I liked this hostel. We stayed here for 2 nights in a 6-bed, but we were there in June and had the room to ourselves which was obviously a bonus! We had a room that was on the back so was quiet- I assume the rooms by the walkway get noisy as the WHV bunch sit out there drinking of an evening. But to be honest, they do that at all hostels, so that's to be expected :) Room was clean and each had a big locker and i remember a mirror, shelf and plenty of sockets etc in the room!
Kitchen/social area was great, maintained well & plenty of space. Bathrooms were kept really clean too, can't complain although i do agree it's a bit odd to have to walk through the social bit for them (but the whole hostel has an interesting layout, so it really didn't bother me that much).
laundry facilities were also decent.
Whilst location isn't in the heart of the action, they offer a regular free shuttle to the bus station in surfers which is perfect- if you miss that or need really early/late, you can easily catch a public bus from across the street- we did and it came on time etc.
Oh and also the staff that were downstairs were great (the reception is separate downstairs) and helped me sort out the YHA card, quick and painless!
