Free luggage storage. Woolworths... More

I stayed at Civic for a total of 3 nights and fell in love with the place. The staff is so friendly and treated me like family. I checked in with the owner and she walked me through the entire hostel and introduced me to people (very helpful since I'm a solo traveler). My room was clean, had AC, it's... More

The common areas and kitchen were spotless and the staff were so friendly and helpful, the negatives of my stay were exclusively due to my room and, frankly, bad luck. After hearing it had won awards for its cleanliness I was disappointed my the state of my room. I ended up in a twin-share even though it was advertised as... More
