the staff was completely indifferent at the problem, very rude! There has been a storm that ruined some rooms so they relocated me in another room lot... More

Washing machine, dryer. Roof top with really nice view & BBQ. You have to pay for the wifi but... More

The worse hostel experience I have ever had. Cockroaches in our shower and bugs everywhere in the kitchen, holes in the walls and ceilings... need I say more. This hostel needs to be removed from the guide book I bought.

Sheets are stinking. Because it smells so bad they keep the doors open but people/anyone!!! can come in and out of the rooms all... More

I've never written a review for anywhere before but this hostel has shocked me. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm for $24. Looked my room up online afterwards and turns out they've charged be $5 more. Just to clarify, I wasn't expecting the Hilton when I arrived. I know in hostels you expect noise but here it was ridiculous.... More

Cheap hostel but for good reason. Mould/damp on ceiling above bed, corridor smells, no blanket offered so cold at night, girls showers only have curtain with no door so paranoid someone was going to walk in by accident and generally just run down and falling apart. Staff were very friendly but that was the only good point. Definitely worth paying... More
