The number of times I heard arguments and fights breaking out here during my short time here (one week) was enough to make me want to never stay here again. It's within walking distance of Darling Harbour, and has great bus links to Downtown, which is its' saving grace!

I stayed in this hostel for around 3 months, purely for the fact it was the cheapest place i could find to stay. It does provide you with a tv, a computer that doesnt work, no wifi either and a small kitchenette that cannot be used unless its for cereal, biscuits and anything that wont set off the fire alarm....

When you stand outside rooftop you think "hmm not sure" but I have loved living here for 2 months. I moved there with some friends I had met at a different hostel and It really felt like we were all a family. The prices are brilliant for what you get, kitchen, ensuite, only 4 people in the room and a... More

Stayed here for a long period over the course of my 12 months back packing in Oz, anytime I returned to Sydney I always stayed there. Staff very friendly and understanding. Fully equipped roof top kitchen with ''AMAZING VIEWS'' of the Sydney Skyline, could spend hours up there. Common room downstairs where you can catch up with friends and have... More

Considering the high prices in Sydney, I would say that it's a very good place to stay! For 3 days or 3 months you can live in a friendly atmosphere, meet poeple, especially if you're looking for a job: the location is just perfect, near the city center in a lovely neighborhood full of bars and restaurants... You can go... More

My friend and I have been spending almost 3 months in this hostel. Nice and very friendly staff, very clean and well equipped rooms, and a wonderful hostel in general for a very cheap price. We were really looking for the catch, but we have never found it. We simply loved this place. It really did become a second home... More

Having read the previous review I have to say I disagree totally with what was said. I've stayed in this hostel on more than one occasion and have never had a problem. I think its great value for money considering every room has an ensuite and all are only 4 bed dorms. I have paid more in other hostels for... More

When I first arrived in my room I thought hmm this might be a really nice place to stay, I might extend for another week. Thank god I did not. ROOM Gladly our aircon is working (although turning off from its own after a couple of hours) so the room can be cool if it's too hot outside. The computer... More

We've had a great stay here. The hostel was clean and the location was excellent as we were pretty much walking distance to what we were interested in. Let me thank Viola, she was very helpful and kind . Australia is far away but i promise....i'll be back
