This place should not be even given the permit to run. Seriously! not even a soap in the bathrooms to wash your hands with. Blankets are dodgy, room is dusty and bathroom is unhygienic. For the price they asked us for, what a complete rip off. We learned our lesson pretty hard.

I don't really stay in Hostels these days but due to the outrageous prices in Sydney I wasn't willing to fork out for a hotel. We opted for a private room which was clean, had a fridge and a new bunk bed. The bathrooms were clean (although I'd prefer to have the toilets separately, as the floor gets so wet)... More

This property should not be listed on many of the hotel comparison websites as it's really not a hotel at all. It's a basic hostel at best, yet they charge like a 3 star hotel would. Shared bathroom, no air conditioning, no toiletries, no proper bedding, you can't even get the bedroom dark due to windows over the door into... More

Stayed here with my sister for two nights on a quick trip to Sydney. As we were only after a place to sleep, the price of Sydney Central Inn was appealing at $60 a night for the two of us. After reading mixed reviews, I was really hoping that the place wouldn't be a total cesspit. Thankfully it wasn't; I... More

Sydney Central Inn is a hostel with a great location, friendly & helpful stuff, quiet and super clean. This is not an activity hostel, in fact not much is going on, but its a quite place to relax after a hectic day in the city or if you need to get some work done. Rooms are cleaned daily, wifi is...

We stayed here for 8 days. We had a private room and 2 shared bathrooms. Was a comfortable place for 3 people. Bathroom was usually open. Closely located to central station, free bus to Opera house (555), and shops and food! The staff was so helpful, even bought an HDMI cord for us and they now have one for guests.... More

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

This hostel can hardly be called a hostel. It's a disgusting pighole. Way overpriced as well! I talked with one of the cleaning girls and the told me some gruesome details: 1. The bedlinnen is fine. 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
