Stayed over the Christmas period in 2014 and had a wonderful time. The people are like a big lovely family who are out all together nearly every single night. The rooftop is a cool place to hang out with your own friends and other people. The facilities like kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are good enough and the way the place... More

I stayed at the funk house early january and arrived early after a morning flight. We were greeted by a charming girl and had to put our bags in the storage room. On the way there, there was vomit everywhere on the carpet in the corridor, empty bottles of beer and a strong smell of cold weed. The storage room... More

So I decided to come watch a bit of TV but on the bean bag beside me a small blonde haired geordie lass was boasting about how much she loves ketamine. I Duno how... More

We had a wonderful time at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's on a great location in one of the oldest parts of the centre. Sydney stole my heart and I will definitely come back to this town and this hostel.

Myself and friends have stayed twice now and have booked in for a third visit :) They also have a roof garden and for $5 every Friday they have a BBQ with plenty of food options.... More

THIS HOSTEL IS TO AVOID AT ALL COSTS ! Staff was nice and place is somewhat easy to get to and okay situated, but mostly if your are into red light districts/bars area. Those are the only "good" points about this place. The rest is all so wrong ! Mold in showers/bathrooms. Stained carpet and linens. Sticky doors to rooms... More
