Do not stay at this hostel unless you want a cramped, dirty, uncomfortable place to stay! Great location (immediately across the street from Waverly Train Station) but uncomfortable to live in--sinks are the size of small cereal bowls, unisex bathrooms, and showers with buttons you have to repeatedly push if you want continuos water. Bar downstairs is fine for meeting people, but food service is horribly slow. No hand soap in the bathrooms, and knowing that no one washes their hands makes entire hostel seem dirty.
The only plus besides the location is the staff, who are extremely friendly and helpful. Also there is a luggage room in which visitors can store their things before and after checkout, which helps.
Sheets were clean, but overall it was a bad hostel experience. "Breakfast" consists of boring cereal and pieces of toast that you have to make yourself, so don't expect a continental breakfast like I did. Internet is available but quite expensive. Do yourself a favor and investigate other hostels before settling on this one. If this is the 6th rated hostel in the world, I'd hate to see #1.

Dorms are too small to appropriately accomodate six people. Bring your own towels. Did not like the set up of toilets, there should be a partition between the commode and the shower not all in one. Somewhat noisy. A bit overpriced for what you get. Probably would not stay here again.

The hostel was ok, but reservations I had made were not held, and the type of room promised to me was not available.
