I Stayed here back in September 2013 for a total of 6 nights and I have to say it was pretty terrible. I stayed with a group of friends in a four person room with ensuite, by ensuite I mean broom cupboard, which for a hostel I guess it might be okay.
Upon arrival we were told at 4pm to simply have a drink in the connecting bar while Jay and his assistant counted the Till for a good 30mins. This would have been okay if not for the rudeness he insisted we come back another time more convenient for him. We had arrived after a flight from Melbourne and having traveled nearly 26 hours found this very rude and could have been handled better. Upon being allocated a room on the top floor, which with little to no direction on how to get there was the start of some bad service. To round out the room we had, literally had no ventilation and was more like a prison camp bunk than hostel. The noise was appalling as the room next door had a 24hr disco with swing and people coming and going on a tuesday night at 2pm was unacceptable. I stayed at other hostels that were a million times better than this. And lastly the service was unhelpful and the wifi... what wifi? Avoid.
