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

Great hostel right in the centre of the CBD. A stone throw away from central station,right on the Main Street leading all the way to the opera house. 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

The stay is pretty good. The price is affordable, and has all the facilities needed. The staff members there are very helpful when i called them to extend my booked stay for another night. There are however some shortfalls about the facilities...mainly, the air conditioning. The temperature inside was just too warm, to an extent that it feels a bit... More

My friend and i decided that we had to budget where we would stay and so she found 790 on george. Walking into our room our first reaction was 'omg... ew'. Dark carpets, smelly corridors and wasn't what we expected at all. We decided we would stay the one week and then move on.. We met our roommates which changed... More

Hi Aimiex, Thanks for taking the time to leave some feedback about our hostel. I'm going to look into your account to find out what room you stayed in and investigate why the corridors smelt bad. This is obviously unacceptable. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Unfortunately I can' t do much about the colour of the carpets! Being... More

A friend and I stopped in Sydney on our way to Melbourne. The location is great but the accommodation is far from acceptable. We expected a basic place and we were only looking for a bed and a roof over our heads. In saying that, cleanliness of the place is not something negotiable. The room stunk really bad and I... More

The first thing that struck me about 790 on George is that while the staff at the counter were friendly and helpful enough, the general cleanliness left a lot to be desired and it only got worse when I got to my room. Opening the door solicited a dank, musty smell that I can only hope was "just" water though... More
