Good 7.2 From 17 reviews

Good 6.0
The check in process was easy and short. Getting to our room was also easy. The room was quite small, though I wasn’t overly surprised at that, and at one night stay it would not be overly claustrophobic. I did find it incredibly hot/stuffy to a point where I did struggle to sleep a bit, as the room had no windows or fan or AC. Check out was easy as.

Aaron, au2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Expected for a hostel. Ideal for staying short time if not worried about condition. Not great with state of building or cleanliness. However, front desk staff were always very kind.

Lovely little room. It was a bit hot but thankful for the fan. Tv was a bit static and the remote didnt work but we stayed for 1 night so wasn't bothered by it too much. The common area looked nice. View was amazing. Would be cool to have the spa pool running next time. Awesome service from the moment we called about making a reservation right up to the moment we checked out. 10/10 would highly recommend and re-visit.

I stained over here for 3 nights in 8beds room, everything was clean, and the receptionist was very friendly and supportive
Momo, au3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
I liked how helpful and polite the receptionists were. Also, the free dinner is a very generous feature. The bar/restaurant is a really nice place to be. The common area had enough space and there were many seats/couches to chill at. I found that having many sockets around the place for our devices was convenient. Number of toilets/showers seemed to be sufficient for everyone. I think that the kitchen needs to be innovated. It is also very dark and it doesn't feel great to cook or eat in there. Toilets/showers were also quite dark and I didn't feel like there was enough ventilation. They also look like they could be innovated (hangers missing, some locks not really doing the trick)
