Friendly staff, But not so clean room. The stuff of the long stayers were everywhere on the floor in the room. The bathroom and rest of the hotels were clean.

nice little hostel with a great view. Provides everything you need.
Fairly small but a nice hostel. Clean rooms. Limited shower/toilet facilities, which can be annoying. No shuttle from bus stop and there is a big hill up to the hostel. In all I would recommend this place.
Came back here several times. Very clean, staff was friendly, made some great friends -- love the patio! Got very ill with strep throat when I was there and the staff made sure I was well taken care of, offered to help, showed me where to find a Doctor.
very good facilities with relaxed atmosphere, stayed four nights in a small clean dorm. hostel kept clean and the staff were helpful. Worth a look.
An interesting setting this one, very tropical!. The place was clean and well decorated, however it was not very friendly. I stayed for a weekend and no one would barely speak to me! There must have been a fair few long termers here. The staff seemed fine but i was not overly impressed. Some silly rules like closing the kitchen for 10 hours etc, A good hostel needs atmosphere and fun and this lacked it.
This hostel is full of "long-stay" guests and so I found it really difficult to have a conversation here. For the ones who already stay here it is like a little family but if you are just passing through you may feel like an outsider. The rooms are nice and clean though, but the kitchen is too small and is often crowded. Friendly reception but not a great location!
Great hostel, clean cooking space and friendly people. Reasonable prices and close to the main transport hubs to go anywhere you need
Liked: Cool outside decking area. Didn't like: Only get 1 hr free wifi a day. Went down to the YHA to use theirs. There are better hostels nearby than this one. Staff didn't know what they were doing.
Good sized room (I was in a 4 person room), clean single sex bathrooms, fun atmosphere. Close to restaurants, grocery store, and bars. Friendly staff.
Liked: Clean, close to coles, easy to walk to town. Didn't like: Lots of stairs and no safty boxes in the rooms.
