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.

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

We came here after staying at Wake Up Hostel which if you have stayed there, you will know is a fantastic hostel! Well, where do I... More

Great hostel in a rather strange part of town. Was slightly scared by the area when I first got there but the hostel was nice. Good facilities and friendly staff. Stayed here two nights, but would go back.
