2/10 Poor

The revolting man on when I went in the night after to extend my stay muttered something from the hotel about Jewish heritage and my ancestry because I timidly and politely asked him to check to see if I was booked in correctly and he refused to even look and I reported it to the Australian Government Solicitor now and you should give me 2 weeks free accommodation because of the disgusting despicable customer service from someone that is probably jilted Mossad.

Great hostel and great ensuite rooms
Great hostel and location. Had an ensuite room with view over the park. Nice bed and great facilities. Kitchen is a bit of a mess when I was there and people not doing dishes but other than that friendly reception team and nice place. Close to the bus stop to/from the airport.

The word “Hostel” says it all
I guess the word Hostel says it all! Very basic rooms even though it was meant to be a double room with an ensuite. The price I pain I could’ve got an actual hotel room with a lot more benefits! One double bed and two bunks in the room. You get one little round cake of soap for four people so you wouldn’t all want to be really dirty having a shower! There are no tissues to be found anywhere. No coathangers to hang anything up and where you can hang something is not even a cupboard door. Pillows and bed were pretty average. Air-conditioner is operated by downstairs at the reception so you have to pick one temperature for the whole time you’re there. If anything it was an inconvenience all round. Definitely wouldn’t stay there again and definitely wouldn’t pay $140 a night!!! And you can always hear hotel door slams shot can’t you….. even at the end of the hallway you can still hear everyone coming and going.
