Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had a great time in this hostel. I’m a solo female traveller and I felt comfortable and was able to meet people and have fun. Tara at the bar was helpful and friendly. Staff were helpful in planning your next steps and food is cheap and good!

I stayed at the doozy koala for a few nights. Kate and Tara were working at the time and they were fantastic! Any question I had wasn't too much trouble to answer and Kate's advice and tips on things to do around the city made organising my stay a breeze! Staying in hostels, people can either make or break it for you and Kate certainly made it for me! The food was amazing and the beds were super comfy.would recommend 10/10!

Everybody loves koalas and the same goes for the doozy crew. Booked for two nights stayed for 5. Beds have curtains and rooms are clean, the showers are hot which is rare for central and the food from the kitchen could of been made my gordan Ramsey. Get kate to make you a bloody Mary they're delicious.

Best location, best owners, best staff 👍👍 So kind and accommodating. Also absolutely beautiful courtyards! We didn’t even check in for the first two days, but kept coming by the Doozy for the vibes (And the happy hour). Decided we had to stay after that for a couple days 😊 Super spacious dorms. Eat the guacamole and the egg sandwich ps, or the stuffed avocados. Actually eat it all. Drink it all. Stay forever.
