This is a hostel which is dominated by teenagers and young adults. Much partying, many people coming home late at night. If you are young and social, you will love it here. The general accomodation is in share rooms, varying from four people per dorm and up. Showers and lavatories are shared per floor, and kitchen is public for everyone.... More

I stayed here December 2014 but forgot to write a review. The staff on the reception were so lovely. I had lost my bank card in Asia before getting to Australia so had some difficulties trying to pay. They were so lovely, listened to me when I was balling my eyes out and helped me. It was the guy from... More

Wouldn't say anything negative about this hostel. Great location, clean and loads of events planned at night. Would be great for solo traveller. Bedrooms were spacious and lockers were the perfect size. Staff are very friendly at all times. Had a great week here.

I've stayed at this hostel a few times. My experience there has always been amazing with regards to the facilities and the staff. The rooms were very large; beds in the room are very comfortable; the duvets are cozy; and the showers/toilets are always clean. The lockers in the rooms are the largest ones I've ever seen. You can fit... More

Awesome location, clean Bathrooms&Showers, usually tidy shared dorms, clean and big kitchen, and the most important thing, which makes the big difference against the other hostels, it's the great atmosphere.

Ok; maybe I am a bit older and was traveling alone so looking for a cheap alternative to a costly hotel in Sydney. This is very much a hostel for teens or slightly older looking for fun or to hook up. No towels (extra charge); no soap in the showers (bring your own soap, shampoo etc). Rooms are very small;...
