We stayed here when we were backpacking around Australia in August time. We managed to just show up and there were rooms available and we got a really good deal, $15 each for 6 nights, however we weren't in the nicest of rooms. It was a dingy 6 sleeper that stank, and we were right next to the communal room so kept getting woken up. However for the price we didn't complain After the 6 days we upgraded to a 4 share which was much nicer. The communal showers are clean and the water is hot. The communal area is also nice as there is a TV and couches so everyone just lazes about. The kitchen is very modern and clean, however they have problems with food being stolen. The location is fantastic as you are opposite the beach and opposite the main bus stop into the city. Having checked out the other hostles in town this was by far the best one, not that, that says much for the others.
