A last minute trip to Sydney necessitated a stay in a Hostel so not to pay exorbitant room rates. Had a 3 person room - a double bed with a single bunk above. I was pleasantly surprised by the state of the room. They supplied blankets, towels and shampoo, conditioner and body wash. While I'd never stay in a Hostel... More

We had a reunion with friends from the states so we needed somewhere cheap, central and with a few people to fit in one room. This ticked all the boxes. We had no problems. Having no lift wasn't fun with a room up on the top floor but my legs got a good workout. Bathrooms were relatively clean, and the... More

This hostel is very close from Central Station. Then a nice walk via Pitt St leads you to the Opera House. Also, if want great food, Chinatown is close. Location is definitely the best part of the place. Price affordable.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and spacious room with heater. However, no stove in the kitchen and hot water was not steady when bathing. All in all, excellent experience! Ll definitely come again.

This hostel is just a little walk from the train/bus station. Not that far from the operahouse or other known places you want to see. The people there is really helpful, they even help you up to your room with your baggage. The room I was in was a bit small, but it was alright. You get free wifi, and... More

I stayed at the 4 bed dorm for 4 nights. The staff is very nice and the location is almost perfect. Considering the price, the bed was also fine. Cleanliness was just ok in general. However, the common area is very small and wi-fi does not work in most of the rooms. Kitchen is also very very small, just enough... More

We stayed here in March, to attend the Royal Easter Show. We were 3 adults & 1 child. We were told that the Family Room was on first floor. No......there was 9 flights of stairs, to our room, on the top floor. Its pretty old, room was clean. However the shared facilities were disgusting. Shower Curtain was mouldy around the... More

I was so impressed with this hostel. For the price it was very clean, with incredibly helpful staff, TV and fridge in our room, comfy beds, working, warm and spacious showers. It even has free toast and spreads available for when you come home ravenous post wine. The staff were so accommodating and helped with our every need. Thank you... More

Stayed for a night on the way to New Zealand in Feb 2016. Tried calling about 5 times the day before to ask about what to do when arriving at 7am to leave our luggage, left multiple messages with no response- finally on the 6th call got through and found out what to do. Wouldn't be great if you needed... More

Stayed in a double room for a week. Was everything we could have wanted and more. The location is the best you could want in Sydney. 5 minutes from the Central Station and right in the city. The staff were so helpful, giving directions for transport and giving us advice for where to go at night. Facilities are great, a... More
