I just stayed in this place from 7th till 11th April 2015 with a female friend within a shared 4 bed room....found the place is very closed to the Sydney central train station, only 3-5 minutes by walking. Along the George street, we could find QVB and Circular Quay. This place also closed to Paddys market and Pitt street. Very... More

Real place for young men and girls. I was staying here twice at 6-person mixed dorm room and was hell-like satisfied. The bad is that wifi is not free, breakfast is paid too, location is not close to townhall station and there are no any Woolworth/coles around.

We usually check reviews before booking any accommodation. After staying for a few days we couldn't believe that this hostel ranked number 2 in Sydney. The rooms, shower units and corridors are in desperate need of repairs, but the worst thing was the communal kitchen in the basement which wasn't inviting to cook at all and simply smelled horrific once...

Staff: The staff were really helpful, nice and very friendly (I couldn’t think of anyone at the counter that didn’t greeted me) Location: The hostel is well located with good transport link (just a short walk to Central station). Easy to travel around i.e. Opera house, Sydney Bridge, Market Streets, Queen Victoria Building, Chinatown, Paddy’s Market Town Hall, Circular Quay... More

Stayed one night. Had a room on 2nd floor with double lower and single upper bunk, large storage locker and a chair. Enough room to put packs on floor without climbing over them. Air con worked well and was quiet. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Reasonably sized common room, larger kitchen and laundry in basement (didn't cook while there).... More

I stayed here for a couple of weeks and on the whole it was a good experience. The staff were really helpful and made an effort to say hi to you and sort out any problems. The rooms were basic but clean and quite spacious for a city hostel. There were a real mix of people staying, not just a... More

The hostel is in a nice location right next to central station. Walk up George Street you get to the Opera House in 20-25 minutes and you will walk by most the sights already on your way there. There is also the free city bus 555 that stops several times on George St. The hostel itself is nice, friendly staff... More

Throughout my time in the hostel I felt well and truly at home. Everyone was very friendly staff and guests included. The basement downstairs is a great place to meet everyone and get chatting you never alone here! I thought it was a great place for me as a backpacker to be. However, anyone who's not a backpacker expect to... More

I stayed at this hostel for one night, it was not very clean but definitely fine! There were good separate bathrooms which you could only enter with your own key. My biggest concern as a backpacker was the kitchen, the stoves where not working very well and it was NOT clean, and I believe that kitchens and plates really should... More

The hostel is in a good location but it is super noisy as it is right on George St with heavy traffic. The hostel is in desperate need of refurbishment. It is so dusty and the rooms and corridors stink. They don't vacuum the carpets properly and as an allergic person it's difficult to cope with that. Aircon doesn't work... More
