Stayed 2 nights in May 2013 and had a great experience! Was in a mixed 4 bed dorm and although our room faced the street, with the windows closed it was super quiet. You can hear people in the halls but usually people are respectful & quiet at night. Entry into the building and elevators all require key cards which was a nice feature. Each level has something different to it (library, tv room, etc...). The kitchen had plenty of stove tops for cooking. Free pasta & rice daily as well as toast & jam for brekkie and coffee.
The bar was cheap and there was plenty of activities to do during the evenings there as well as bootcamp during the week. Clean sheets and a nice comforter. Towels included as well.
The staff were very helpful & friendly! Such a great hostel experience! Would recommend this place to everyone!
Location wasn't anything exciting, but it's close to the City Rd tram and only a few stops to the CBD. Free transit if you stay in Zone 1. Didn't purchase internet as I heard it was expensive, so we just went across the street to McDonalds.
