Well run, spacious, clean, friendly hostel.

Pros: Family of five - good sized room, Clean and modern communal bathrooms and kitchen. Helpful, friendly staff.
Cons: Better signage re-recycling in kitchen - not clear, even for English speakers. Recycle bins in rooms. Signage re-noise down after 10pm and before 7am
Location: Central to everything in CBD and close to main train station.
Family of five. Great for our kids to meet young travellers from around the world and learn about taking responsibility for cleaning up after yourself when sharing facilities.

Staff were very friendly, and there wasn't too much noise late on Friday/Saturday nights. The 24 hour kitchen was also handy and generally very clean. However the beds were squeaky and the bathrooms were sometimes a little dirty

Cool Hostel with great amenities

Cons: The room doors are quit heavy and quite noisy when they close. People talking down the other end of corridor sounded like they were outside my door.
Movie room, pool table, rooftop view, pool - this place has it all! (the lifts play cool music too!). Well located, right next to Central Station. Only 15 mins on the train from the airport. I had a private room with an ensuite on Level 7 which came with a hairdryer and linen. Shower pressure was fine and bed was comfy enough. The Staff here were very friendly and informative and were helpful in accepting a delivery there for me prior to my arrival. The Cafe attached does great coffee and food and there is a convenience store very close by. Great stay overall.

HOSTEL WITH MY KIDS!

Pros: CLOSE TO THE STATION
Cons: SINAGE TO REMIND PEOPLE TO BE MORE CONSIDERATE OF THE NOISE
Location: WHO KNOWS, WE ONLY SLEPT THERE!
MY KIDS, AGED 13 AND 14, AND I STAYED ONE NIGHT. THE ROOM WAS BASIC, AS EXPECTED. IT WAS CLEAN AND QUITE COMFORTABLE. THE PRICE...OVER 190 DOLLARS FOR A SHARE BATHROOM, SEEMS A BIT STEEP, AND THE NOISE LEVEL WITH PEOPLE SLAMMING DOORS AND CALLING OUT AT ALL TIMES OF THE NIGHT WAS ANNOYING. THERE WAS NO OBVIOUS SIGNAGE ASKING PEOPLE TO BE MORE CONSIDERATE.
