Nice staff, cleanish and handy to the city centre
The beds were so squeaky. Sounds ridiculous but every time anyone moved at all the whole dorm was woken.
Great location and had a clean, comfortable room
The staff were friendly, the bed was comfortable and the facilities were great. I will stay here again.
Everything on offer, close to everything, safe, happy vibe, never feel alone, always happy, I stay 2-3 times per week. Love it.
The rooms usually smell if you get bad roomies, or they have been there for extended period....
I enjoyed everything...maybe needed a quiet place to chill out...as the kitchen area gets busy....the tv room gets busy and hot and people sleep so a chill zone would be epic
I didnt like the guy in my dorm chopping wood in his sleep ( snoring his arse off) but asked him to keep it down...like I said a chill zone is much needed....I Know theres a bar opening soon but that will be full of drinking members haha
Ever since we checked in, we were taken amazingly care of. Staff were always ready to help you and guided tours were hilarious! The pub crowl was the best. The rooms were clean, new and tidy all the time. We stayed in 10 persons dorms, so if you are used to that, I can recommend that one. Kitchen was perfect and other areas too. Nothing to complain.
good location right at flinders; shared bathroom but for your own private use; free wifi in common areas;
not flexible with Check-in and check out; Sleepless night due to snoring room mates; room mates in and out of room; noisy; no towel; crowded; have to bring down your bedsheets, pillow case and duvet cover at check out; very small reception.
It's clean, the kitchen is a good size and the TV room is comfortable! One of the best hostels I've stayed in, usually stick to YHA but this one is probably a step up!
The storage in the dorms is awful, bags won't fit in the under bed lockers and so they have to be stored in the middle of the room between each bed. I've spent the past month tripping over everyone's things!
-Facilities almost new -located in center -friendly and helpful stuff
-many, many people there. It's a quite big Hostel
location is great friendly staff cool decoration
not much, it served us fine
Access is very good. The room was clean fortunately, since my roommate kept clean. If I will go again, I will stay here.
We cannot use wifi in my room. But it didn't make any troubles to me.
Great location, comfortable bed, everything is new and good!
no WiFi in the room, and hope they get their laundry done soon!
Have stayed in hostel only for a couple of days. I was lucky enough to get good neighbors. The place seems clean enough (for me) and developing, so I hope it will become even better. The location is just across the central station. No problems with leaving you bags for storage for free (just in storage room) or inside locker.
Showers are combined with toilets, so on average it reminds the tropical swamp and I really hate hot and humid environment. Up to now there is no common area to spend time - wither you sit in the kitchen or in the hall outside. I was there on Thursday and Friday and both days people were drinking heavily in the kitchen making a lot of noise.The wi-fi signal strength was really poor sometimes.
Clean and comfortable Great Kitchen
Some of the music
Could get really loud and noisy at times.
Perfect Location Facilities were sufficient
Clean, modern facilities
rubbish being emptied outside the window each morning at 5am wasn't so cool
Staff take your Food! If you leave it in the kitchen other people take it if you keep it with your luggage/belongings the staff take it!
I could go on about how awesome the location is. It's right across the road from Flinders Street Station and anything you need is pretty much a 5 mins' walk or tram ride away. It rained when I was at Federation Square, and all I had to do was make a break for it at two traffic lights (stopping in between to get lunch from Lord of the Fries) and I was home free. In addition, I really appreciated having separate bathroom shelves for each occupant, as well as a reading light and electrical outlet for the upper bunks. Small details, but they make all the difference to me!
Unfortunately, the super convenient location also means that there's a lot of traffic during most of the day (and night). Nothing too major and I could sleep reasonably well, but just putting it out there for light sleepers who may be affected.
I liked the location. Staff was excellent. Its so central. Would definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
I loved the whole experience,ive stayed here before. Staff friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm they are very spacious and comfy...only down side is busy road outside but i get use to that. Great how get own plug socket and lamp next to each bed. Brilliant location
Clean Good facilities
Too big- very little character Crowded Not great for solo travellers
Large common area and huge kitchen. Perfect location. Friendly and comfortable
Wifi only in common area Beds squeaked a bit
Location is very good, just opposite main train station, walking distance to city central shopping area
The shower water is very cool, almost giving me a fever. The sink in my toilet was jammed and I had to go outside to brush my teeth. The mattress is uncomfortable and squeaky.
