“Okey hostel”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Okay hostel. Very small and friendly. However the rooms were very hot, poor air conditioning and useless fan. The kitchen was clean and even the bathrooms. There were only 2 showers and toilets so you often had to wait to use it. It is very close to the CBD and the Blue Cat bus stops right outside the door.

Pros: Great location, Blue Cat stop just in front of the gate. Good atmosphere, safe (you can leave your stuff around).

Cons: This place is absolutely filthy!!! The bathroom: mold, dirty toilet bowls for days, no toilet paper, dirty towels on the floor etc...
The kitchen: dirty plates and cutlery everywhere, bench disgusting, food scraps, bins full and emptied once in a blue moon, smelly and filthy fridge with food that has been left there for ages. The dorms seemed like they hadn't been cleaned for months.

There is a clothes line in a little patio you can access through a French door filled with clothes all the time and so little that you have to squeeze in to put yours.

The outside common area is very tiny and sometimes smelly due to the rubbish bins around. It is very noisy during the weekends due to nightclubs and stripclubs around. You can hear the bass through the walls.

It is very hot in the rooms and the managers turn the aircon on and off whenever they feel like it. It could be freezing one night and boiling the next one.

The lights in the room come from the ceiling so unless you get a sleep mask, the first rays of lights will wake you up, especially on the top bunk. Talking about beds, they are the crappiest ever. One tiny move and the whole thing shake and make squeaky noise, waking up everybody.

And to cap it all the manager is horrible. He is very rude, coming to you if you are staying here, asking you if you have paid your bed in an aggressive way. Always privileging Asians to Westerners. People had to move off their room even though they booked a whole week because apparently some random Asian people had booked it months ago. This situation happened many many times. His wife is OK but the rest of the staff is absolutely useless. They have to ring the manager all the time for any little problem. Like for instance when you want to change room.

Overall stay here only if you have too, it's probably better than other party hostel in the area but still very bad for the price you pay for it.

Room Tip: Don't take a room close to the kitchen. With the noise you won't ba able to sleep. Take the...
