My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting Sydney. It was Mardi Gras so extremely busy and limited accommodation. We paid $40 a night each for a dormitory the most I've paid for a hostel. The bathroom and kitchen were filthy, after doing a food shop we discovered how bad the kitchen was- unusable. All utensils thick... More

I checked in for about three days and the rooms were lovely. Well equipped with a TV a fridge and a dresser. It was kept well and the manager was a kind man. It was very private and close to alot of good sites and shops. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had a misfortunate situation which led me to this wonderful location. Never stayed at a hostel prior and believe me, I was weary. Ironically the stay lasted close to a month and never had an issue. The owner is/was always helpful and friendly. Willing to give a helping hand when required and give advice about pretty much anything. Rooms were... More

Type of place where you can chill out and take it easy. Not the type of place if you're looking for the wild backpackers experience! Manager is easy going. More like a bed and breakfast - without the breakfast. Probably the cleanest backpackers I have stayed at.

The owner (Dan?) is a creep and the place is so dirty and disgusting. He is so rude and the rooms are very dark and the sheets were dirty. The kitchen smells and there wasn't enough cutlery to make food. Don't stay here, it's the worst hostel I ever been to.
