I have never been to Australia before and had not stayed in a hostel in nearly a decade. I was pleasantly surprised by how great Bowen Terrace was. It was not all teenagers getting drunk every night and loud parties, so if that's what you're looking for, then this is not the place for you. Instead it's in a quiet neighborhood in a beautiful part of town, surrounded by great bars and restaurants. I see why I met so many people there who'd been coming back for years!
Maria was amazing and made me feel incredibly welcome to her place, as well as show me all the great things to do and see nearby.
The walls were very thin and you can hear everything your neighbor is doing, but at least they were very respectful.
Very convenient to get to the ferry, city bikes, bus, and only a 10 min walk to the CBD. It's a prefect central location to get to all the sights. Highly recommend!More
