    The location is by far the best thing going for this hostel. Convenient to Soutgern Cross station, Flinders St and tram line right out front makes getting around so easy. Walking distance to restaurants and entertainment and shopping.

    Leanne T. (January 2015)

    Very comfortable hostel. Convenient location just in front of the tram stop and five minutes on foot from the train and coach station.

    Incredibly clean, everything is brand-new. Huge kitchen, lots of bathroom options, definitely a great place.

    Abigail O. (January 2015)

    Great communal area. Clean and brilliant staff.

    Erika N. (January 2015)

    Everything good except for the room. Very small with tiny window - prison like. It smelt and I couldn't leave the window open much because it was just above a roof and not secure. Staff great. Good location.

    Clare F. (January 2015)

    Really great hostel in a great location, very helpful staff. Was a very nice stay! Quite expensive, but good value for money overall!
