6/10 Good

Cheap and cheerful, and I've had worse!
A nice welcome and helpful girl on reception upon arrival and check-out, free continental breakfast and free coffee was most welcome. Nice outdoor area, very good WiFi. Shared bathroom for room 1 at least was via the shared kitchen, not overly convenient! Dorm room 1 had no air conditioning so two huge noisy fans and an open window were needed to cool the place down. All the staff were lovely too. The area's not bad but not great either. It's quite close to major roads through and out of the city, so can get rather noisy. Better than being right in the centre next to drinking venues I suppose! Overall I would stay again, but it wouldn't be my top choice. If Australia wasn't so expensive for hotels I'd have stayed in one of those!

Le gros point noir de cette auberge : les lits, extrêmement grinçants et qui tremblent dès que quelqu'un marche dans la chambre. Autre point négatif : il s'agit d'une auberge plutôt festive donc il vaut mieux s'attendre à avoir du monde et du bruit jusque parfois tard le soir. Sinon l'accueil était correct, l'auberge est assez bien située, à une grosse vingtaine de minutes de l'opéra à pieds. Pas assez de douche compte tenu du monde par contre.
