dont be deceived by the reviews and pics.this hostel is like the midnight express.... we arrived late 2009 in december.. the staff were rude and unhelpfull... the room was dark and dingy and filthy. the bedding was dirty and the matress stunk.. we were booked in for 2 weeks but only managed to stick it for 2 nights. we were scratching and itching from the room.. we couldnt even get a drink, and were told to leave the lounge around 12 midnight as they were locking up, it was like a prison not a hostel. when we decided to leave, we were told we would get a refund, only to find out we would recieve nothing back. STAY AT THIS HOSTEL AT YOUR PERIL........

Booked in for 7 nights, arrived at 1am and had to traipse down a pitch black alleyway to the back door. Room was DISGUSTING, and STANK!!! Got up the next morning and had been bitten by bed bugs (about 20 bites), changed beds the next night and was destroyed by them (over 100 bites, seriously I still have marks), it was awful. Saw cockroaches in the kitchen, really dirty place! There is a BYO bar at the front which was fun on the Friday night, but when a few mates came round on the Sat night, the guy who 'manages' the place told me they weren't welcome... had they been girls I'm sure they would have been...

Oh and the 'High Speed Internet' for $5 a week.... is constantly broken!

The guests in the hostel were amazing though, and did have a laugh with them for the short time I was there!!!

I would suggest you'd be happier and cleaner staying ANYWHERE else (including the gutter)!!

Avoid avoid avoid!!!

please please please do not stay here, I have been to some dives in australia but this is by far the worst. the rooms are like prison cells it is damp dark and the smell was horrid. The bathrooms look and smell like they have never been cleaned the boys toilet had a big crack down it so you where really peeing on the floor. the kitchen was dirty and housed a family of roaches. when we found bed bugs we told the owner who sprayed fly spray in the room and told us that would sort it. there is a bar next door so the chances of getting any sleep is slim

I went to Bambu cause I was disappointed by another hostel ... I must confess that the lobby and the bar are great. It's like being in Bali, very relaxing, a nice place to have a drink ... but once you head to the room, the dream turns into a nightmare ... people who stay there, stay for long periods of time and just don't care about cleanliness ... I saw many rooms and all were like the pictures ... I would say that this hostel was certainly great 10 or 15 years ago because the decoration is great ... but today this hostel is run down, obviously you can tell that there's no cleaning and all broken stuff are not replaced. Go there for a drink but please don't sleep there unless you want to sleep on stained, dirty and smelly matresses with all kinds of insects !!!
