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

Stayed here for 5 nights in January and was really happy with my stay! Staff are really helpful and go out of their way to help in any way possible. Stayed in a 4bed all girls room, rooms are big with plenty of space for everyone's luggage. Big lockers that have a plug in so ideal to leave your phone... More

Having spent the last week here at 790 on George I will be sad to leave. The Hostel is very clean, the rooms are hoovered and the bin changed every day which doesnt happen in hostels very often! The location is great, 2 min walk from Central station. 10 min walk to darling harbour. The showers/toilets are very clean, however... More
