Do not stay here if over 25. The hostel is grimy and in desperate need of refurbishing. Wifi was unreliable. There was a dog odour around. We were told there was breakfast included which was a loaf of bread and a tub of butter. We were followed in by homeless men when returning in the evening. Definitely a party hostel... More

I stayed at Asylum for three nights. The location is very good and central, my room had an awesome view over the Botanic Garden. But, the facilities are very dirty and run down. There is mold in all the bathrooms and the carpet in the whole hostel needs to be changed. The rooms do not have AC and the Wi-Fi... More

It wasn't quite the right thing for me but if you are looking for a party hostel with very friendly staff, this might just be the place for you. The location is pretty good. Cleanliness was not great but acceptable for a hostel.

The room had enough space, but it wasnt clean. Also the bathroom wasnt really clean. The people and staff were really friendly, but it's a real party hostel. If you like that: defs go here! It's not too noisy, but i just didn't like the atmosphere. It's okay for a week.

Is what is written outside the hostel and this would be correct. I will give praise to the staff however as they were all great! Dana and the manager would chat away to us when we saw them but that's the only good thing. The room we were put in was an absolute tip. We were walking over other people's... More

Definitely a backpackers hostel with such cheap rooms! Staff were awesome and so helpful even when it came to recommending places to visit, couldn't have asked for a better service. Cleanliness was top notch, the two guys cleaning twice a day always done a fantastic job, never a corner untouched. Such a cool social vibe to the place with a... More
