Very cheap but I guess you get what you pay for! Although they had their own parking it wasn't maintained. The hostel had no carpet in the corridors and we where woken up at 7 every morning by them taking it up. It smelt of cat food through out the hostel! We did have a room to our self but... More

I stayed in rooftop for nearly 2 months while working in Sydney, and for me it was just what I needed. Glebe is a lovely location and not too far out of the city (there's a regular bus service from just outside the hostel) it also has a lovely market every Saturday that I would highly recommend . The hostel... More

this was the first hostel on our journey which had an air conditioning. And that's a very important thing when you visit australia during july - it's friggin' cold winter! There is no wifi, but computers with internet in every room. the view from the rooftop is amazing - you see the whole skyline from sydney downtown. Due the hostel... More

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
