It wasn't a great stay. There is only 2 showers for the all hostel. The wifi was good and the room was correct with A/C and heater!!

Good location, good facilities and good for transport links. Walking distance to Sydney CBD. It is missing a "smokers corner" though, which most backpackers do have.

The main problems here are the beds aren't great and there are limited lockers available and they are located in an outside common area. Otherwise it's OK.

I liked the location but the hostel was old and very cold to stay in. The toilets were clean but the kitchen is outside and there is only places to sit outside when you want to eat. There is not a common area and in general this hostel needs an update.

Really happy with my stay at Alfred Park. The staff are very friendly and helpful, there's a good atmosphere at the hostel and a decent sized kitchen and social area to eat your food. Unlike other hostels I've stayed at you get your bed linen included - a duvet, not just a sheet! And they even provide washing powder to do your laundry so you don't have to worry about going out and spending $10 on detergent your only use once or twice. Great location too, with lots of restaurants close by

Free towels to use, the bed is already made up for you, the showers have good room with a bench in a little alcove. It's everything you need!

Great location just a 10min walk to the city. The staff were very friendly and willing to help. The only negative is a big one I had rats run over my feet at night, ahhh. The place is crawling as the kitchen is outdoors and they store the rubbish bags in a corridor next to the kitchen which attracts big nasty rats, god knows what they do on the kitchen surfaces at night...

Hi Robert, We are very sorry to hear about your encounter! The rubbish is concealed away from the kitchen, the bags you would have seen would be full of sheets we send back to the sheet company. Apologies again about what happened we had been struggling with the issue of pests but this has since been resolved! Happy travels :) Michelle @ Alfred Park

Good location close to central station with helpful staff. Kitchen a bit small for the number of guests and no tablespoons (only teaspoons?!) Random? Yes - but try eating soup/cereal with a teaspoon. No real area for socialising like a lounge area, only the outdoor courtyard. Seems to be filled with people working so the general atmosphere is quite isolating - if you're not working, don't stay because you'll feel secluded. Recommend for long-term only. Otherwise a good hostel!

Excellent hostel, close to city centre, university, central station... Unfortunately only limited (and no free) wifi, but that seems to be normal in Sydney. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hostel clean and quiet.

Staff was very friendly. When the wifi was down, they let me use their internetcable instead. Bathrooms and kitchen was mostly clean; when not clean, you couldn't blame the staff buy only the residents.. Wifi usually pretty fast. The location was great with a nice park on the other side of the road and only 5 mins walk to central station. 10 mins to Woolworth supermarket. Only complaint is the broken aircon which meant a boiling hot room on 2nd floor. Would definitely recommend!

Great Hostel on the outskirts of Sydney CBD, situated next to Central Station and Alfred Park. Theres no free Wifi, no computers to use, no free breakfast and no chill out room. You can get all these included in the price in all other hostels in Australia...bit of a let down considering the price! Although this is pretty much a working hostel, it's pretty quiet and if its night life and parties your looking for, you ned to stay in Kings Cross. My room stated 4 beds, its actually got 5 beds. :(

It was ridiculous that I could not get a locker. Any hostel should have one locker per person, end of story.

Owner Comment (Hide)
It is unfortunate that you were not able to find a locker during your stay, we value security highly in our hostel and is why we have over 30 cameras recording common areas and corridors 24/7 for your safety. We supply a limited amount of lockers outside of the rooms as there is not enough room to have 150 lockers (1 per person) on site, it is physically impossible to do. This is why we offer anyone who needs to store away valuables in our office safe/store room free of charge

Only complaint was that we had a room with no aircondition and the fan was broken. Otherwise we likes our stay very much, it is good value compared to how little you actually pay
