This was the worst hostel we've stayed in. It was extremely cramped, dirty and unhygienic. The kitchen was disgusting, the cooker was yellow with food stains all over the fridge and rooms were damp and dark. It was very hot and the only fan we had was caked in dirt. Had holes all over the walls and damp/cobwebs all over...

We took one room in a 4 bed dorm. The dorm itself was like a converted apartment, our room had an ensuite bathroom. Overall the room was decent. The sheets were clean and the apartment itself was fairly clean, although it seemed to be in need of some repair/ a reno. The floor felt broken under the carpet in places,...

I just loved Sleeping Inn Backpackers! I had an amazing time. The people who work there are so nice and helpfull. They organise different things to do like BBQ's, bar crawls, poolparties ... They really make sure that you feel welcome and that you have an amazing time.

This was the worst hostel we stayed in travelling the East Coast. The 4 bed dorm we stayed in was tiny, dirty and ridiculously hot. I think what topped it for me was having cockroaches in my bed and I was on a top bunk. There was one toilet and shower between 8 people. The staff were friendly and dropped...

We didn't enjoy staying here, it was very small and cramped and not clean at all. Stayed there 2 nights and we wanted to leave by the first. The rooms were stuffy and the people that worked there would just come in without knocking. Would not recommend to anyone

Me and my mate probably had the best 4 nights of our east coast experience here. It's such a social and fun hostel and we met the coolest and funniest people. Also the staff couldn't do anything more for us and we're on a mission to make sure we had the best time possible. Will definitely be coming back, thanks...

Rooms are dirty. Price changed from the website and on the phone when you turn up without a booking. It's only got a 2 rating instead of a one because of the free parking and some of the staff are exceptionally nice

100% the worst hostel I've stayed in yet, and I've stayed in A LOT of hostels. It's absolutely filthy, the curtains I wouldn't even touch, covered in stains and dirt, the one fan in the room didn't even have a cover, and the one attached to the curtain pole was BLACK. We walked in to find a pair of dirty...

This hostel has a bit of a different set up of rooms than others - each room has a big bathroom with shower and a small kitchen giving it an apartment feel which I really liked. Nicer than cooking in a huge hostel kitchen as it's easier to talk to people. Also it's BYO drinks as there's no bar on...

This hostel was not good. I dont know why I got recommended this hostel as an option when I did my OZ Intro. I called to see if the hostel had a bus to pick me up from the station because I didnt know,how far away it was and I had no idea where I was going. When I called...
