4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hostel itself is very nice. The bar/lounge area is really nice and a great place to sit and relax, staff are really friendly and helpful too. The rooms are less impressive. I wouldn't say they are particularly nice but I never had any particular problems with my room. There are certainly hostels closer to the CBD but, from what... More

Stayed in a 8 bed dorm on the 5th floor and arrived to find the lift was under repair. Reception helped carry my bags up all the stairs. I found the staff to be friendly and help get you involved with activities in the hostel. Rooms were generally clean and tidy and I found the bedroom floors quiet. Bathrooms are... More

Single glazed windows made it feel like we were in the bar even though we were 3 floors above it. Other guests were noisey and playing with a football at 5am. Kitchen was disgusting. Room hadn't been dusted and chewing gym and dirty cotton bud on the window and remained on the window for our stay, even though house keeping... More

Hostel is located in a fantastic location, staff super friendly and helpful and the building itself is modern and is a very well run / clean hostel. Would recommend to all! Close to the CBD and everything you will need.

My sister and I had booked in for 3 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. Admittedly the kitchen is small, but if you clean up after yourself, everyone is more than happy to move over a bit, let you access the free gas ring, even share their food with you. A 30 second stroll to the queen vic market,... More

Our 8 bed mixed dorm room looked and smelled as though it had never been cleaned, sheets had some questionable stains too. Most of the toilets / showers on our floor seemed to always be locked, not sure if this was because they were out of order or because someone died in there. We were not impressed with the standards... More

We stayed here and got a dorm to ourselves. The wait at the service desk was a long wait but not really a big deal. We were all given security cards to get into our dorm in which none of them worked. So back downstairs to get them re-activated. Once that was done, we got in our room and there... More

Location is good that's about it, The management is terrible and it reflects on the staff, the way they talk to you makes you as if your not valued at all. Very pricey drinks and appalling customer service, The room prices are far too expensive for what you get and the service from management is a shambles. You have to... More

Warning bells started ringing because if he had written down the details of the card and also turned the card over and remembered the... More
