We stayed in a triple room with private ensuite. Very clean and comfortable amazing shower. For the price this exceeded my expectations. Is a hostel so some late night and early morning noise of people moving around but not excessive. Onsite secure parking for $10 in Newtown also a major plus!

Stayed here for 1 night with 5 girls we had two triple rooms which both really slept 4 people, it was clean tidy, fresh towels, newly renovated clean bathroom. Great for cheap accommodation and any groups looking for somewhere close to the Main Street of Newtown. Lovely staff would stay here again.

Fantastic location in the heart of newtown. Ample off street parking. On arrival staff member was efficient and welcoming. I booked this at the last minute at a very cheap rate. When I realised it was a hostel I wasn't expecting much. I booked a dble room for myself and my teenage daughter. The room was spacious with a bunk... More

I stayed here for 6 nights last week (March '16). When I walked into the room I was appalled at the state - absolute tip, with several cockroaches crawling about the place! I honestly don't think that room (number 1, I was sleeping in the top bunk immediately to the left as you walk in) had been cleaned in that... More

Great location, and friendly hostel except for One female staff member who, obviously is in the WRONG LINE OF WORK. I'm unsure why you would work in a social environment if you clearly hate people ... Issues. Tainted my otherwise pleasurable 1 month stay...

The location is excellent, in the heart of Newtown close to transport, cafes, restaurants and bookshops. An easy walk to the Enmore Theatre. Nothing else to recommend it. The ceiling fan barely moved on a steamy February night - turning it up slowed it down. Stay away from the kitchen if possible. We slept well despite some late night noise.... More
