I stayed here for 1 night and glad it was only one night! We had a private double room, which was literally 2 mattresses on the floor with a sheet on top!!! The sheet didnt even look clean. And the corridors were extremely noisy both at late hours and very early hours.

I've been travelling in Australia for 2 months and this was the absolute worst hostel I've stayed in. You could feel every spring in the bed and the bathrooms were tiny and out of order. You have to buy a cool bag to put anything in the fridge. The WiFi was free and not incredibly slow. That was a bonus.

We stayed in our camper on their car park and used the hostels facilities. First off.. everything seemed ok, pretty clean and seemed nice and laid back. First issue: literally no room in the fridge to put your food, they have 5 or 6 fridges and they are all completely full. After much prodding and pushing we eventually squeezed our... More

It backs on to a supermarket complex, and is only two blocks away from the beachside. The rooms were tidy and the beds were comfortable, didn't use the kitchen facilities much and the bathrooms were average as well (still good though).

So clean, so much space. SUCH comfortable beds, not too busy and lots of space even if it was. Shuttle bus run from the ferry & bus terminals for ease of access and in good area of town. Provides city maps and explain some good places to visit. Great nights sleep and two thumbs up here!

The hostel is in a really good, spacious building and is very clean and well kept. We were in an 8 bed, mixed dorm and the people in our room were mostly friendly and nice. The beds are all in a line along the room which is a bit different but they're not overly close together so it's not too... More

We stayed for one night only at the Foreign Exchange. Was picked up by their shuttle bus (and dropped of again) and they had a friendly service and attitude. Nice and clean hostel with roomy kitchens (no cutlery, though). Plenty of showers/bathrooms and free wifi. Also a big lounge area with tv. All in all a great place to stay.... More

I had a very nice stay at this hostel. When I emailed prior to arrival to ask if reception would still be open at 8pm, the reception guy Ben very kindly offered to pick me up from the bus station. Again, when I enquired about getting back to the bus station on departure I was again offered a free ride... More
