we booked 3 beds in a shared room for 3 nights. First night, we were all in a different room in a different level because the hostel was "very busy at the moment". Second night we couldn't get into our room before 2 am because none of the electronic cards we had were working. The front desk closes very early... More

We arrived quite late at night. The reception area was closed to had to phone a number. A half drunk french man opened the door with a face full of burger. Saying he expected only 2 people. Instantly we were split up (there was 3 of us). We weren't shown around at all, the rooms were appalling, the toilets were... More

I stayed at the Chiliblue in June and found it to be a friendly and very welcoming hostel. The staff go out of their way to welcome new people and help you with your onward or future travel plans. The facilities were pretty clean and the hostel is nicely situated in Potts Point which is close to all amenities. Its... More

The hostel was having a bit of painting work done when I stayed so we were not allowed to use the kitchen for 1 day but it was nice when the the work was finished. The facilities were average as the rooms don't have their own bathroom. Overall I paid about $18 per night (winter rate) and I had a... More

We loved this place. We met a load of friends here and had lots of parties and fun - always pleasant memories as this was the first hostel in Australia that we stayed in. Great social vibe about the place and always new friends to be made. Great area too. Not sure why some reports are moaning about the showers/shower... More

I suggest everybody to stay so far away from this hostel, probably one of the dirtiest hostel in Australia. Me and my girlfriend spent in Chili Blu backpackers 1 week because at least the price was really cheap compared with other hostels in Sydney, Service from the reception is bad, rooms dirty,toilets with no doors, corridors too small to pass...

I just stayed one day, enought to take the coldest shower of my life. Shower's doors can't be locked, and some doesn't have any door in fact. Same for most of the toilets. Not enought toilets for everybody. Noisy. Dirty. Oh and if you want to enjoy the free breakfast bring your own plates, bowl and everything because there is... More

My friend and I stayed at the hostel for one week, with the plan of seeing if we liked it and then staying for longer. After the first night we wanted to leave. There were cockroaches on the kitchen sides, in the toilets (plus there are not enough toilets for the amount of people staying) and the locks on the... More

This it's to be a friendly fun hostle but recently the owner has become aggressive and power mad throwing people out for fun. If you wish to have a fun and enjoyful time in Sydney and not be harassed by the owner (Mo) stay else where. Previous long stayer.

Got there in the morning and was already appalled and the unexisting hygiene, the derelict facilities (especially common areas) and general decrepit look. Little did I know that the worst was yet to come. When I tried to go to sleep, jetlagged as one can be, at 10pm, the people in the room decided to get high. This was followed... More
