Hi, I've been attempting to follow up on with the review that you have left us however, I am afraid I can not seem to locate your booking. This is also the first that I am hearing of a guest of ours not being accommodated in a double room when they have booked one. If you feel there is something further you wish to advise us of, we would welcome further information. Best of luck for your future travels.

Great location. Fabulous for a backpackers hostel. Limited parking, free street parking blocks away from hostel (see photo). Squeaky pipe noise in walls disturbs sleep. Mattresses just thin foam. Late night rowdiness rules not enforced, bring ear plugs.

Well-run backpackers with great facilities. Strange squeaking noise in walls made it difficult to sleep. Thin foam mattresses. Parking difficult, see photo.

Good backpackers

I had a great stay here. Everything I needed, and helpful staff. Free shuttle service to Roma st station and Southbank is very handy, and all the staff were very helpful. Add a pool and bar/food facilities it really is a resort for backpackers. Stayed in a 4bed dorm which had an ensuite and a tv. So I was happy. Thanks BBR.
