Thumbs up for the front office team that gave such lovely service during my stay there. They were so friendly and helpful at times. In addition, there are so many free interesting activities to do here but so sad i got no time to try it. I had a bed in mixed dormitory room with bathroom inside and it's quite clean and comfortable.

I booked a private double room with ensuite while on a visit to the Coast to catch up with friends. Let's start with the positives...one of the three staff members I interacted with was very friendly. That's about all I can come up with as a positive. Now for the negatives...the room was extremely basic and the bed was the worst I have ever slept in with minimal bedding (a sheet and thin cover) in winter. The door to the ensuite had four holes in it which looked like they had been punched in and the consistent dripping of water in the bathroom was torture after a while! The two chairs in the room were broken. And while there is wi-fi, it is only available in the communal areas downstairs. Having stayed in many backpackers over the years across the world, this is by far, the worst one I have encountered. It was especially disappointing as I had just come up from Space in Melbourne which was like a five star hotel in comparison to this place. I should have taken my chances and slept on the beach!

I booked a double room with ensuite. What I got was worse than a prison cell - bare concrete block walls, a double bed with a mattress that was really squeeky and lopsided, a rickety wicker chair and nothing else apart from the shower/toilet. No night table, no cupboard, not even a shelf. All my things had to stay on the floor. There were two holes in the wall that obviously held the bracket for a TV but the both were non existent (it was obvious it was for a TV because the aerial connection was below).
And the noise at night right through to the wee small hours was unbelievable!! If you want a party-packers, this is the place for you. If you want a good night's sleep, stay well away.
The kitchen was an absolute pig-sty. There was a notice up to wash and dry your dishes, but there were no tea towels to dry them with, supposing you even bothered to wash them.
If this had been my first experience of a backpackers, I would never visit another, but fortunately there ARE some that are reasonable. This is not one of them.
It does have free wifi, but only in the reception/lounge area. None in rooms. It also has free breakfast between 8 & 9am but I didn't use this service. The location is excellent, being a very short distance to the beach in one direction and a reasonable shopping centre within walking distance the other way.

Room Tip: The rooms in the other block looked much nicer, from the outside. No experience of what they were like inside.
