By far the worst hostel ive ever stayed in, and ive stayed in my fair share. Id go as far as to say id challenge anyone to find a worse hostel. I arrived late at night after a VERY long flight, staff were very rude, nowhere in the hostel was quiet which i dont normally mind but when your tired...

I loved staying at the hostel, i stayed for a month and half in total. Although when i first arrived the place looked a little empty - but that was die to the renovation work that was happening. Level 1 has completely been rejuvenated - new furniture, bright and fresh new paint looks amazing. The kitchen area is spacious and...

The only advantage of this hostel is the fact that it is less than 200 m from Roma St station. Below the hostel is a noisy bar which lead to noisy hostel guest running around the building. The rooms were also average, nothing really special about this place.

Thankfully I only stayed for one night but if I was due to stay anymore I would have changed to another hostel. The reception area is unwelcoming, the lift was broken, the floors were dirty and the bathroom was absolutely disgusting, there were stains all over the shower. It definitely had not been cleaned in a week or two. The...

Stayed here for just one night.. Wish it could have been longer. Room was spacious and very clean (NO bugs) amazing shower and really comfy bed! The bar next door does some great cheap food too! Also it's round the corner from the bus terminal so you don't have to lug your bags far. The staff in this hostel are...

All of their receptionists are crazy individuls, all but one are friendly, helpful and professional. They have 2 lifts and no staircase. Having stayed there 4 times throughout 2 months, I found one lift is always broken, the other one is the slowest ever, I have never wasted so much time waiting for a lift! The hostel is OK, I...

I stayed here luckily just for two nights in a 8 dorm mixed. The room was absolutely crowded and not enough space at all. It was boiling in the room, the aircon wasn't really working. Instead of a window for fresh air there is an air refresher which blows chewing gum smell every half an hour in the room.. the...

Stayed here for 2 nights in room 20. Positive: close to transport centre. That's all I'm afraid. Negatives: It was an 8 bed dorm which seemed to be a long term or staff dorm and was not cleaned for months. As you walked along the ground you could feel the dirt moving underneath you. This room smelt so bad the...

This hostel is very close to the bus terminal which was why I chose it. It also has a bar on the ground floor, The Guilty Rogue, which serves a good pizza and gives a 20% discount to guests. I'm out of nice things to say. The elevator is slow but mandatory, stairs are for an emergency and only lead...
