    We stayed here with 2 children under 5 in the family room. Apparently there is a quieter family room upstairs so request that one if you can. There is a great playground in Darling Harbour for the kids. Breakfast in the hostel was good. Staff...More

    Hi Jess - glad you had fun - there is nothing like pancakes in the morning to help kick start your day! See you again soon, we hope.

    Had a great night in Sydney, the hostel is next to Central station so a great location to explore Sydney. Kitchen and sitting areas are modern and fresh. Rooms are quiet and a friendly vibe about the place. Happy to stay with the family.
