    Terrible! Glad I found this place on TripAdvisor so I can review this. I last minute booked this place when I was in Sydney because I was thinking Hostel/Hotels in Sydney are just everywhere and 24/7 available. I was wrong. When I arrived, the Staff...More

    Hostel was very dirty, staff were rude and unhelpful. There is luggage storage if you get there before checkin but it is in an open room without a door, did not feel comfortable leaving my stuff there. Reception closes early and opens late. Bad location,...More

    Central Business District
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
    energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
    buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
    shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
    frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
    dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
    the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
