          We really liked our stay at Zing. The double room had everything you need... A sink, fridge, TV, fan and bed. The bed was bit strange and uncomfy though. It was a bunk bed with a double bed and a single bed on top of...More

          As a hostel it was great, free breakfast, clean bathrooms, and interesting people. Also loved that it was only a short walk from the CBD. The long terms were a bit clicky and loud, but you kind of expect that.

          If you expect a basic backpacker hotel so that you have a place to sleep, you're good! I stayed in a twin room. Room was quiet and didn't hear noise from the street. Easy access to CBD from here, either walking or take the train.
