Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Business traveller
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
A great location with public transport at the door. A heritage building so not a lot the new managers can do to the overall building however they are actively looking to improve the facilities with recently renovated showers/toilets etc. Free breakfast each day is a bonus (especially with the pancakes - yum!) and lots of mid-week activities to get involved in. Only complaint here is that the b/fast only opens around 8am so if you want an early start you miss out. The common areas including kitchen, dining, toilets etc. are cleaned daily by contractors. The staff are really friendly and someone is at reception 24/7 to assist. A bar, TV room (Netflix), rooftop BBQ area and games areas (pool table, board games etc) round out the facilities with an in-house travel desk as well. Lots of different accommodation alternatives from shared dorms to en-suite rooms complete the picture. I stayed in a 6 share dorm initially and then upgraded to a 2 bed room with own TV! Free WiFi included (of course). Talking with fellow travellers the common theme is that this is one of the best and most friendly places they have stayed. Glad I decided to stay here and have made some (hopefully) long term new friends.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
This is a good hostel however there’s is room for improvment. The rooms were very hot and there is no A/C in rooms. Also 3/6 showers were out of order during my stay however on last day there was someone in fixing them. Bed was very comfy and linen smelt very fresh. Free breakfast is a bonus.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
Mice issue lets it down
This hostel has a mice issue, traps have been put down by staff but still my food hanging in a bag in the kitchen got eaten by mice. Knowing mice were around put me off even though the cleaning staff did a good job at cleaning around. Liked how there were curtains on the bunk beds, I had a 12 bed room which was large but did hear others say their rooms were quite small. Staff were friendly good activities going on but due to mice I wouldn't recommend.
