We have stayed at this property more than once over the past three years. Its a great location, the motel type rooms are great ( as opposed to the backpacker bunk rooms - which I cannot comment upon). Anyone staying should make themselves familiar with the location of the Museum Train station as its just a 2 minute walk. The... More

Stayed here twice, 3 night stay upon arrival in Sydney and also a 2 night when Departing. Stayed in a Private Room, price is reasonable for Sydney. Hostel is a 5 minute walk to the CBD and really close to Sydney's Central Station which makes it quite convenient when you've just been on a 22hr flight Our Room was pretty... More

I would like to begin my saying that all of my reviews have been honest and fair because I like to believe that I can trust Trip Advisor reviews. The reason for this sentence will become clear. From the first few moments, this hostel appears fine. We were put into a four bed dorm and although it is relatively expensive... More

It's a cool place where the boss can play the guitare, it is warm hostel and one of the cheapest. Very well located. You can also watch the TV and meet people in the living room. The plus is that you can use all the kitchen : fridge, oven, casserols... It was 3 good days for me.

I love the feel and location of this place. It is a lot less crowded than other hostels and easier to meet people. The manager Danny is very personable. A couple nights he brought out his guitar and had fun with the guests. Request Bob Dylan if you are ever there. I always slept good and it was easy to... More
