really cheap price, perfect location close to everything. friendly staff, access to everything essential: shower/ cool room/ kitchen/ coin laundry( powder provided)/ Iron board on lvl3 etc all in reasonable condition.
No wifi in the room, you have to go downstairs. Plus it is really unstable and slow. I suggest go across street to Macca's and use Telstra free wifi.
The kitchen equipment complete for backpackers.
Only the bed shaking n make noise when we sleeps.
smell of the room
The person who allocated the rooms apparently goofed up according to the next staff on duty and we had one bed less when we returned in the night. Luggage was moved, and the person came back to a ladies dorm opened with keys n woke them up saying he can't find payment information. When we met the guy who issued keys on first day, he was abusive saying we said something to staff and refused to talk. Easily the worst experience among the 5 backpacking places we stayed in Australia this summer.
Staffs are friendly
Bed is hard and springs stabbed me Aircon didnt work Didnt get money back for not working aircon and its in summer Stairs!, why no lift
Disches e erywhere no dunacover. Old bed.
The location and staff friendliness
The bed was a little uncomfortable and the room was a bit hot but other than that
close Queen victoria market
Location and price.
No wifi in room
untidy, tatty furnishings, reeking of tobacco smoke - think seedy Asian hostel
This was practically my last option, since I wasn't planning on sleeping in the park. Even though if it was your last option, sleep in a park. It's disgusting there! I slept in a room where people lived (stuff and food was everywhere) it smelled so so bad!! Bathrooms were horrible and they had this little room where everybody would smoke. Staff is okay, they don't speak very good English but if you need help they are there. The wifi connection is bad.
Near Queen Victoria Market, Central station, and universities. Two plug-ins for each bed. Lockers in room. Varies Asian food choices downstairs.
Free wifi only works in living room and the sofas are always full. Long timers play loud Hit-pop during dinner time. People talk loudly till late at night. It would be much worthy if price lower a little.
Friendly and very helpful gentleman who checked us in and out of our stay. Fantastic location and very affordable.
Fridge in our room didn't work, no aircon at all it was quite a hot day and night and not the best pillows to sleep on
i like the location of the hostel it was great and easy access to most places in and around the city. i liked that the wifi was free great places to eat, alot of convenient stores
i didn't like it that the wifi was basically useless when everyone was connected to it... there was no instructions on how to operate the coin operated washing machine and dryer therefore costing more to wash clothes and to get them dried.
Whole place isnt great. Loud music until 1 am. Lovation far from the city. Bed and rooms never clean.
1) The location is very convenience to go anywhere. 2) I left the key in my room,the staff named sean was helping. He climbed from next room to my room and took the key.Appreciated his effort.
Dirty toilet on weekend
Most of the staff didn't speek a basic english. Everthing was so untidy and dirty espacially the toilets, showers and beds.
Location was the best, because there were so many different food options and shops nearby. Bed was okay. Cool water fountain for unlimited refill.
Loud corridors, even at midnight. Foul odour from fridge, unusable! Always noisy dining room, didn't use.
Friendly staff Free internet
Period stains on the mattress above in our bunk ROOM 314 very creaky floor boards in room Very loud guests
friendly staff, layout is great to meet people and socialise
noisey, for deep sleepers only, not so clean
Not much. Would not stay here again. Maybe my expectations were too high.
Comfy bed, kitchen was pretty good, good location.
Noisy people every night,
Location: 1 block from QV market, tram stop, grocery stores very close. Helpful and friendly staff. Clean, modern bathrooms. Refrigerator in my private room, as well as shelves for clothes and a reading lamp. Indoor smoking area. Relaxed atmosphere (no lists of silly rules about alcohol, noise, etc.), lots of young people having fun, but still quiet in my room.
No airco, but they did provide a good fan. Kitchen was a bit sloppy later in the evening, pots and pans a bit worn out and broken, but the appliances worked.
Toilets, shower rooms kitchen and domitories were so messy and dirty.
