We stayed here for four nights because it was the best option we could find (we didn't plan much...), and it ended up being pretty good. Since we were staying for 4nights we had free pick up from the airport, but the company that runs them was not the best... We had to wait for over 2 hours. Anyway, that... More

Stayed here for about a week while in Sydney, price was pretty fair at $33 a night for a 3 bed dorm. There are communal showers/toilets on each floor which could be better, a bit below standard to be honest but they are very clean. Kitchen is small considering the size of the hostel but does the job The communal... More

Stayed here for one night after a night of going clubbing. Place is clean rooms were outdated but clean and toilets were seperated from females and males. Similar to a door room. If your staying for a night I would recommend to stay here for a place to crash the night. Beware that when you check in you have to... More

My very first impression was the guy at the reception(with glasses). He was very friendly and professional. He knew his job and very at it. He addressed everything about the hostel and made sure I understood everything. The room was great. There were bed lights and lockers. The bathrooms weren't that great.. a bit dirty.

Very dingy and shabby place. Pillows and bed and weird stains on them. Cockroaches in my room. Bathrooms very dirty - almost didn't bother showering. Very nice and friendly staff. The whole hostel had a weird smell to it. However if you are travelling budget - it is bareable! But I recommend any of the YHA hostels :)

It wasn't that clean and the bed sheets had stains on them. Staff were quite friendly and it had free wifi although... More

The location is central to KC but a walk tome CBD. The rooms was clean and there is a small locking space per person. The luggage room stank and was precariously stacked high. The free breakfast was good - but the common room was dark and dank. Similarly to the bathrooms, actually the whole hostel. Wifi is free but intermittent... More
