This hostel is a bit pricy, but the standard is much better than other hostels. It's generally clean and the silent hours are respected, contrary to many other hostels in Australia. The location is good, with a 3 minute walk to the subway and 5 minute walk to the nearest super market. Walking into the city takes about 20 minutes, and 30 minutes to the harbour.
Few power outlets, poor Wi-Fi in the second floor and the beds were a bit squeaky.
