I booked a dorm bed and ended up being put in the guest house next door.
So I have no idea if this were actual dorms or family rooms. In any case the rooms were massive, beautiful and had even a flat screen TV with DVD player!
Very comfy beds.
The kitchen and dining area there were really nice and a basic breakfast was included.
I missed the pancake breakfast in the hostel though :-(
Bathrooms were spacious, not 100% clean but still good.
Seems like the whole place is not very well organized. During my 3 night stay I had to move once which was ok. Other people I met there have been moved even more. Having worked in a hostel myself I know this can happen occassionally. But if it happens that often it's usually due to lack of organization.
Staff was nice. But service poor. Would have been nice if there had been someone to give me a hand with my luggage. I had to struggle my way up the stairs and back down on my own after being moved after just 1 night.
Walking distance to the CBD. Fritzroy is well worth exploring, too.
Would stay here again, but not necessarily. Other hostels might be worth being checked out as well. Again I got trouble with the star rating here. It is not an average but not yet a very good. It is a GOOD. So once again I go for the 3 stars.
