The Barkley by far is one of the best hostels I've stayed in while in australia! The staff are friendly and the rooms are constantly cleaned and are spacious! Situated in a great spot too so no complaints ;-)

great company and location. Staff are all eye candy, guests are polite and sociable, and the beds feel like a big marshmellow. You may need your own bowl or fork now and again but other than that it is truly majestic

Having reported bedbugs in our room we were moved to another, but it wasn't long before we realised this room was no different as we woke up itching from new bites each morning.
