I'm a 25 year old girl from the UK and have been traveling by myself off and on for the past 3 years... I've stayed in a few hostels during my 7 months in Australia, and I must admit, this has been one of my favourites so far!
Yes, it's not perfect... It could be a little cleaner, but I didn't see one cockroach during my 2 week stay. And it could be a little quieter, but that just comes with the central location being a 2 second walk from all the bars and shops (but hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?) I also have a thing about bed sheets, but all I had to do was go to reception and ask for new ones! They were so nice about it that they actually went out, bought me brand new ones, washed and put it in the dryer and then put it on my bed!! All I wanted was for them to change it...
Aside from those things though, I had the best time! The atmosphere in the hostel is great. Everyone is so nice and willing to have a chat and make you feel included. They're all up for a good laugh (and a goon box or two) and I have genuinely met some great friends that I hope I will come across again some day.
