Spent four nights there. It was not glamorous, but with the price, you can't expect glamour. The location was excellent, the bed good, there is noise with doors slamming shut and showers. Would probably stay there again if ever I return to Sydney.

Scrotey, adj.: Related to or having the characteristics of a scrotum. Warm, hairy, sticky, a bit moist. Smells mostly of balls. That said, I slept well enough and did not get bed bugs here. Embrace your inner (or outer, for that matter) scrote and you'll be fine.

Accommodation quality is fine and the price is very cheap. The staff there are not such warm but they answer my question with smile so that's OK. And it's easy to access to all Sydney side attractions which is make me love it.

Cheap hotel rates and great location. Moving around Sydney from the hostel is easy and fast. It is close to the Darling Harbour and lots of bars surrounds. A good place to have fun at the night. The security is fine, everyone got a access key after registration.

I find many people give negative reviews to this backpacker hostel, but I think it is not a bad choice - come on, they only charge you $20 one night with good location and free breakfast! You can’t compare it with other hostels that charge you $60 or $100 per night. I think this is not fair. And It is... More

The location is great - they are located in the central of Sydney City. Rooms are cozy and spotless, the free Wi-Fi was fast and efficient (nothing turns me on like a good internet connection speed). They also provide free breakfast. It maybe not the best hostel in Sydney, but worth the price.

The most unfriendly staff I've ever met in a hostel. Waiting all the times for toilet or shower. No space for eating. Ridiculously small kitchen, only one cooker (and only one of the hobs works). If you need to drink a glass of water, you need to go to the reception, leave your keys as deposit for the glass, and... More

I stayed two night in this hostel. It took me one hour to find it as it isn't on the street where it is supposed to be. I stayed in a dorm with 10 beds. The room was good. I didn't need more to sleep there.

Dirty and damp is what you are greeted to when you arrive at this hostel. The kitchen is tiny and is filthy, the communal area is filled with old and used furniture with rips and tears. The bathrooms are really dirty. Beds are relatively comfortable but the rooms themselves smell strongly of damp. There is no atmosphere in the hostel,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
