i stayed here in Sydney for 3 nights after reading a few other reviews on the internet. It was OK, it was cheap enough - had my own room for about 25 quid, Tv and fridge in the room was great. the room didnt have a window which might put some people off but I knew that before i booked it (dorms have windows). The bathrooms were cleaned daily and usually very clean. didnt use the kitchen or the common room but had a look in and they looked fine. they said they had a roof teraace so I went up and it was a disgrace, completely cluttered with rubbish they need to sort that out. I didnt like that I had to keep on asking the desk staff to turn on the air con and they weren't the friendliest people I've met. however the location of this hostel is what makes it worthwhile, your about a 15 min walk from the opera house.harbour bridge etc. I'd stay here again no probs.
