Room was cheap and acceptable. Only problem was room claimed to have a ceiling fan which was actually just a pedestal desk-fan mounted to the wall lol but overall great, decent fun gypsy family pub place perfect for late night rest stop base camp. Games room, pokies and kids place featuring 'Brum' (a novely ride replica of old skool ABC kids show) ☮All peace part of Aussie pride😊

This is one of the worst hostels that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a lot of hostels in a lot of cities around the world. very unclean, extremely hot and hard to sleep, we were given a room with a big fan/generator right outside the window which was loud and prevented any airflow whatsoever making it even hotter and more uncomfortable to sleep. Some toilets were okay but some were very unclean with poo stains for the entire time we were there. One of the top bunk beds in our room was also half broken and disassembled with the entire safety rail and top railing missing making it very wobbly and unsafe. On top of this there was actual holes in the walls that weren't covered at all. Parking was also about a 5 minute walk away. This was a cheap stay but DEFINITELY not worth it.

Fan was so dirty it didn’t even blew air. No airco. Sink was blocked. Bed was holding on 2 screws and was bent. Stains on the bed sheets. Dead insects squashed on the walls. Run away from room 9 ! Kitchen fridge was filthy, disgusting ! Should I continue ? Worst backpack I’ve ever seen.

It's not a hostel I'm sure I'll come back too. The reception was friendly and upgraded me to a better room without further discussion since my actually room/bed in dorm was not clean at all. The new room was clean, but the lock on the door didn't work. All in all very disappointing.
