    Great location!

    Araceli V. (November 2014)

    We had a rooftop room and it had poor ventilation and smelled strongly of mould. But the location was pretty good and the staff were wonderful and very helpful. We met really nice travellers and staff. The cafe next door was recommended but it didn't...

    Penelope T. (November 2014)

    My stay was very comfortable and the staff very helpful.

    Janice A. (November 2014)

    i love how comfortable the whole hostel is. the kitchen, well equipped and clean.

    Jodie W. (November 2014)

    Staff were very friendly and helpful and welcoming, and the whole vibe in the building was just great. The room I had was nice and clean and the bed was comfy. Plus the location was just fabulous, with a tram stop right outside the door.

    Melissa E. (November 2014)

    I think its expensive overall.$5 / Hour for Wi Fi is ridiculous and there is no storage for luggage unless you pay.

    BRIAN W. (November 2014)

    Good place to be, good place to work from. Easy to find and easy to get to. Rooms are good, the beds are good, the extra facilities (the roof garden, the TV room and the balcony area) are good. Be there, do it.
