It was brash, noisy and in a well dodgy part of the city. As a lone female traveller I didn't stay out late unless I was with other people and felt a bit vulnerable at times walking in the local area. I always felt safe inside though. My room was good and the bed was comfy enough. I didn't find... More

Dear oh dear, this hostel has provided me with some interesting stories to tell. Everybody is crazy, everybody gets drunk, but everybody is amazing! The rooms are kind of dirty and the building could do with some work, but the atmosphere gives you the best value in Sydney. I spent over a week here, I just couldn't leave!

Stayed here in 1992 when it was called Barncleuth House Hostel. Was a great place with lots of atmosphere, although a bit dirty - looks like they still have the same bunk beds. The manager/owner was having a few financial difficulties at the time so was offering work to backpackers selling dried flowers around Sydney in a basket. We even... More

We stayed in a double room on the top floor of this quirky hostel. It was quiet and the staff were friendly. the bed was not the comfiest but hostels are hostels! And it was fine for us. The location was good for us because we weren't in Sydney for very long, I think this would be a great place... More

I read some terrible reviews of this place but booked it as a last resort for NY Eve. I was not completely ripped off like other hostels tried to and the hostel looked ok although the pictures of it are obviously years old. When I checked in my bed still had the dirty sheets on it and I had to... More

There should never be a reason to stay in such a flithy, poorly maintained place. Sydney has a wide range of accomodations and many hostels. This happens to be one of the cheapest and I can certainly sympathise with travellers on a budget (as I was) but this place is too disgusting to be worth saving a couple of dollars... More
