The kitchen was pretty dirty and all of the pans were bent out of shape and needed washing before use. It took a long long time to cook anything on the rubbish hobs they had (30 mins to cook a steak rare, and 30 mins to boil a pot of water) and some didn't work at all. The corridors outside... More

Our room was really nice, the bathromm too. Very clen and comfy. The common areas were nice too and the general atmosphere so friendly. The only bad thing is that they close the kitchen after ten as in most nomads. I really don't get why they do this considering that they recive people from all over the world with different... More

We arrived at 10pm after travelling all day.. The first thing I did was ask If there was free parking and the girl gave me directions to the underground car park. Back upstairs we went to check in and she said " oh I'm not even supposed to be here you'll have to wait" When someone then came to assist... More

The rooms were extremely clean, as were the bathrooms. The social areas made it incredibly easy to meet people and we had a wild time every night. The hammocks and jacuzzi were also a welcome change from previous hostels we stayed at.

There were small beatles all over, dead or alive. The schoolies ruined my last nights by being loud and drunk out... More

The hostel was very well located as we come for the surf festival we were very close from all activities. The place is clean and quiet inside. However, maybe it was due to the festival but the population was very young (19) and many of them partied hard. They used to stay after party at the entrance of the hostel... More

We hired a 10-bed dorm for a boys trip and the facilities, staff and atmosphere were great. The bathrooms were clean, the beds were all new and comfortable. Highly recommended for fun bookings with friends.
