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

Stayed for 6 nights in March 14 and found it so easy to find my way around Sydney while staying in this location. The hostel is just a few minutes away from Central station and less then 15 minutes away from the airport via train. I liked the fact that their locker is big and has individual power points within... More

A large hostel with reasonably clean rooms. There is a large kitchen area and communal areas are spacious. What you'd expect from a big and busy city centre hostel. Good value for money for its location.

I find the location really good. Got a private room and it was nice, but a little bit old. Bathroom was ok... nothing special. If you are looking for a good location for a nice price. I recommend. Front desk crew is very attentive.

We stayed in a private double room. The room was small and cramped and stunk. The bed was damp. When you got into bed there was a strong mildew smell. It stayed the whole time. Sydney does not seem like A humid place but our bed told a different story. The hostel has very little public space, therefore people are... More

The location of this hostel is great! Right on George street and easy walk to Chinatown, Darling Harbour and Central station. The rooms were clean and well looked after and the bathrooms were good with space in the showers for clothes etc which I personally really value. However, there were only 2 showers per floor for men and 2 for... More

The double private room was nice but small and could have had a table or some sort of place to store your personal items. The staff was friendly. They had some trouble with the wifi which was unfortunate and the breakfast place was almost never open. The location was good, with all the Asian restaurants and malls near, and the... More

Got myself a room with bunk bed. Better than my expectation of a hostel. Has all the amenities and facilities needed. Really helpful staff and friendly customers. If you got nothing to do, walk around the hostel at night/early morning time and watch some interesting people. Its close to YHA where many tours start so it is easy if you... More

Room was nice and big for a 6 bed dorm. Air conditioning was a treat after the stuffyness of my previous hostel. However someones bed is right underneath the unit so only usable when the bed is empty really. Big lockers for all beds with plug sockets inside. Also a lift so no need to carry your luggage up loads... More
