I think this hostel is a big one, always full which means they earn money enough to make a big remodelation, which is, certainly, necessary. Old, needs painted, carpets full of patches, etc. Besides they mix dorm rooms with private ones which makes sleping quite difficult. It has been one of the worst I have slept in Australia. Hostels like Rambutan, in Townswille are great. PS: I have chosen 4 description items just because there is no other way to continue and finalise the interview,.

Location close to trains, busses and city. Friendly hosts and good service, nice atmosphere. Room at 8th floor not noisy, though much traffic and street works around. Private room and private bathroom clean and with all you need. Recommendable if you like staying at Youth Hostals, we would come here again!

Overall it was a decent place to stay. Although I stayed in a four girl dorm, I found the room very messy. The girls were staying there for weeks and treated it like their bedroom with all their stuff spread throughout the room, so there was hardly any room to put my stuff. There was also a male in the room and one of the occupants tried to sneak him back in at 2:30 in the morning. Besides the smal hiccups, everything else was clean and easily accessible.
