It used to be a fire station before. We stayed in a double room on the ground floor for only a night. As the backyard was just outside our door, it was extremely noisy throughout the night because it's a Friday night. The room was quite small and dirty. Extra AUD4 would be charged for parking per night. Not suitable... More

I spent 3 months in this fantastic hostel while I was working nearby to fund my travels. The staff were welcoming, funny and kind from the get go! They foster a really great community atmosphere in the hostel by organising different theme nights throughout the week (curry, pizza, movie night) and also regular competitions for ping pong and pool. It's... More

Best backpacker I ever been. The price is high (178$ a week for a 12 dorm) but you definitely get the best. - Two big kitchens fully equipped (fridge room, toaster, tap of boiling water...) they provide you a bag with your own plate, fork, glass... So no dirty dishes every where. You also get a locker to put your... More

First I stayed here for a few days and when I left I knew I had to come back! It is such an amazing, fun and relax place! There is space for everybody, the people who want to drink and get wasted and the people who just want to relax and see movie and read books! I would definitely recommend... More

Have stayed in this hostel for nearly 3 months now, it's my home away from home, made so many friends. Saying goodbye to people is never easy but everyone in this hostel says it's not goodbye it's see you later. My motto I'm carring forward on the rest of my travels. Parties are always AWSOME. Ofs never fails to disappoint.... More

The old fire station is a gym for life, it isn't a hostel. It is the harbour of a lot of traveler with their own story, like you. I think that who read a review on tripadvisor need to know, a little bit, which are the reasons for going there . And it's hard to explain because this place is... More
