Right beside central station, close to darling harbour, close to China town, a nightclub full of backpackers on site, a cafe on site and heaps of freebies like free coffee what more could you need? The rooms were very clean and the beds were nice and comfortable. There is music playing in the elevator that makes it feel like a... More

Had a great stay at this centrally located, large scale hostel. Staff were friendly and polite, room was clean, plenty of plug sockets and bathrooms and nice kitchen area that was just a bit crowded at times. Can be very loud at night, especially Wednesdays as it caters for backpacker/student nights in the bar below.

This hostel was in the heart of the city, With the Central train station directly opposite. There was an airport shuttle easily available at a fair price. I've stayed for only 2 days but wished I stayed longer. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy with our own socket and light switch. The bathrooms were very clean and spacious.

Had to pay for an extra night because they didn't have my paymemt in the system. Staff made no effort to find a solution. Big rooms, bathrooms and kichen are okay, but definitely not worth 37$/night for a 10 share room! There are many better options around.

Stayed here for just one night from the UK en route to tasmania. Arrived at 7am and checked in with no hassle thankfully after my 25hr travel time!! Room was clean and tidy and exactly what I'd expected. I opted for a room with a shared bathroom and once I'd found it (for me was just down the hall) it... More
