We stayed around 3 weeks at this place. Our stay was overall good. This place is really good located : 10min from the CBD, 10min from the Opera and 30min from the Central Train Station. Really good value hostel, we payed 16AUD for a 4-bed dorm, because we booked via their website, I don't understand why it cost 20AUD if you book via their office, so if you need to save money, book via internet. This place is overall dirty. Showers and toilets are dirty and a lot of them are broken. There is roch and bugs everywhere on this place, kitchen, tv room, rooms, EVERYWHERE! Staff and reception are a bit unfriendly... It's depend id there is at the reception of course but overall they're not friendly, even the manager. First night at this place, expect you to spend a cold night, because they have not enough blanket for everyone. It's a young place so if you don't like the party and noisy place, don't come here.
