Good if you want a piss, not if you want to save money

stayed here for a while. Its in a great location if you want to get out of the city and be near the beach. no lockers if you want to lock away stuff. not enough shelfs for everyone in a room. beds are squeky, but that's normal in most backpackers. showers were grand. there is an atmosphere here but if ya want to get a nights sleep it ain't going to happen unless you can sleep through anything. kitchen is nice and big. most of the people staying here are long termers so you can feel a bit of an outsider as it feels like one big family.

it is a lovely hostel in a good location. the queen vic market is out the back door which is great. its only a few minutes in the centre of town. the kitchen is tiny for the amount of people staying here. not enough utensils and little storage. the rooms were massive and showers were good too. there was one person on the desk I thought was very rude and not at all helpfull to me and even to the rest of the co-workers. special offer nights they don't clarify what your actually getting for what you paid for.

this is a lovely place and yes the picture in the entrance on the ceilling is weird but different. got great help from the desk about stuff. Cupboards in the kitchen were not labelled so you have to go through everything to find just the one thing. but the place is big. only one plug outlet in the room but your going to find this in most hostels anyway. showers were great compared to some others that have no power in them what so ever. there's no bar in the hostel but there are a few just up the road from it.
