Almost at the end of or trip throgh Australia, we landed in this hostel. This is more of a party hostel. If partying through the night is what you are looking for, then this is your place to be. We would have appreciated at least one night of sleep (before 2 a.m.) though. And waking up to the sound of people running around drunk on your floor and banging against doors is not what I call an enjoyable stay. However, while this is probably a matter of tast, attitude or age, Hygiene is not. The place is DIRTY!! in every sense of the word. While the housekeeping staff does a good job cleaning the rooms (thank you again for that!) The shared bathrooms are simply nauseating. Vomit in the sinks (I should have taken photos) with an ant highway running right through. Dirty toilets and showers. To be fair: It is the high season, but this is not possible for a hostel that came so highly recommended to us. I don't like to give bad comments and I hate reading some comments that are utterly unfair, but this hygienic situation ist NOT acceptable. You do have great facilities, but you let them go to waste.
Thank you again for your great and friendly staff at the reception.
