The window wouldn't open. So the air in the room sometimes became stuffy.

Pretty much what you pay for. A good price, right near the station and shopping centers, and some friendly staff. Really good pressure in the showers, dorms are fine but the people can be pretty messy. Comfy beds and a huge locker storage. Really big kitchen and eating area too. Obviously not the most modern lookin place by everything seemed fine to me.

we arrived at 7am with the Greyhound Bus and had to wait until 12pm to check in. When we checked in they told us we have to wait for another 2 hours bc our room's in the 7th floor. The room was more than dirty and the whole kitchen smelled horrible. We were glad to leave after one night.

Good location near Central Station. The kitchen area is large but the facilities (hobs, knives and forks, fridge and storage space) are not quite big enough to cope with a full hostel over New Year. Plenty of seating and space for socialising however. TV lounge area is excellent and provides a good alternative chill out space for a quiet night. Rooms have lockers with plugs in and are large enough. Staff were great. Not the best place around but certainly not the worst by any means.

Really anoying system of cards to enter in every room. Cards often get demagnetised and you have to take 10 minutes to go back to reception because the elevator, other really anoying thing. Just one really slow elevator.

Bathrooms and dorm rooms clean. Kitchen and common room nice big spaces. Wifi doesn't quite reach rooms at the end sometimes but works most of the time. Had a great time over Xmas and new year

Big hostel, many people, good kitchen area. Missed a common room where everyone can hang out but in general you'll meet people everywhere especially cause it's in on of Sydney's main streets. Would recommend to go there

1st impression, it's old and run down. Not much of a common area, the basement is the kitchen with 2 couches and a TV, but if everyone is cooking you can't talk or watch anything. Great having chargers in the lockers. Key cards for all doors, including washrooms.

Después de haber estado en más de 30 hostales, debo decir que los hoteles en Australia dejan mucho que desear. Son caros, no muy limpios y además hay que pagar por el wifi!. El problema no es sólo de este hostel, sino que generalizado (antes estuve en el Bounce). Respecto del 790, la habitación "twin" es sucia y huele mal. Wifi 24hrs por 6 AUD. Uno de los peores hostales en que me he hospedado (aunque por lo que creo es "promedio" para AUS).

Nice staff, convenient, good location

A reasonable stay, however quite pricey due to Sydney realestate market. Atmosphere was a bit drab compared to other hostels I have stayed in. Air conditioned rooms was a plus. Pretty decent facilities (bathroom, kitchen, laundry).

Great location, friendly staff, well priced. I stayed in a private double for a week, and it wasn't hoovered once, nor was the trash bag changed. The kitchen was acceptable, could have been cleaner and staff need to keep on top of food which is left behind from travellers! Overall quite impressed, and similar facilities to Base Hostel which is double the price

We visited Friday to Sunday night. Hostel ok, but very noisy in the corridors on Friday and Saturday until 4am. Good as a party hostel, otherwise go somewhere else!

Bathroom was filthy and the urinal was blocked and over flowing the entire stay. The lift is also very unreliable

790 on George was just an okay hostel. It was an amazing central location, but it has a reputation as a party hostel, which I wasn't aware of before booking. It's cheaper for a reason, the hallways smell like cigarettes and the bathrooms and dorms are decently clean, not the best.
