3   Ok This hostel is great unless you're looking for work and even worse if you're a guy. It's been 3 months and I've still no job but there are are people coming from the year before and getting their old jobs back which is complete bullsh*t when you've been there for a long time. I'm glad I got out of there when I could, Kiley and keeva the managers are both so over come with the "power" they have being the manager that they forget what's important and will fine everyone for the littlest things, they also bitch about people in the hostel, which makes it very awkward.  , age 23, english ()
5   Delta is the place to be!!! Delta has been my home for 7months!! I have had the best times there and met some awesome people! Friends I will keep forever. When i arrived at delta i was told i would have a 3 week wait for work as the season was just starting up. By the 2nd week I had spent most of my money so the staff very kindly opened a tab for me so I could pay when I was earning. This was a god send as I was broke! The week after I started work on a great pepper farm, 7days a week, the work was so hard at 1st but slowly got used to and worked there for 6months. I then had a small accident at work damaging my finger. Kylie, Caoimhe and Kirsten could not of been any more helpful to me. Taking me to the local hospital and making sure I was covered. The staff helped with all sorts of stuff that i could not of done. I will miss delta it really is like having a big family round you! If you want the best experience farming and living in a happy crazy environment delta is the place to be! I don't have one bad word to say about delta!! Only I will be back next year.  , age 25, England ()
5   Best experience of my life ... I miss it so much!!!! I stayed at Delta for 5 months in 2012 ... it was not only 5 of the best months I had in Australia but probably 5 of the best I've had in my life!! I made so many amazing friends for life and have so many memories that I will cherish forever ... Delta is however not for the fainthearted -- if you don't want to work hard as well as playing hard then do not waste your time going! It separates the men from the mice. At first the farm work can be extremely hard but if you stick at it then it becomes easy and actually very enjoyable!! I would go back in a heartbeat. If people come and moan about the work, the hostel, the vehicles, the staff etc then it is a reflection on them and their weak character, Delta is a way of life and you have to embrace it, yes the hostel is perhaps not the cleanest but what do you expect when you have over 100 people all working on dirty farms everyday??? Yes you might have to wait for work but that's just the nature of the farming game!! everyone gets there in the end and moaning about it will not get you there any faster!! The place becomes like home and the people and the staff become like family!! So much so that the staff are coming to Scotland to see in the new year with me!! So if you want to make amazing friends for life, have a good time (believe me its total madness at the weekends when everyone's out of work mode) earn your second year visa and overall have the experience of a lifetime then I cannot recommend Delta highly enough!!!!!!!! and to all of you thinking of going I am jealous that you still have it all yet to come. I will maybe see you there as I haven't used my second year visa yet and will definitely be returning to Delta at some point when I do.  , age 25, Scotland ()
1   Worst place we've ever stayed!!! I stayed here for 2 months and my friend just 2 weeks. The hostel is dirty but I thought I could get past that as I needed my 88 days and I met some great friends. But the staff were disgusting! So rude and bitchy! Gossiped about everyone! (Except emma she is amazing!) Me and my friends were accused of stealing and without proof were threatened to be kicked out! (One girl was kicked out but luckily me and my friend wasnt as I had no money!!) I could understand if there was proof but there was none! The girls toilets were always blocked and leaking ... youd be lucky if one was working! And the showers were filthy, one of which also leaked! Stuff would also leak from the bathroom ceilings! The pool was always filthy too! Beds are a hazard as somebody was on the top bunk and the bars gave way so she fell off! Luckily she was ok!! The minibus and cars that take you to work ($8 a day per person) are not at all maintained! I was in one and the brakes went! We ended up lightly crashing into the back of the other minibus! Luckily nobody was hurt! They are also dirty but that is understandable as people get dirty at work. I met some wonderful friends here but everything else was disgusting! Would never go back! So glad I made it out and im now loving life in Sydney with my friend! Had to borrow money to leave as i wasnt getting any work! Avoid if you can!!!
