    Worst hostel ever - dirty, expensive and with very weird guests. We were recommended this one by the airport information. Please do not repeat our mistake, this is a terrible hostel, I did not think that something like this is possible in Australia.

    Hostel was a bit rank, staff very unfriendly. I questioned the price of the room as I'd seen it online cheaper ad the guy just dismissed it. Would not stay here again, the only good point was it was central.
