The rooms were HUGE, like 20 people in one badly lit room. So you WILL be kept up by the last person to bed and woken by the first person up.

They also had NO ventilation, so the room was hot, stuffy and smelly. There was sick in the bathroom when I went to bed, which is fine, it happens, but it took until almost midday the next day before it was cleaned up. Definitely not to the same standard as some of the other hostels in town.

Did have lockers in the rooms and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Had a nice outdoor area, car park and was well connected with activities in the area.

The main problem was simply the quality of the rooms. They need updating - some kind of ventilation is the first step.

Room Tip: Stay at Nomads instead. SOO much better.

I came here because of the recommendation in the Lonely Planet. The hostel is great located in walking distance to the beach. The staff is friendly. But the whole place is very filthy and unclean. I've booked a double room for AUD 60 a night and that was a waste of money. The bed was in a terrible condition and I'd had to put a cushion on the middle of the matress to lay straight. It was all smelly and I was not shure, if the sheets had been changed. The shared bathroom is in a lausy condition and was dirty and damp. Not to recommend at all!

As my title says, the hostel has a superb location with 2 minutes walk to the beach, and 2 minutes in either direction to bars and restaurants and so on. Also, if you are a social person then it's a great place to meet new people, especially if you're on your own.
Downside is that it's all quite basic, with very thin mattresses, and everything is a little unclean especially the bathrooms. If you can ignore then fine, but there are no creature comforts here, bar the fun moral! Lockers in rooms are a plus!
