i am an easygoing person and have stayed in some pretty grotty hostels around the world but this was the worst. hot sweaty stinky loud nights. ineffective fans ,most broken. was in a tiny mixed dorm with 8 people crammed into a 3 bunk beds.2 sets of couples.i was above a couple which was very uncomfortable.a dirty room.it felt like i was intruding on someones tiny bedsit(the people in my room had been there for ages).lights turned on all night,loud, rough partying people trailing in and out.no respect.hooligans.smell of marajuana,alcohol everywhere. i literally couldnt sit,relax,sleep in the place,it disgusted me that much.i constantly felt like vomiting.this place need a serious makeover and a strict management team. the only good thing about it was its fabulous location.stay at manly backpackers down the street. its normal and has still got a good location.
