Latest Review

" Big Hostel is in a great location right near Central station in Sydney. They allowed check in at any time, which made our trip much more flexible with some people in our party flying in late. The water was hot and toast was supplied for breakfast. The staff was friendly. The security was great with locks on every room and lockers available inside too. The mixed dorm we stayed in was clean and comfortable, although it didn't smell the greatest. Was probably the tenants. Overall a great stay. "
