We're here to make your stay in Sydney as enjoyable as possible. We start that by having the best location in Sydney with everything at your doorstep! The hostel is situated on the main street of Sydney (George Street) and is only a three minute walk from central station. We have a bus stop across the road where you can get a free bus to take you down to circular quay and around the city all day we are also only a stone throw away from Hustle and bustle of china town which has everything from retail shops and restaurants to bars and night clubs!

Sydney is a big city and can be overwhelming at the best of times and that’s why we have a dedicated team of receptionist that are here to help you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to find somewhere to go or just need someone to talk to, maybe you just need a hug? Whatever your needs, we have you covered 

We make sure at all times that all our facilities are well maintained and have very strict cleaning schedules that we make sure our staff to abide by. Our prices are competitive to hostels around us and we are always doing what we can to make your experience with us unique but most of all fun! Here are a few examples of how we are making that possible.
- We’ve changed our checkout time to 11 am. We know what those hangover mornings are like, especially after a few cups of that classy goon and although check in time is guaranteed from 2pm we always try our best to check you in as soon as you arrive regardless of what time it is!
- We Have Lockers in every dorm available for use and these are big enough for your rucksack! We also have universal plugs in every one of them to save you having to buy an extremely overpriced one at a convenience store.
- We have two common rooms; level 2 common room is our ‘tea and coffee room.’ Enjoy free tea and coffee every day whilst chilling out in front of the TV or socialising with your soon to be friends. We have another common room on level 7 which is soon to be revealed but we can’t tell you all the details about that just yet, It will ruin the surprise ;)
- In the basement we have our kitchen which also has another TV just to make sure you’re never bored. Down here is where the parties happen! Every week we make sure there are plenty of things for you to see and do. We have a weekly entertainment program that includes not only free drinking games but guided tours of the city as well as cheese and wine nights! If there is an event in the city we work these schedules around our events to make sure you get to see everything!

As mentioned above our reception team works 24/7. this is all to benefit our guests. We make sure the building is secure at all times. We have key card access to all parts of the building and have cctv running 24/7 just to make sure you feel as safe as possible and to assist you with any needs you may have throughout the night.

    Just stayed for a night. 790 has really good showers. Perfect location, so close to everything. Beds were good. Some people were drinking at night and got drunk and made a prank, but it was ok. Not a place perfer Asians.
