Was really lucky to be given an upgrade to my own room by Jordan. The noise was a bit loud on weekends due to the pub next door and people shouting while drunk in the corridors

My sister and I checked in around 11pm (long after room cleaning is completed) to find that our private room hasn’t been cleaned since the last person used the room. Old used sheets, dirty socks on the ground. Not sure if vacuuming is a part of hostel room cleaning but that certainly wasn’t done. I was able to let that slide until I woke up the next morning and heard something moving in the bed area. The sheets sounded like they were sliding but nothing was hanging off the bed. I thought I was losing it until my sister and I saw the side of the bed moving and the white sheet on top moving with it. We tore the sheets off to make sure whatever living thing this was wasn’t within the sheets and was in the actual mattress. I have no idea what it was but I do know that I slept in that bed all night unknowingly! We told reception and a woman came up to our room to try and see it for herself. Of course the thing didn’t move but she took us downstairs and changed our room for us at my request. I doubt they truly took the situation seriously in terms of removing the bed from the room but I’m quite positive not every guest would have handled that as calmly as I did. Felt super gross there for the rest of my stay.

Hi Amy, thanks for taking a moment to leave the hostel a review. We take all matters like this seriously and as you mentioned were able to upgrade you to a brand new room free of charge. We had our maintenance team pull open the mattress to check if there was anything but were unable to find any animals or indication that anything had been inside. Sorry that you got a fright and it wrecked your stay with us! We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Australia and no more incidents with critters : ) Safe Travels.

Bedbugs and 3am room interruptions

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Cleaning. Bed bugs are disgusting and were biting everyone.
Location: Great surf beaches.
I stayed over the Easter weekend. Bed bugs in the bedding. Checked in new people into the dorm at 3am to wake everyone up. Worst experience ever.

OMD! There was a naked bike ride on the last day I stayed here. Epic!
