Nothing unique. Poor customer service because the reception is managed by residents who live in the hostel. Poor hygiene in the first floor of the hostel.

G'day there! We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. If you could give me more information about the poor reception service, I would love to investigate this further. We usually get wonderful reviews about our staff, who are in fact paid staff who do not live in the hostel. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels, Tess

Easy check in and check out, breakfast was good. However the rooms are a tad noisy as walls are thin and right next to a road. All up friendly and not a bad stay for a night or two

The property is generally tired but perhaps a result of trying to keep it cheap for low budget travellers, even if it pushed the boundaries of my budget.
