Perfect location, just next to the train station and with plenty of eatery nearby. The staff are friendly and helpful and the dining area was clean. However, there's quite a few things that I am not satisfy with. Firstly, it was an old mattress, I can feel the spring inside it was broken the minute I lie down. Secondly, there's... More

Stayed in a four share with my boyfriend, room was very messy due to two girls we were sharing with. Could do with a window to let some fresh air in! We also asked in advance to be put with some family members who were visiting but they later claimed the girls had reserved the beds... which the girls later... More

Jackaroo is one of my favourite hostels I've stayed in on my 8 month trip. The kitchen is the cleanest hostel kitchen I've ever seen! The free breakfast is lovely and is available until 10 which is great seeing as a lot of hostels end their free breakfast way earlier than backpackers want to get up! The common area is... More

They have free wifi in the hostel what is really good. The showers and toilets are really clean and the staff where friendly. The negatives: The room... More

Had a fantastic stay here! First hostel in Australia and it set a high benchmark. Great social areas; pool room, movie room (great choices of movies), games console and a great reception/lounge area. Free wifi worked a treat and the rooms were really clean! Beds were usually a good nights kip. Free breakfast was an added bonus and the kitchen... More

I booked this hostel because it was advertised with air con in all rooms and the price was good. What I found was a fan in the small room. My room was pretty warm and there is no possibility to open a window. The hostel is kind of clean. especially the showers and toilets. My room wasn't, because the staff... More

This is your standard, basic hostel that you could find in any number of countries. Although this might, at first, seem like a great deal as accommodation in Sydney is quite expensive, booking a standard hotel comes out to the same price and you don't have to settle for this relatively expensive hostel in one of the less interesting areas...

Stayed for 4 nights last week and loved it. It's really clean and well kept. There's a big tv room with loads of movies available to watch. Another lounge area at reception with 4/5 computers and a TV with a games console (not sure what type!) The kitchen is a little small but it has everything you need including an... More

I stayed here for a week in November while trying to find a job in Sydney. The hostel itself is very clean and housekeeping do the rooms every day. The kitchen is a little small but has everything you need, including an oven and there is a lovely roof terrace, if you’re willing to climb the many levels of stairs!... More

Stayed here as a couple for 3 nights. Overall it was a great stay, good for our needs. Couple of big downsides that are important to mention...bear with me! Pro's: - free wifi (works brilliantly) and computer use, in a nice lounge area. 4 bed dorm room was small but had a window and fan, so was cool at night.... More
