The hostel is cleaner than YHA Brisbane for example, here they do clean the rooms and more importantly the toilet (at least that I could see) the kitchen could improve with shaper knifes and give maintenance to utensils, old pots need the handles screw and there are blender bases but not the glass to actually use it. The lockers should be check for people that have already left a d their plates and food still there, they should also be clean. Nice staff and nice vibe too. Is good there is a free food and stuff area and also in the fridge. Fridges need a good clean up too

Beds need to be replaced, overall good stay.
Hostel location is good. Lots of food and places to be social nearby. Easy access to train, bus, and ferry terminal. Beds themselves are not so great comfort wise. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed room. It was fine, until someone would open the door. It always slammed and woke everyone up. The kitchen is clean, laundry was good, didn’t try the pool but you see it every time you walk outside your room. Bathrooms could be cleaner, but it’s really up to other guests. Nice hot water always available at any hour. Kitchen has everything you need, but the fridge space is limited.
