Stayed here with a group of friends awhile back. I stayed in a separate room to the group as I was always the first up for work and needed sleep. The guys were in a room out by the car park and I was next to the kitchen. With a big room comes a bit of mess. Even more so... More

Stayed here twice. Both times not comfortable. No fresh air. Sealed windows. Air con units you cant control & remotes with no batteries. Fridge not cold enough. Shower with broken handle. Squeaky beds. Other time no blankets available & was freezing. On the plus side, room was quiet enough. And have a very chilled/liberal attitude. If staying here would get... More

I would stay here again. Not fancy, but neither is the price. The single private rooms with ensuite were quite adequate and great for a budget traveller. Note that you have to buy a $5 zipped mesh bag if you want to use the communal fridges, but once you have the bag the system is very practical and the bag... More

The worst thing, it was pretty dirty and the linens were awful. I slept with my jacket and long trainings on to prevent my skin on touching the linens. Exaggerated much? I'm not a clean freak but this was a big no for me. I even moved to another place on my 3rd day in syd. Well you get what... More

We stayed here as a cheap alternative for a family gathering. It was cheap, but so was the quality. Don't stay here expecting anything fancy, it's not. We got a 6 bunk room so the 5 of us could fit in. It was very tight and some of the beds were awful. One had lots of slats missing and the... More

Location is fantastic, being a short walk to Central Station, and the room was clean and the bedding soft. Noise was minimal after 10:30pm, as the common areas were not allowed to be used after this time. Only downside was the bathroom smelled a little off, and there was no soap in the bathroom, not even hand soap at the... More

This hostel is fairly cheap for Sydney prices, which is awesome! It's very close to central station, 10 minute walk! And you can walk around a fair chunk of the city fairly easily from this location! This hostel is full of longterm travellers who were working so it's not the best for meeting a load of people as everyone works!... More

I stayed here when I first got to Sydney and the hostel was ok. We decided to book into the hostel again as its cheap and a good location. How ever 6 months later and the hostel is filthy and starting to become run down. We stayed in room 8 and the mould in the bathroom shower curtain and walls... More

We stay in this backpacker hotel from 2 Apr 2016 to 8 Apr 2016, in a private room for 2. As this is a backpacker hotel, we did not expect much, but it turn out to be better then what we had expected. The price is good, location is 5-8mins walk to central station. Nearest Woolworth is 15mins away. Room... More

Good location coming from the airport, close to central station. Rooms are not bad. But toilets facilities are insufficient and not very clean. If you are in the top floor...you nees to go 2floors down for the nearest wc. Also...wifi dowa not seem to work there. Free breakfast is a plus!
