Nothing at all bad to say about this place. It's not the most modern of hostels but it's VERY clean, dirt cheap, free wifi that actually works, has free rice, bread, jams, teas and coffees on 24/7, my room has a nice clean en suite with a good shower, the beds are clean and comfortable and has foxtel.

Our weekly rate for an 8 bed dorm worked out around 18dollars a night, which is amazing considering we're here at the start of peak season and everywhere... More

We stayed for two months whilst working in Sydney. The owner is very friendly and kept dropping the price each week from $120 - $100 by week 3. This was the best we found locally at the time. Dorms are 8 or 6 bed. Each has a fridge and bathroom attached. They get cleaned every day. The place is a... More
