Stayed here for around 2 weeks and was lucky to be placed in a 4-bed female dorm with nice solo travellers. They are usually young people from other regions of australia/ other countries, e.g. Sydney, Taiwan, France, Switzerland etc, here to do part-time work & travel or those on RTW trips. Most of them spent 1-3 nights in this place.
The toilet on the level that I was staying at had no hot water, so went down to another level for shower. Shared toilet cleanliness was ok.
There's a shared kitchen, and a common room with sofas etc at the check-in counter level. A few of my friends spent the night on the couches after coming back from a late night event cuz there was no trams/ trains runnning. Free cereal with milk/ toast with jam breakfast daily as well, if you wake up in time. Cheap set meals in the evenings at the bar downstairs too, but I didn't try.
