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

I visited in March so my review may be out of date as they were installing a brand new kitchen whilst we were there, so I imagine it's much better - the hostel is fairly new so the owners seem to be going the right way to getting it sorted. Staff there are friendly and like to get people involved... More
