Typical Back packers

Cheap, Cheap and Cheap
it was a really cold week when i was there and they only give you a thin blanket which meant i froze every night and if i wasn't kept awake by the cold it was my incredibly squeaky bed. Other then that it was to be expected for a backpackers.

Small but crowded hostel

Rooms have own toilet and bath, close to tram station, close to the beach
What I like most is that it's just a walking distance to the beach. What I didn't like though is that it's a small hostel but really packed with guests, it's really crowded especially during nighttime. Because of this, it looks like the hostel is messy at times. I lost my shades in this hostel's lobby area, and it was never returned. Is this worth the money I paid? Most probably. But, I think they can do better. The hostel needs some upgrading.

Value for money!

Location. Price. Friendly staff.
The only problem was too much noise from other dorm mates till late night. Could not get a good rest. Otherwise no complaints and fairly satisfied.

dirty, uncomfortable, it was a nightmare.

15min distance from surfer's paradise, that' the only strength.
Dusty, dirty, more then 10 mosquitos in a room, and a giant cockerach is my room mate too. There is no air conditioner.
