Great hostel!
Great hostel in a perfect location. Staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in the 6-bed female dorm (room 211). Bed was comfortable, the room was big and there was plenty of space to store all of my belongings. The only downside that I could find was that there wasn't powerpoints beside each of the beds so made it difficult to charge my electronics. There's also plenty of free street parking in front of the hostel.

Great value hostel
It was good stay and our double room was better than expected with fridge, coffee, milk, tea and big size room. The downside of the property are the paper wall it has where you can hear everything. Very close to restaurants, marina etc

6/10 Good

It was my first stay in a hostel ever. I booked myself into Double Ensuite room. Room wasn’t as nice as I have expected. It looked a bit like a room in a prison to be fair. Bedding was old and dirty, especially white cushion. Extremely stained. Dust and dirt everywhere on the floor. I know it’s a hostel so I have expected it to be a bit louder but my first night (Monday) people partied until 3am which was a sucker for me as I had to be up before 7am. Personally, felt slightly unsafe on my first night then I got over it. There was TV, kettle and a fridge so that was handy but I probably expected it to be more ‘hotel’ like service. You live, you learn. If you are young and on a budget then sure, go for it. I booked it as it was the only option available for the dates that I was coming and under $150 a night. Chick on the reception was lovely and tried to be helpful. Made me feel a bit more comfortable. Personally, I wouldnt stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Lovely open layout with plenty of courtyard permitted sun to flood the big fresh space. Stayed in a Queen Ensuite with my partner and everything was clean, functioning, efficent, and exceeded expectation. Such a nominal walk to the hot strip of P. Dougie its beyond convenient for gettin out and about, not to mention the provided ease of parking right in fornt of the hostel, shaded by some beautiful ol FNQ-style trees. Healthy vibrant public spaces too
