I've stayed at base in sydney which I loved, and I was expecting a similar hostel here.
For starters there is no smoking area, you have to venture downstairs and go onto the street, which isnt pleasant. Also the whole place smells very damp and sweaty, especially the movie room and the rooms connecting to the movie room.
The TV in the movie room was good, but didn't really work. I tried to play a DVD and it refused to, and batteries were missing from a couple of remotes.
The location is good, quiet but near busy bars. Also the reception were a really lovely bunch.
I was also happy with the air con in the rooms and they were a decent size.
Bathrooms weren't great though. Not very clean, and a few of the flushes were broken.
Overall it was decent, but I won't go back.
