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

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.

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.
