Close to Central Railway Station. Up early to catch a 6.18am train. Bed in room 714 was very comfortable. Nice warm shower in the en-suite. Only a small room.

Happened to come on a long weekend and the place was packed. It’s a good hostel however can get noisy. Location is good and there is daily cleaning service

We had a twin room with shared bathroom. The beds were comfortable. The cleanliness could be better. We were on the 2nd floor and the ladies bathroom only had one toilet stall with a seat. A repair of the other 2 toilets would have been nice. Large amount of fridge and cooking space available in the common kitchen. Overall happy with my stay.

Solo traveler, first time hostel.
I really loved the staff at this hostel (legends!), but overall I don’t reckon I would choose this place again. Although there is nothing wrong with a young crowd, they typically focus more on creating partying-type vibes rather than promoting a more open and sociable atmosphere that makes it easy to meet other travellers. I think as a result, the bulk of their guests are very young and seldom by themselves. The location was a bit far from a lot of what I wanted to do, but fortunately the train and tram system was just across the street. I didn’t feel welcome in the sense of meeting other solo travellers and wish they offered different events to get their guests together. I was hoping for that with my first time in a hostel.
