The location was good, and it was really clean.
There was only a sheet on the bed, no blanket. I had to sleep in warm clothes. There were people talking in the common area late into the night, and it echoed through the whole place. Management signs said people doing this would be asked to leave, but I never saw management do anything about it. Reception didn't open until 9am. It wasn't clear to us when we checked in that we would have to wait until 9 before we could return our key.
Friendly, caring staff. Generous with room choices. Free coffee & toast early AM. Good spacious kitchen. Quiet area to sleep. Free tea & coffee at reception. Inexpensive room rates double or single. Fridge & table & chair in rooms.
Reception closes over lunch time between 11am-1pm. Some may not like 1km walk to CBD but there are many cafés & pubs in Palmer St.
Friendly staff, great location, room well decorated, free shuttle to airport
my 4 bed dorm that actually all to my self over the week long stay
was supped get a V8's super car $30 a night price had an event days extra change put on instead
Cleanliness. Room size.
No blanket provided - freezing cold night & had to sleep in thick clothing as checked in after 8pm on a Saturday night, therefore only were able to pick up keys left in an envelope and did not have the chance to speak with reception. No heater in room. Very noisy!! Other travellers screaming at early hours of morning. We are a young couple and have stayed at backpackers yet will never return here!
Location is great
Facilities are very poor needs alot of maintenance rubbish left everywhere
pooldeck clean bathrooms
bed not comfortable
Noisy and not very clean
I like the services the cleanliness.
No mirror in the room, no TV as well and no closet
staff was friendly and helpful
The location and atmosphere isn't to feel much comfortable
Had that run down feel
not very much to like liked the river
too many stairs staff weren't very nice they talked only when you actually want something
The bed slouched in the middle causing a sore back
The staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were really good - excellent pool, kitchen and common area was large with pool table and table tennis. The location is good - restaurants and bars nearby and short walk into city centre. Room was basic but clean.
It looked a bit run-down and had a bit of a motel feel to it with obviously long term guests there. Bathrooms were a little grubby and locks on the doors were broken.
Within easy walking distance of my conference Room airy, bed comfortable, little refrigerator very useful, ceiling fan very much used through the night Tables on first floor deck just right for open-air breakfast Other guests accepted the rules and quieted down after about 10:30 Quite reasonable price per two-person room
Needs a little extra maintenance - tap washers in bathrooms, broken tiles, torn flywire here and there, some toilets and showers run-down Needs more attention to removing litter - some guests or others passing through leave alcohol bottles and other debris all about
The staff were very nice. The rooftop swimming pool is pretty good with a good view of the creek. The reception was well stocked with convenience goods like water, snacks and simple meals. Room was very clean as were the bathroom facilities.
It took a bit too long to walk to the beach but can't really complain for the money.
Location & facilities
The place was a bit run down! A lot of lights were not working, couple of taps could not be turned off wasting copious amounts of water. The downstairs toilet (men's) always stank of stale urine/ amonia . Gave the impression of not being cleaned adequately if at all.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Plumbing in bathroom neede repairs..
We arrived on Boxing day to find the reception closed, but a lady came pretty quickly and checked us in when we rang a number on the door. The price of this hostel made it fine for a one night stop-over on our way to Cairns, but I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone else.
The pool was tiny and very dirty. It looked nothing like the pictures on here! Very basic rooms. The curtains don't really cover the windows fully and the beds are very uncomfortable.
Single room which was perfectly clean. Within a reasonable walk of town centre. Pleasant staff.
On the 2nd night of my visit some other guests were unreasonably noisy but can't really blame the hostel for that.
Location, room size and better quality than some hotels in Singapore, the building layout. parking space.Very Helpful staff members. rooms and and showers clean
Place was generally a bit grubby on the outside and needs a spring clean. a bit of fresh paint wouldnt go astray in places, Tv room windows need a clean. One staff member only had a poor attitude. Garden needs attention.
$55 for a double room. Air conditioning in the room.
The mattresses were extremey uncomfortable. Very Soft - almost unsleepable. Fyi management - Room 244
Close to city, reasonable price
Bed mattress was very uncomfortable
Great price, room was clean tidy n comfy.
Reception hours limited for late arr oreay dep but staff willing to accommodate late notice.
Toilets and showers were clean.
