    Fairly new hostel so everything is in good condition, most people we met staying there said it was the best hostel they stayed in since being in Australia. Bathrooms are lovely.

    There was a member of staff who was pretty loud and scary, keeping an eye on people in the kitchen and would yell at you if she thought you were doing something wrong even if you weren’t doing something wrong. Polite tones wouldn’t go a miss! Only thing which ruined the stay.

    Nothing to complain about.
