I actually booked this hostel based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and got really disappointed - no offense, maybe its just me as majority of the reviews were excellent. But I guess we have different opinions.
The hostel seems like a hospital converted into a villa - feels and looks like a hospital. The rooms and sheets were clean, though. But the overall atmosphere really didn't do it for me. It was rather gloomy and a lil bit creepy. The walls are paper thin. You hear everything, really. No wonder they provide free orange ear plugs.
Things could've been better if the shared toilets were clean - but seriously they were not. It looks like it needed a really good scrubbing. And not only that, it has the worst shower! They've put in a 5 min timer. That means you have to be very very quick, otherwise there will be no water and you have to stand there cold, wet and wait for another 5 min before you can resume! I've been to different Top 10 Holiday Parks and some of them have a 15 min shower for $50c - I would gladly pay for it just to have a decent shower.
For $80 a night, go somewhere else near the central city, somewhere in Trafalgar Street and have a good night sleep. I wont be back even if I get a free night.More
