I can recommend 790 on George ( backpackers ) , friendly staff , the place is clean. It's possible to get a private room also. Good value for the money since Sydney is an expensive city to visit. I stayed there twice on my visit in Australia. When I go back I will stay there again. Very good central location.... More

My friends and I were joining a conference so we had to stay one night in Sydney. I wasn't aware that this hostel is that bad. I have stayed in several hostel and backpackers before, but this is really the worst. 1. noise there is a bar right next and my bed was just right across it. I guess if... More

I stayed here almost a week with some friends. The staff at reception was kind and we could check in early in the morning, which was great! The hostel itself is pretty basic. Our room was clean, and so was the bathroom. The room was quite chilly even though we had a heater. The kitchen is in the basement, it's... More

I usually stay in a single room without ensuite. It really is about the cheapest place to stay in the Sydney CBD if you want your own room. Stunning that they can offer you your own room for as little as around A$70 really even if you don't have air conditioning, mini-bar or TV. Despite being right in the town... More

I stayed for a week in a four bed female dorm which was a good size, clean and comfortable. It is in a great location, an easy walk to darling harbour and right by central station if you want to go anywhere else. The bathrooms were also clean and the staff very helpful. With what you get for the price... More

I cannot express how much I love this hostel! Intending to only stay 4 nights, and ended up staying for three months! There isn't one thing I could list about this hostel that I don't like. I was really upset when I had to leave. ... I might go back for a cheeky stay next month!

The three backpacker's C's ... Clean, central and cheap. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, with generous size lockers. A little bit of noise from the busy streets below but not too bad. The showers and toilets were modern, and also very clean. The location is fantastic. It's a good 40minute walk to the harbour, but catch the free... More

I never book hostels for to many nights in case I don't like it. I originally booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 6 nights. 790 is in a great location, just round the corner from Central station, less then 15 minutes from the airport via train and everything else is pretty close by to. I checked in... More
