I wasn’t allowed to stay at the property as I don’t have a passport. This wasn’t mentioned on the booking page.

Good location in City close to shopping & transport (Train), shared bathroom needed cleaning twice a day with over 40 using them. Shower water pressure different from one shower to next, no soap holder so everything stored on floor gets wet.

Perfect location

Stayed here a few nights - the room I was put in was really messy but that was of course because of the other tenants. The bathroom and kitchen were all clean and the staff were very helpful. The hostel is licensed, they will charge you for corkage but otherwise it's nice to stay in and be able to have your own drinks when the weather isn't great. Beds were comfy and free wifi is available. The location is excellent, everything is within walking distance!

Good location for a backpackers. Very handy.

Pros: Location and value for money
Cons: The hostel tourists need to read the sign above the sink which says - Wash, Dry, and put away.
Location: Cafes nearby and CBD a 10 minute walk
I enjoyed my stay thank you. Clean facilities; friendly staff.

I arrived late around 10 pm and found my booking wasn't updated, but the receptionist was very humble and respectful to find my missing booking. He stayed late and helped me sort out my accommodation, very much appreciate his service.

Disappointing stay

Good location but the room hadn't been cleaned, the bathroom facilities were dirty, the communal kitchen was also dirty and the fridge smelt so bad I hesitated to use it. I have stayed at many backpackers over the years and most, although basic, are clean and comfortable.
