This is the WORST hostel I have ever been in! I have been travelling before arriving to Sydney and this did not give me a very good impression. The whole place stinks--the staircase like pee, reception like cats and everywhere else like mildew. The kitchen is absolutely awful. My feet stuck to the floor with every step and even on a backpackers budget we chose to eat out because the kitchen was so atrocious I would rather spend money then cook and catch a disease. On the two occasions that we required help from the staff they were not helpful at all and extremely rude. The one staff member was incapable of answering a simple question politely without giving attitude. I can not wait to get out of this hell hole. The one thing that they remotely have on there side is that it is a close walk down to the harbour, other than that nothing. I would highly recommend staying far away from this place.
