    very near the china town, and queen street mall, and rail way sation. good for the young and single traveller, many handsome boys..a little noise due to they have the party in the 1st floor. but the room is good, and big, my room for 3 pax is 2 level, with the living room and bed room. very clean.

    suitable for young people.

    I stayed in a 8 dorm female room, i liked how each bed is separated by a wall. So you had your own space. The staff was friendly and helpful. the rooms were clean and it was well lit, every room or bunk bed has its own little night light so you can continue to read or do your stuff and not have to keep everyone awake with the main light on.

    the noise coming from their night club, the noise was loud and it traveled into the rooms. They should offer ear plugs for free instead of having to purchase it from reception.

    The Availability of quality food for free and the availability of a bar / club right next to the Hotel , which I found to be convenient for backpackers

    The rooms , Mattress wasn't too comfortable . Bed placement I thought was abit ridiculous , Top bunk left side of room the ladder was blocked by a cupboard which made it very hard to get on an off the bed

    Tv room pretty coool. Well equiped kitchen. Really near peter pans transfer from bus station a plus

    It was grand, only I was sick and my room was right over bar so didnt sleep, didnt have the option. That kinda ruined my experience also my bed was really uncomfortable and lumpy...

  • Single

    The bar is very lively on a weekend and has good drinks promotions.

    If you stay in a 4 bed room you have to pay $2 dollars every time you use the locker. It is generally unclean and I did see a cockroache in the hall. The beds have plastic covers oon them and the frames are extremely squeaky; I had to change beds after the first night.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Close to everything and good staff

    Due to a reservation mixup I had to move rooms for my second day. The room I was moved to had a very strong dank smell to it and the smell was present all the time.

    Fantastic location! Reasonable value for money - ie if you're heading out in the Valley, whatvyou pay in accommodation, you save in cabs!! Clean, comfortable loft style apartment. Parking very limited. Bookings.com says free parking, no need to book. Thankfully I checked with venue & bookings essential @ $10 per car & only 6 spaces! Would stay again.

    Only the lack of staff on reception on checking in & out...but have to remember, it's a backpackers hostel, not a hotel!
