Worst hostel ever!!! After 1 night all I saw was drugs. After cooking a bbq for everyone I was talking to few people and told them I needed a roof over my head at the moment because I have no where to live. I was threatened and told to leave because I wasn't a tourist and it wasn't a homeless...

We booked a double room for three nights and it was terrible. The hostel is old, dirty and loud. You see people running around with drugs, playing loud music and leaving there dirty dishes around. From our double room you could see directly into a club and you could hear the music the whole night as the windows are just...

This hostel is by far the worst we have been in two months travelling around Australia!!! My boyfriend and I booked a three night stay and ended up staying just one as we were scared of getting some sort of disease just by touching the super filthy, stained and crusty bed sheets. The toilet was also very dirty, smelly and...

These guys state they have a normal cancellation policy on websites like Hostelworld, but then turn out not to have it. You can't cancel with them: they will always charge the full stay. Insane! They're just out to get your money, and they're rude as well. Stay away. Trust me!

Got upstairs after a very unfriendly check-in to find smelly and cramped dorm rooms. The mattress was downright disgusting. The doors of the showers were missing, the kitchen was a dirty mess but heaven for all kinds of bugs. I left immediately for another hostel but unfortunately didn't get a refund. Wouldn't recommend it.

I haven't sleep almost at all, they had party until 5 am in the garden, that means that half of the windows are looking at it... Kitchen was dirty and messy. Toilets were a shame, I were afraid of having shower, as I was disgusted and did not want to touch the surfaces... Never again!

I don't usually find any places too bad, but this was the worst place i stayed in Australia/ New Zealand and even Asia, which is pretty disappointing, it was difficult to get a cheap hostel in Perth so picked here but wish i had spent a bit more. Sheets were dirty, staff were unhelpful/ not friendly rude, the showers were...
