눉The room is smaller than what showing in the photos. When you are on the top bed, your can easily hit the ceiling as it's not that high. Overall staff is ok, those in the front might not be that helpful or friendly especially that blond girl. The bathroom/toilet is not seperated. And there are only 2 on the floor.
눇My own space is pretty comfy. Big locker. Location is good to commute in freezone tram and everything is just around the corner as it's just one block away from swanson st.

눉1) The shower rooms on different floors have different layouts. Shower rooms on higher floors (from 5th floor above) are better, they are partitioned so the floor is not that wet and looks cleaner. Some of the shower rooms are with toilet, which is more convenient, some are solely shower only. Some shower rooms don't have enough hook/ place to hang/ keep things at a dry place. There's a dispenser in the shower room, but no label at all, and there's actually some liquid inside, don't know what it is. 2) If we stay on the upper bed, the power sockets are actually too high to be reached, and there's no shared power socket in the room, so every time I have to climb up and down when charging electronics. Same for the locker for upper bed, the hangers are actually too high that nobody can be able to hang their clothes up if they are standing on the floor. If I want to hang my clothes up, I have to put the cloth on my bed or in the locker first, climb to my bed, and try to slide those hangers close to me, so that I can hang the cloth, which is quite stupid. You should place a small ladder/ chair kinda thing in each room, so that can be used as an aid to reach the hangers without climbing on to bed. 3) Sound proof wasn't good enough. My room was next to a bathroom, and every time the hand dryer's activated, it can be heard from my room. 4) Most of the hostels I stayed, they all offer free wi-fi. Not sure if it's normal among hostels in Australia that guests need to pay for wifi. Although the paid wifi is not expensive, but the actual time that we'll be using wifi is very few, maybe just couple of house only in a day, coz most of time we are out of the hostel whole day.
눇1) Staffs look tired and distance, but when talk to them, they are actually friendly. It's half business trip, and half leisure. We asked some information about public transportation to some places that we'd like to visit (not tourist spots, for our biz purpose), most of the time the staffs can still answer us which tram/ bus to take directly, which is very good. 2) Shower rooms are built individually, gives more privacy (not like the hostels in Europe have shower rooms lined-up together in the same area and some of them have no lock). 3) Every bunk bed's got their own power sockets, and a little bedside "table", which is quite handy. there're two power sockets for each bed so I had quite sufficient socket to charge my mobile and camera at the same time, no queue. Also a little space at bedside to place our own staff for an easy reach when we are on our bed. 4) smart-designed everyone has their power socket, linen, and spacial locker so we can still have our own space/ privacy although we are staying in a shared room. 5) spacial kitchen and food storage spaces! and I like everyone follows the system of food storage- labeled our own items. I left my food in the fridge for 4 nights, and nobody taken my food at all! 6) Nice view from rooftop, and there's a Jacuzzi. Should be a good place to chill out and rest at night if traveling with friends.
