I saw an ad for this hostel before arriving back in Sydney and they made it look great. The only truth in the ad is that its a great location. There is no free breakfast (unless you count leftover bread) And there is no free wi-fi (they charge a fortune to use the wi-fi there) The kitchen is so filthy, I've seen pigeons fly in there before and peck away on the counter! In the end I never bothered using it, guess I was worried what else was living under all the rot. And the cleaners are useless too. The come in, empty the bin and thats about it. And some of the locks dont work on the rooms which of course is bad if your travelling alone. Would'nt recommend it!
