This is a great hostel. Every room has a balcony and bathroom and there is a nice family atmosphere. It's very clean but there is no elevator. Great facilities and I really enjoyed my time here. Ricky on reception is great!

My girlfriend booked a double room online at hostelbookers.com, we were very pleased with our location which is only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Sydney. The room was very large and clean and had a nice balcony over looking the busy Darlinghurst Road below. The bed was comfortable and the room had a clean ensuite batroom attached.... More
