Cloud 9 is a bad hostel flanked by a range of better options. The location is convenient to the Roma Street train and bus station, but that is about the only positive thing. The price is about the same as the other hostels on the strip, or slightly higher. However, the beds are terrible (smelly, dirty, squeaky), the dorm rooms... More

Our room was a huge mess and really filthy, we even found blood and fungi on our matesses! The staff was really unfriendly and preffered talking to friends than check us... More

I think everything was said before! My room was stinky ("you'll get use to it" said the other guests to me when I arrived!), the carpet was old, marked, the matresses looked too old aswell... One poor window on the ceiling, quiet impossible to reach and no air coming inside. The air con, too cold. A guy came into our... More

What a joke! More like a prison than a hostel. Website advertises "5 star rated bed mattresses" and "brand new hostel, clean and modern with quality beds" etc etc. rubbish!!! After wading our way through rubbish in our dorm we found our beds in a back room with no ceiling light or windows. Mattresses had blood piss and [--] all... More

This hostel is an absolute joke!! I don't even know where to begin. It is by far the dirtiest place i have ever stayed in. The rooms stink to high heaven. I think I saw them get 'cleaned' once the whole time I was there (a week) and by cleaned I mean someone came in and hoovered a tiny patch... More

I've never actually written a review on trip advisor before but I specifically joined so I could review this awful place. Firstly it's the dirtiest place I've ever stayed, the room was dirty to the point of absolutely stinking! You'd wake up in the mornings and had to leave straight away because the smells so bad. There's absolutely no space... More

Dirty,dank and disgusting. Mental asylum for the criminally insane. The worst backpackers I have ever stayed in. The room was really dirty, the staff at the reception were arrogant and unhelpful. The rules of the hostel were ridiculous. The facilities sub standard. The clientele this place attracts should be locked up. The manager was pathetic. Pay a tiny bit more... More

When we arrived it was like that horrible moment you're on holiday and the coach is doing drop offs to each hotel and when you pull up to a nasty one you're thinking 'please not me please not me'... its the worst looking building on a street on pretty decent looking hostels, maybe even the worst appearance of a hostel...
