    The location was good, the staff were good, it was clean and safe. It had the good kitchen equipment and laundry tools. It seems to have improved in appearance and cleanliness since my last stay a couple of years back.

    It could have been maintained a bit better. The carpet on the ground floor has since better days and it has been like that for a few years. I know as I have stayed at this place before. If this was replaced with some nice, new carpet it would improve the place a lot.

    The staff were very pleasant and replied to my e-mail swiftly regarding on site parking. The location was very near the centre and it was easy to find.

    What could have been worse? Post check in, we headed to the kitchen to put food items in the fridge, it was an overwhelming experience for my nostrils to say the least. The next phase was taking a precarious elevator ride to our room, which on arrival was not locked and was jarred open with a bin. Turns out the door lock didn't work all to well. The room was like any other hostel room except the cleanliness was so poor, I considered sleeping in my car. The sheets seemed clean after a careful inspection so I decided to give it a chance... the thin windows made for an extremely broken nights sleep. My travel companions weren't as lucky, one had hair in their bunk and the other found a rather old blood stain on his duvet. The once again, overwhelming smell of something decomposing put my nostrils to the test. The smell became more tolerable as the night went on. The final hurdle was the bathrooms... they were grotty. You would think that people would take as little time in the shower as possible due to the cleanliness but oh no.. I waited 40 minutes for people to get out of the shower. One thing that was poor that could potentially be fixed was the WiFi, if you are on the third floor, it just about reaches the bottom bunks but if you are on the top...just forget it. Overall, I would recommend that even if you are on a tight budget, just spend the extra $5 per night on a different hostel...the PTSD is not worth it.

    Super friendly and helpful staff, great location. The hostel may not be the newest or cleanest but it's great for the price you pay. Cheapest in the city.

    The building is very very old and not greatly maintained. A lot of street and hostel noise on the weekends, due to the proximity to Courtney place and all the bars.
