Nice bar, decent hostel facilities. Some staff seemed either reluctant or unable to assist with some things. Bar is loud until 12 everynight, so sleep can be hard. Great location though, very central.

this place was great. i have areda some not so good reviews about it but i decided to give it ago, the check in was fantastic, i booked my whitsundays trip with them also which the staff were very helpful and informative. they told me that it has recently been taken over by new owners and expect a lot of changes. i found the rooms very big and clean the ensuite was really good to have only sharing with the people in the room. the price was cheap for what you get and the location being right in the middle of the town and only a short walk from the greyhound station. I would definatley reccomend staying here, the food was amazing and cheap with having th bar there made it easy to meet people while travelling alone.

What an awful hostel! Staff is very unfriendly! I had to move rooms almost every day, this means check out, leave your bags in storage and check in two hours later when it's super busy! Rooms where clean, but hostel is really noisy. I would NOT recommend this hostel to anyone. Especially due to the staff. NOt helpful ore friendly at all. (except for the woman with black hair).

There is only one bathroom for a dorm with 8 people, impossible situation when everyone leaves at the same time in the morning. Loud music until midnight and a leaf blower at 7am, both just in front of the building, impossible to sleep. I give it 2 stars because of the good location and the helpful receptionists.
