Stayed in this for over a year on 2 separate occasions. Both times I love it. Made ever last memories and created the person and gave me valuable experience. The atmosphere is party hard. If that is what you like then you'll love this place. Was always something different each night in the cross with free drinks involved. Staff were... More

Don't expect anything other than a hostel for long term residents that party most nights. We stayed here while trying to find jobs which wasn't the best idea, but we did have a good few nights here that we won't forget any time soon!! The hostel as a whole isn't very clean at all (our room wasn't cleaned once the... More

Stayed at brados with a friend in June 2015. It was our first hostel in Australia. We needed cheap accomodation so weren't expecting much, but it was pretty appalling. The 14 bed dorm we stayed in was absolutely filthy, drink spilled all over the floor, rotting food and dirty beds and sheets. I'm used to party hostels so the noise... More

Stayed here back in September and had a fantastic time for the five days I stayed. The location is good and only a short walking distance to the Sydney harbour bridge and main shopping centres. Met a fantastic bunch of people and had a lot of fun playing drinking games and going out on some of hostels featured nights. There... More

This was the first time I had ever stayed in a hostel. I wasn't impressed (I went on a club 18-30 holiday in Kavos when I was a teenager so I know what to expect with cheap accommodation. However this was bad even when compared with that!) When I arrived, I was given a pillowcase, a fitted bed sheet and... More

We had originally booked to stay at hump backpackers, but an error in the booking system meant that our booking hadn't been made and we were sent to stay here, with the stipulation that the price would be the same however we would be staying in separate rooms due to that being the only availability. Unhappy with this but with... More

This has to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in over my 9 months of traveling. It has everything; free breakfast, free wifi throughout the hostel, hundreds of recent movies, free gym, a/c and best of all friendly staff! The hostel is in a great location, the train station a 2 minute walk with great train lines around... More
