First of all the hostel (hotel) are on Castlereagh St. and the reception is in George St. (2 block away) so at the beginning we were lost (caring all our luggage) looking for the reception. The WiFi it's only available at the reception and the speed its no good. When we came in to the room there was a dead... More

I have stayed in several hotels all over the world, and have reviewed quite a few of them. This is my lowest rated one ever. I am not too fussy with hotels and hostels, but this is just absurd. When you book online they tell you there is WIFI, which I expect to pay for because you do almost everywhere... More

Okay, the hostel has a good location. But that sort of sums up all the up's with it. It is dirty, with bugs in the rooms, only 2 toilets per floor, and the beds are hard and noisy. Also the hallway seems to be some kind of place for people to party. Earplugs and sleeping mask is a must-have if... More

We had to stay here over new year with a minimum stay of 5 nights. During that time there was not internet in our 'annex' its wasn't very clean and there are only 2 showers per floor! If it hadn't been new year our time in Sydney would have been heavily marred by our accommodation,. As it was we didn't... More

I shared a room in the 5th floor with 4 girls, room was clean, the bed was also not bad, no towels were provided, the shared bathroom was clean also. Though the address sent in the booking confirmation was not right, the local was in George Street and the address mentioned in the confirmation was 249 Castlereagh Street, not too... More

You get what you pay for and some reviews have been harsh (and made me a little nervous). Staff were friendly, quite a few long staying people on their OE - had made friends and shared food - vibe was ok, polite etc. Shower was hot - never had a queue and everything was cleaned at 7am everyday. Didn't get... More

We booked a room here as we arrived in Sydney at 9am and were leaving at 7pm on a night bus, we wanted somewhere to have a shower/sleep/relax! So it was perfect for this! Beds were comfortable, and the shower was hot!! Only problems were checking in at a different hostel down the road, and carrying our luggage up very... More

First night in the hostel my room mate got bitten all over her shoulders and legs. We had noticed upon arrival that the doona covers had not been changed, but the sheets and pillow case were. When we returned to the hostel the second night, I lay on my bed for ten minutes and immediately noticed that I was starting... More