Réponse de l'établissement: Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. It would help other users of this site however if you had not failed to omit a few facts. Yes I agree the hostel can get dirty, we have full time cleaners (Emma who you referred to as amazing) however as a working hostel we see a above average amount of dirt coming through here it is also long term accommodation so people tend to accumulate a lot of stuff and rooms can get cramped. The pool being dirty is due to the crushing. Farmers burn cane and what is referred to as 'black snow' settles around the whole town. The pool is safe to swim in and is cleaned regularly. The reason you weren't able to save here is because you broke your toe within the first two weeks and you were unable to go to work (as you had work 5 days after arrival) and the staff you refer to as rude were the ones who advised you not to go back to work while you were in pain and when you did and rang them crying and asking to be picked up one of them in their own time and at no charge to you drove 1 hour out and back to collect you from work. With regards to the theft an accusation was made and you were both approached and asked if you knew who it was. You told us who you suspected and as my staff also suspected this person a further investigation took place in which the stolen items were found and the offender was told to leave. If the situation was reversed and someone had stolen from you wouldn't you want action to be taken? All of our vehicles go through a road worthy once a year and are maintained regularly throughout the season. The car involved in this incident had the hand brake left on all the way out to the farm as the driver ignored the red warning light and the brake pads heated up and are no longer as effective. Please refer to other responses with regards to why we charge $8 a day. This is a standard cost with most hostels. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your time here, enjoy Sydney and the rest of your trip.  ()
5   I miss Delta!! got to Delta ... and hated it; I didn't see myself lasting a week let alone 88 days. I was there for 5 months and they were the best 5 months in Australia! I had to wait a month before I got full time work, its just luck with farming and what one you get on and what the hours are like, I unfortunately wasn't on the best farm, but we had the most fun! We all bonded over how crap our farm was!!! During the time that I wasn't working, I was able to hand over my passport (which at the time I wasn't happy about) and run up a tab, this was totally beneficial as I could stay there and pay back the rent once I started working!! The hostel itself is nothing special, it's a working hostel, people are coming in dusty and dirty every day, it's impossible to keep it clean! But you get used to it and Delta becomes your home. I had the most amazing times in the hostel and met brilliant people. You have to give it a week or 2 to settle into working hostel life, but when you do, its brilliant! The nights out to Queens are great fun, and going to work hungover is hilarious after raving in your room till all hours! The manager Kylie is amazing as well, she has to listen to a lot of complaints about the farm work, but she'd there to help you out whenever you need a good moan!! Go to Delta if you want a place to call home for a few months and have an amazing experience!  ()
5   My Second Home! When i got to Delta i had to wait 4 weeks for work due to torential rain, however during this time i was able to hand my passport over until i could afford to pay rent which helped. Farm work is pot luck, you could get on a farm with good hours 6 days a week or, like me, you could be not so lucky. This has nothing to do with the hostel it all depnds on the weather/crops etc so be prepared that you may not leave with thousands of dollars saved in the bank. The hostel is bog standard in terms of the rooms, kitchen, cleanliness etc but you come to Delta for the EXPERIENCE. When i first arrived an found out how hard farm work actually was i swore that on my 88th day i'd be running out of Ayr and not looking back. I stayed for 5 months and loved every minute of it. Met some of the best friends iv ever made that are friends for life, had loads of fun on kareoke/fancy dress nights an pretty much every weekend an some week nights at the hostel bar and Queens (the one and only "nightclub" in ayr that u cant help but love) Delta was my most special time in oz for all the amazing friends i made an crazy memories i'll have for life. It was my HOME not a hostel, leaving was so sad. I wouldn't trade in my time there for anything. If your a fun positive easy going person then this is the place for you. some of the staff there unfortunately are very rude an ignorant, just stay out of their way an dont let them ruin ur time there. Kylie (the manager) is lovely "alright daaaarlin." I love and miss my Delta Family, i'll be back for a visit! farmwork is more fun when ur still drunk from the night before, FACT!!  , LONDON ()
5   I love Delta I had been in Australia for 3weeks when i ran out of money and ended up at delta with 50dollars in my account! I waited 2weeks for work and then was working constantly for 2 and a half months when i left for christmas! Managed to save 4000dollars at delta in 2 and a half months which i thought was pretty awesome, considering i drank goon ALOT! I went back to delta in May to finish off my farm work and ended up staying for 4months! Delta is an amazing hostel, you get to do your farm work, you get paid well for doing it and you meet amazing life long friends at the same time! My time at Delta was such a big part of my year in oz, ive still got my delta bracelet on now that im home (we made them one hungover sunday). im going back to oz this year, and if i run outta money, i would consider headin back to delta even though i dont NEED to do any more farm days!  , Scottish ()
5   Awesome time at Delta The best time I had out of the year i was traveling was at Delta. Came to do farmwork, stayed for four months and had an absolute ball. There can be a bit of a wait for work (depends what time of year u arrive and some people hit it lucky straight away) but you do get work. Farming is tough for the first week or so but everyones in the same boat and everyone gets used to it! The cheap bar helps after a hot day working outside as does the huge pool. The garden is big enough for sunbathing/chilling too. Delta is also bang in the middle of Ayr so close to everything, cinema/shops. Its run by (mostly) nice people, just watch out for the manager! Jokes. I made really great friends there and certainly wont forget the experience.  , Ireland ()
