It's right near Central Station which is nice. The room was okay, and had a rather big closet with plugs in it. The elevator was slow and stopped at every floor even though nobody entered/exited. The kitchen is not very big and I often missed cutleries. The kitchen also needs more tea towels. One of the doors to the toilet broke on my second day, leaving us with only one toilet! There's no safe way to store your luggage after check out - you just have to trust everyone else.


The hostel was fantastic, with only one major issue; the keycards kept disabling themselves and we had to get them reactivated at the desk multiple times. The staff were very good about reactivating them, however.

Really good value for money. Was a bit noisy but not awful. Brilliant location, would stay there again.


Good stay overall. I bought the WiFi on one day and would not work but the man on reception was very unhelpful and insisted that it was fine when it clearly wasn't. Also not great being on the top floor as the lift takes forever!


All staff members were exceptionally helpful and nice!! Perfect location! Great breakfast deal from Colombian cafe around the corner from 790 George:) I wish they had free wifi!!!

location is prefect,i was staying in a 6 bed dorm, enough space for everyone, the only thing is no free wifi


A very nice hostel with very friendly staff and a perfect location to explore the city!


Good location, got the feeling that there were a few long term stayers there though. Which makes it harder to meet people. The fire alarm went off at 2am and it was surprising that no staff came to the floor we were on (6th) and alert us to evacuate. Many people stayed in their rooms which would've been catastrophic if it had been a real fire.


One of the best hostels I have been in in sydney. Local is perfect, very colse to central station. Rooms big and clean. Bathrooms big and clean. Staff great and common areas really good. 3rd time I have stayed here. Will stay again.
