Stayed here for only one night with Kiwi Experience and was put in an 8 bed dorm with 5 guys and a couple (a bit overwhelming when my first night in a mixed dorm was the night before!). So I asked to move to a less male room at the front desk and the lady was really nice and understanding and moved me straight away.
The rooms are really clean, as are the bathrooms and the kitchen, could do with a few more pots though as everyone eats at roughly the same time!
There's a living area with a small TV, some computers and a coin operated massage chair.
Conveniently next door to a bar/restaurant, although didn't visit so not sure what it's like - they do deals with the hostel thought for meals and drinks.
There's a big convenience store right around the corner which sells everything you need for a quick stopover, mini golf and flying fox right across the road; and it's situated next to the coast where I was able to get an Aqua Taxi to the Abel Tasmin National Park (about 15-20mins away on water).
