About 10 min walk from central station and right across the street from the transit centre so the location is reasonable. Although there isn't much around the area, generally seems quite a professional area with lots of working properly around, during the day the bar is full of working people getting lunch. The Guilty Rogue does some great discounts, I...

I wasn't expecting much and had actually told not to go here. I'm happy I didn't listen and sad that I couldn't extend my stay. For a hostel, this place was amazingly clean. We stayed in 10 person ensuite dorm, had clean sheets and nice and clean bathroom. Only downside was, that the bathroom had two showers and one toilet....

I was arriving late that night but still can do check in as because i have paid. The location is good, apposite Roma Street St. No WIFI provided as i have to purchased $4 from the hostel counter. The room is not clean as probably i was staying in mixed dormitory room.

Stayed there 1 night with g-adventures. We had a dorm with 6 beds and 1 great advantage was our own bathroom and shower in the room. That was great. However, our room really did not smell very good and we tried leaving the door open as well as spraying perfume but it did not get any better. We also did...

Great staff!! Always a pleasure to engage the conversation with these guys. Perfect location near the train station. Cons? Only one of the two lifts was working and was quite slow; the swipe card to enter the dorm or to activate the lift wasn't working that well - exception made for the last week of my stay of course -...

By far the worst hostel ive ever stayed in, and ive stayed in my fair share. Id go as far as to say id challenge anyone to find a worse hostel. I arrived late at night after a VERY long flight, staff were very rude, nowhere in the hostel was quiet which i dont normally mind but when your tired...

I booked this hostel as a stop over on my east coast trip. Its in a great location, clean, friendly staff and comfy beds! As this was a stop over i didnt get chance to use the bar but once i left the lobby area and headed upstairs i couldnt hear the bar which is good! This hostel is opposite...

I loved staying at the hostel, i stayed for a month and half in total. Although when i first arrived the place looked a little empty - but that was die to the renovation work that was happening. Level 1 has completely been rejuvenated - new furniture, bright and fresh new paint looks amazing. The kitchen area is spacious and...

The only advantage of this hostel is the fact that it is less than 200 m from Roma St station. Below the hostel is a noisy bar which lead to noisy hostel guest running around the building. The rooms were also average, nothing really special about this place.

Thankfully I only stayed for one night but if I was due to stay anymore I would have changed to another hostel. The reception area is unwelcoming, the lift was broken, the floors were dirty and the bathroom was absolutely disgusting, there were stains all over the shower. It definitely had not been cleaned in a week or two. The...
