This hostel was within walking distance from everything which was great and was reasonably priced. The room was clean but it was facing the street so was very loud. The fire alarm was triggered twice within the first night I was there so the hostel was evacuated. The staff were very welcoming. I was not too impressed with the incredibly... More

That gets washed and replaced with every new customer. But the Blankets (that you will need for more than half the year)... The Blankets... More

Please read my review: The room: The carpet wasn't the cleanest. The table had strange red stains. The drawers of the wardrobe came apart upon opening. It doesn't feel good. The cold: Our room is cold. There is no heating. There were no blankets in the room. They delivered a couple of blankets later. At night time it still got... More

Facilities are pretty good, shower (huge!) and bathroom (tiny) on each floor. Rooms were a good size. Private room,Thin walls, you get a fridge which is handy cause there's no... More

Close to central, very extensive transport network. Around the hostel, you could explore the CBD area of Sydney, also stone away from China Town, heaps of yummy Chinese food, my favorite! I recommend this hostel to those travellers who wants the perfect location!!

Rooms were clean and on good condition. Wasn't bothered with any noise-stayed on same level as pool (can't remember what number level!) but was quiet. Cafe downstairs do a damn good brekkie too. Only reason 5 stars wasn't given for everything was that we requested two rooms next to each other and this wasn't listened to so one room was... More

Good location for the places I wanted to explore - Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Fish Market - walkable distance and the trams stop closeby. Central train station is about 200 metres away if you wanted to explore further afield. Lots of restaurants and small convenience shops at your doorstep. I only needed a room and shower for two nights as I... More
