3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not too bad
It was very basic. Nothing too fantastic about the location. There are other hostels around the area offering better options with respect to the comfort level. I bought a beer and took into the room. No air con. The main door was wide open for anyone to walk in. Not safe.

You pay for what you get
Very good price. I suppose you pay for what you get. Very basic accommodation but fairly clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Property looks a bit run down that’s my only real issue. Would recommend

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This Hostel was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. There was people sitting around the middle of the hostel outside in absolute filth. I have stayed in a few hostels so I am aware of what to expect but this place was next level! It was so gross! I had actually stayed in this place 6 years ago and it was nothing like this. The rooms where so run down and everything was dirty. The bed was so uncomfortable and we later discovered once we lifted up the 8in thick mattress, that they had put boards between the mattress and bed frame. We woke up to vomit outside our door. I would never recommend this place to anyone. So disappointed!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Booked online, turned up to check- in & the front gate was locked, the office unattended including the phone! I eventually go through to a person that didnt understand english after waiting 30 mins for the phone to be answered. Then to add insult to injury I was told the room was unavailable b/c they double booked. I never received a refund for the $60 I paid & had to sleep in my car over night!
