This hostel was terrible. We stayed 10 nights. The first shower I had the tap literally fell off the wall when I was turning it shooting out a freezing cold jet of water. I had to stand there and hold the tap over the water to stop it shooting out all over the bathroom while the one staff member sorted... More

This was the first hostel my friends and I stayed in since arriving in Australia, we booked to stay 4 nights and ended up staying for over 2 weeks. Having travelled down the East Coast I can safely say Hump is still my favourite hostel, ever! The staff are so friendly, and you are guaranteed to meet some amazing friends... More

Very professional and courteous staff and very helpful. They go out of their way to help you with what you need and are very friendly. Most places treat you like another guest this place treats you like family. They have tons of activities that go on to help guest save money and to get to know other guest.

Everyone is friendly (staff and guest). This is the most sociable hostel I've stayed in so far. You will definitely make friends here. The hostel have events on everyday/night. However a lot of the people who stay here are long term lodgers. So if you are only there for a short period of time you can feel left out a... More

Visited Sydney for the writers festival/vivid at the start of June - it's in central KingsX so it's great for nightlife, the hostel itself put on a good mix of events too. In the day time there's free tea and coffee and wifi, and a huuuuge TV in a homely living room for lazy days when you're not feeling another... More

An amazing hostel for poor travellers who love to socialise and party! There are so many free things associated with this hostel - free breakfasts (including Sunday pancakes), free events, free transport from the airport on a 4+ night stay. There's something organised every night including free nightclub entry or free food/beer. The staff are also exceptionally friendly! The actual... More
