First place i went to once i landed, was part of the STA travel package in England. Its cheap I guess that's why you get what you paid for.. The rooms are tiny, they stink, no where to put luggage, the tv room is dirty, the kitchen is small and lacks everything. There are so many stairs and the reception... More

I know that this is a low-budget backpacker hostel. But there are certain things I expect even of such an accomodation: Cleanliness, a kitchen that "works" and rooms you can sleep in. Good: - Location (near Kings Kross, only 20-30 min from Sydney CBD) - Rooftop terrace; nice views of the Harbour Bridge and the surroundings - Showers are pretty... More

Clean enough, gave you breakfast for free, could sleep fairly well. The beds were just foam so alright but not amazing. I got the impression some rooms were louder (from the people in them), ours was pretty quiet.

The place is pretty decent for the money you pay. I'm staying in one of the cheapest rooms that some of the workers are staying in. I really dislike melting into my sheets every night because there are only two fans in this room and it's a 10 bed dorm, if your comfortable stealing the fan off a fellow backpacker... More

The rooms are tiny, and very very messy. It is very hot in the rooms and the windows doesnt fully open so there's alwaysabad smell. Also only one fan which isn't enough. The rooms are in the third floor, the bathroom in the second, the kitchen in the first. NO ELEVATOR!!! Roaches on the roof, and dirty showers. Only good... More

Very basic accommodation. Rooms vary in size and I discovered I actually had quite the bum deal. Free breakfast is really just minimal but it's free and its less food to worry about. Kitchen is a little too small and utensils are lacking which makes cooking quite an ordeal at times. Rooms can get unbearably hot which is probably my... More

After booking the work and travel programme with STA. This was the hostel I stayed in. The hostel is in a good location, 10 mins to Kings Cross and supermarket, 15 mins to city centre. But, there is 6 flights of stairs to the rooms (no lift In building), then down 2 for the bathroom, 2 for the kitchen and... More

Boomerang backpackers is, as it says in its name, a backpackers. It's quite a small hostel, with one floor of rooms and bathrooms on another floor and the kitchen and tv room on a different floor. The kitchen is quite small and can get very crowded at breakfast. It has lots of fridges but doesn't have a great range of... More

I did not enjoy my stay here. The beds are horrible, I don't think they're even mattresses, just pieces of foam. The kitchen was very small. The bathrooms are all one one floor. The rooms are six flight of stairs up, so if you're travelling with a lot of luggage this is not the place for you. Good location, but... More

I've been there for the firs time on March 2007 and came back again May 2008, in just one year everything changed. They depend way too much on the receptionist, so if the are not good the hostel will be a mess. Last time i've been there 2012 it was terrible, the reception had no idea, the toilets were dirty,...
