This is a Trusted Review. Why?

WIth the exception of The palms in Sydney this is the best hostel around.

It's like a house, everyone knows each other, everyone talks to each other it's very comfortable. People seem to stay here for months at a time while working. the location leaves a little to be desired but it is close to the train station so it's not too bad. free internet, showers are nice. it's just very comfortable!
