Hey. I lived in the Goldsbrough mort for 5 months while I was in Sydney and we all thought it was great! There were 5 of us, all early 20's and it suited us perfectly, good sized pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gym (didnt even go in it) and theres's an internet place, a GREAT coffee shop and a newsagents all situated within the building. city is ten mins walk, the beauiful darling harbour is a minute walk away, the shopping centre is joined onto the building by a walkway tunnel type thing so you dont even have to go outside! loads of shops resaurants and most importantly, loads of bars close by. The Pyrmont Bridge Hotel is a 24 hour bar!!
all in all, I loved the goldsbrough. we didnt want to slum it in hostels and for young travellers, its a perfect place (and you feel a bit posh cos its a posh looking building)!!
and yes, the corridors do look like a jail, see attatched pic
