5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The best hostel I stayed in for my entire travels in Australia!!! The location of the hostel is central to the CBD with the tram stops 2min away. The staff are fantastic, the hostel owner Mel is a great host and was like a second mum to us all. Each week the hostel was always providing its guests with free activities such as BBQs, trivia and pool competitions which always had great prizes up for grabs. The live music on fridays and sundays are always pumping (even the friendly locals get involved). It is a small hostel but I found that to be one of its major qualities giving it that family vibe to it. Another big plus FREE WIFI the ONLY hostel I stayed in oz that offered this absolute gold!!! Absolutely recommend this hostel !!!!!
