790 on George street is in a good location only a 2minute walk away from the central station and good stores. I stayed in a six bed dorm. The beds are comfortable with memory foam mattresses and clean sheets. However, the room is quite tired and smells stale. In general the hostel is not well cleaned. Eg Shower room and... More

What a dreadful, filthy and unfriendly place! From inhospitable staff who wander around like zombies, pretending to clean this place to the very prison/basement cafeteria and overpriced wifi I wonder why this place is Tripadvisors number two of all hostels.

Just near YHA, but room rates are cheaper! It's a good choice if you wanna stay in city. Staff are friendly. Room is clean. Bed is comfortable. And appreciate there is a charger inside the locker. But kitchen is a bit dirty and too crowded........

I stayed with a friend in the suburbs which was 1-1.5 hours by train from CBD while I was in Sydney, but because of my packed itinerary, I decided to stay at 790 for 1 night. It was my very first night sleeping in a backpacker style hostel, I paid 29 AUD for 1 night in a female only dorm... More

Hey Wil, Thanks for taking the time to make a review - i appreciate your comments and am sorry to hear your stay wasn't as great as it could have been. We are a very large hostel and while all our doors (including the bathrooms) are key coded for security purposes, occasionally people do let their friends from other rooms... More

I have lived in the hostel for around 9 months now and it has made my time in Sydney a lot more manageable. The hostel is located less than 100m walk (1min) walk from Central station so for travel is second to none. Its extremely easy to find your way around and the staff are amazing at helping out/recommending places... More

I've stayed here a couple of times and always enjoyed the cleanness, friendly & helpfull staff, the great location (close to central station, George st, shopping etc.) and the price. It's a pretty good value for money regarding Sydney-hostel-standard.

This place is very much a "get what you pay for" hostel. I paid $30 and got a bed for the night and somewhere to leave my bag when I went to a show on the other side of the city. There are good things about this place - aside from being cheap, the location is great, check in is... More

good place for backpackers. Near the railway station and just in front of one of the biggest streets of the city. Clean and quiet. Wi-fi is not great but good. the staff is always present to solve problems. Thank you!!
