Convenient short walk to Central station, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. The lift wasn't working during my stay. Bathrooms are good, showers never ran out of hot water and cleaned everyday. But only 1 for each sex on each floor - wasn't too much hassle. Bunks are standard, linen is clean, towels provided free. Rooms are spacious with ceiling fan, but with lax enforcement, tidiness is dependent on the people staying there. Free wifi, but couldn't connect with my phone. Found most staff helpful. If u like meeting people and don't mind 8-10 bed dorms, then EGB is a very good choice.

Room Tip: rooms with windows on George St are a bit noisier with the traffic. ask for 1st floor if have heavy...

Easy Go Backpackers (EGB) has everything you need: an excellent location at a fair price. Clean, good bathrooms (in every floor), neat kitchen, tv room, internet. Really, it is the best. I stayed at this hostel after a really bad experience at a different hostel. Although I had to pay $5 more for night, it was so worth it. It's located on George Street, one of the main streets of Sydney's CBD. So transportation at door, although for many things you can just walk from there, it's safe and staff is friendly. Great experience at the EGB! I would recommend it!

Nice place to stay also the staff r friendly.not include the old elevator it's not too good to be used so I rather use the stair.my room is clean and tidy a bit messy from other room mates but it's fine.small kitchen always busy to avoid peak time would be better.some couches r too old and unuseful better be changed.

The best hostel in Sydney, just in the heart of the city, it's next to the train station, Opera house, or Coles and Woolworth. Georges the owner is such a nice person, very friendly and helpful. Actually the staff is really nice, always willing to help. They provide free linen, towel, foxtel, tea, coffee, and unlimited internet etc...

You can have a late checkout upon request, which is good when you have your flight in the evening or late. This place makes you feel like home ! Don't spend your money in other places, when you can have cheap and great place to live. The room are clean, kitchen and bathroom aswel.

EGB is the best !

Look no further.....this hostel is BRILLIANT!!! Great value for money, free wifi, free fresh towels and linen if required, friendly staff, lovely manager called George who gives you a nice little tour of the hostel and helpful advice if requested, the rooms are big and spacious despite housing 8 people and not to mention its nice and clean unlike so many other hostels we've stayed at!! We'll certainly be returning when we're back in Sydney!!!!
