After staying in numerous hostels since being in Sydney, this hostel is by far the nicest we have stayed in. Location is great as it is a minutes walk away from Central station and right in the CBD. The bathrooms are lovely and clean and the rooms are spacious with big lockers. I would highly recommend this hostel after staying... More

We stayed here due to price as it is one of the cheaper hostels around the central station area meaning good access to transport and so easy to get to the airport and the city. Yes the location is good but you do get what you pay for, small dorms (compared to other ones in the area) and quite a... More

I stayed at 790 with a friend for 2 weeks whilst visiting her in Sydney, had a decent enough stay, large lockers (bring your own padlock), room secure and appears clean enough. Didn't really use communal facilities so can't comment on them. The bathrooms were always really clean and despite there only being 2 toilets and 2 showers per floor... More

I absolutely loved staying there. The staff is super friendly, arranging, welcoming. It's a great deal and the best way to meet people. The hostel is close to central station, as well as Paddy's market. The kitchen is very spacious and organized. There is a common area on the second floor with tv and dvds plus several couches, couches also... More

Bedrooms were very clean,kitchen area was big and comfortable. The staff were very helpful,especially Lisa from Ireland. She helped me check out and answered a few questions throughout my stay. Give that... More

I stayed a few weeks in a 4 bed female dorm. The hostel is close to lots of eateries and Central station. The dorm itself was clean and quiet with each bed having its own reading light and locker. Bring own padlock. The shower cubicles could be cleaner, the toilets were clean. It has a good size kitchen, many fridges,... More

The staff were very accommodating ( took his time to help us with the heater ) the pick up location of Blue Mountains oz Trails Day Tour was also right beside 790 ( along Rawson ). Aside from the location that is super great - across the central station which is a huge advantage for first timers like us, the... More

It horrible here. Okay, the price and location are good. But that's it. The kitchen is terrible; dirty, no cups, no normal pans, the food shelves full with fruit flies, people leave the gas on while they're done cooking. The rooms are small and the airco/heating system is a total mess. One hour you're sweating as crazy and the next... More

Hi there, I'm really sorry to see that you didn't enjoy your stay at our hostel. The kitchen is cleaned 3 times a day and we go through all the shelves and fridges to remove any food that people may have left behind daily. I will personally go check the shelves for fruit flies today but I can't imagine there... More
