The hostel is amazing !! I'm currently in a 2x4 apartment style room overlooking the pool and skyline views of the city. All rooms come with a handy kitchen and most have a large sitting area and large balcony. The staff are really cool too and are always there 24 7 to make sure you're having the best time ever!!...

Poppy at reception couldn't do enough to help us out. She's a star. Maybe nicer hostels around but this is the place to go if you want to have fun. Even people we met who weren't staying here told us it's the hostel to go to to have a good night. There was a $5 all you can eat BBQ,...

Doors were left open/ unlocked- not safe. Felt like a club 18-21's holiday with 'reps' letting themselves into your room at 10am...

This hostel is good if you just want to party all the time and don't care about cleanliness or lack of air. Cockroaches found in the dirty kitchen. Bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned with people's dirty underwear over the floor. No wifi except in communal area where everyone is partying. No air con just one fan in a...

We have our own kitchen and bathroom which was amazing. Very clean and tidy and the cleaners did a great job everyday to clean up after...

Had so much fun here - by far the best hostel I've stayed at whilst travelling in Australia. The dorm rooms are set up in a really cool apartment way with our own kitchen, and the cleaners come into the rooms every morning which was fantastic. Super friendly staff who run the coolest (and cheapest) nights out each night. Beer...
