I stayed here when I first arrived in Australia, and I remembered it being pretty good. This was not the case on this occasion. My room was dirty and cluttered, and the beds creaked so much, every time you rolled over you pretty much woke everybody in the room up. The staff, with very few exceptions, were surly and stone-faced, looking as if they just didn't want to be there. Worst of all is the kitchen. The hostel is big, with a lot of guests, but the kitchen is TINY. When you have about 6 people in it it looks almost full. Most of the hobs are broken, no one washes their own dishes so the sink is always full, and the positioning of everything clearly hasn't been thought out properly. I had some fun nights here, especially the pub quiz, but aside from that, the place needs a serious overhaul.
