This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Building is old and a little run down with no frills so don't expect creature comforts. However, it is cleaned on a daily basis and they do provide free WiFi, tv, fridge in each room, cooking facilities (possible to hire cuttlery) etc. This is not a typical hostel for travelers as there are people from all walks of life, e.g., young, old, people inbetween places etc. Having stayed in several hostels throughout Australia this is more of a real-world experience - I recommend a stay!
