    I think it was the worst place I ever seen in my life. Very smelly and dirty toilets and bathrooms that no one cared for cleaning, my room didn't have any window and we were 14 people with 40 degrees. There isn't a staff, it's everything managed by some boy and girl that are guest of the hostel and so they don't care to do their job. Wi fi didn't work. The Rozelle suburb is not bad but consider you are far from thecity and you'll have to spend money for the bus everytime to go to the cbd.
