The hostel had great aspects, they staff always had activities and events going on and they even mad sure everyone got invited. Due to the hostel being open planned and our rooms looking on to the motorway this meant we had a lot of noise which is understandable but we also had a lot of wind making the room very... More

I spent 2 nights here and it was ideal. Swimming pool, tennis, volleyball, bar, well-equipped kitchen, free wi-fi and washing machine. Close to the city center and 5 minutes walk to the beach. Everything was clean and the service was friendly and helpful at all times. It's because of places like this that Australia gets its reputation of having some... More

Great little hostel with good facilities such as a bar, pool, kitchen facilities, dorm rooms and private rooms. We had a group of 9 so had a 7 bed mixed dorm and a private twin, both rooms were great. Ideally located near tram stop, 2 stops from centre of town and main beach.

I stayed at this hostel for around 5-6 nights. During this time I found the room, bathroom and kitchen to be nothing but clean. The cleaners would clean perhaps twice a day which kept it all in good shape. The facilities that were available were also fantastic. A swimming pool, tennis/volleyball court (with equipment at reception) , free washing machines,... More

Great hostel, free Wi-Fi and free laundry! Clean and big rooms. Hostel has its own bar with cheap drinks. Nice little swimming pool. About 15/20 minute walk to city centre and 5 minute walk to beach. Bar crawl nights for 30 dollars. Would recommend this hostel to everyone!

I loved this hostel! It is more like a holiday resort and it's very social, all of the rooms are based around the tennis court and bar. The rooms are so clean and have their own bathrooms which are cleaned very well everyday by the staff. They have nightly activities like pub quizzes and nights out so it gets everyone... More
