Stayed here a few times over the last year or so in a Private double room. Good cupboard space to store luggage etc, air con works well. The bathrooms were pretty dirty everytime ive been. The only other downside is most of the room doors have vents fitted to them which means you can hear every bit of noise from... More

Extremely disapointed in this backpacker. It is now 3:22 am and it is finaly getting quiet. Folks at the door are very noisy, traffic too. We booked a room with a double bed and a singled bed. We paid 95 per night and they did not have any towels left. Bathrooms were quite dirty and hallways too. The building is... More

Amazing location, right by central and main shopping streets and woolworths. Owner is super lovely, cares a lot about the guests. Didn't feel that way about some of the other staff though, some seemed very disinterested. Beds super comfortable, a bit shaky but it's not a big deal. Doors don't slam as much as I've read! They're made to not... More

This hostel is in an excellent location, staff very helpful, beds very comfortable and the people generally in the hostel are very cool. However I was unlucky to have a thief in my room the second time I stayed. Also the rates go up on the weekend but I think this is standard across Sydney tbh

The Location is great. Only a few steps from Central Station via Eddy Ave. The Building is old. The elevator was very slow. I stayed in the 4 bed female room. The bed was very shaky. If I or the person bellow me made a little move, the whole bunk bed shakes. The wall seemed to be very thin. I... More

This hostel is very dirty, rundown and the staff are extremely unhelpful. The toilets are always blocked and cockroaches. Also the card they give you always breaks so your constantly running back and forward to reception every time you wanna get a room. Stay in wakeup around the corner because 790 is disgusting. Also the WIFI is $25 a week... More

There were no complaints about the room. $75.00 for the night. Excellent location beside Central Railway Station and five minute walk to Chinatown. link to the airport. Reception staff were... More

I am from Newcastle NSW and whenever I come to Sydney I stay at this hostel. I have stayed here about 8 times and now bring a group of friends with me for weekends out in Sydney. This is a great place to meet people. You can go down to the basement at any time and meet new people. On... More

First let me say that I realize this is a hostel and not a hotel. So the expectations should be lowered a bit. That being said, we cut our stay short for two reasons: 1. The ladies washroom was disgusting. 2. Guest would come in at all hours of the night yelling in the halls and it sounded like they... More
