I stayed here not so long ago and it was on par with the worst experience of my life. I made the booking and wanted to pay by Credit Card but was told I had to pay on arrival and when I questioned it I was told that I could have my booking cancelled in quite an abrupt manner. On arrival I could have easily turned back to the Airport it was so bad. I was manhandled on the stairs by someone I didn't even know in front of a girl who just laughed (Had I fallen backwards could have led to disastrous consequences) The showers jumped from hot to cold for no reason and was also kept awake by people singing in the corridor until 3am (How selfish is that) I would never recommend this place to anyone. It was so bad I left Australia, £2k later. Before I forget when I enquired about getting money back for time I never stayed at the place I was met by a very aggressive response "You will not get any money back, I have had this conversation with loads of other people" Whilst staying there, another backpacker came back late one night and was passed out on the couch by reception farting. What should have been the greatest year of my life turned out to be a complete disaster.
