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

I have stayed at brados on and off for the past year of my working visa, always finding it a great base to come back to and often seeing familiar faces. I first booked in to only stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for months. I was working in Sydney so it was the perfect base. So close... More

Well when you first arrive the staff are very helpful with bringing the bags up the stairs to the rooms. Everyone is very nice and said hello to me in the common areas, great party's and events were organised and super location for an easy walk home. If you want to party late in the kitchen you can because it's... More

Rooms Are vacuumed once a week. Cockroaches everywhere. Human faeces in the shared showers.. Always dirty. No soap. Staff are very unprofessional & rude... More

Stayed here for three nights. Rooms were dirty and the bathrooms very unclean. They looked like they belonged in a prison. That said the rates include free breakfast and the place is bouncing every night almost like a disco but only till about 10 so you can easily get to sleep.
