Booked for a weekend, staying for a month - Í love it!
Newtown is a great area of Sydney to stay in, this hostel was hands down the best I stayed in in Sydney and the wider area around it. Cosy and clean!
I didn't actually stay in the end as, after asking about the charge for the internet (I didn't at the time realise that charging for wifi was standard in Australia) and whether I could cancel my second night's accommodation, the lady at reception said she wasn't sure whether she wanted me to check in even for the first night ''due to my attitude.'' As a result, I found alternative accommodation (not ideal, as it was nearly 10pm at night).
We stayed in the seperate house, which was kind of cool itself but seperate to anything fun going on in the backpackers area next door. Our room was fine, with a little heater that was awesome in the cold. Good location in the middle of newtown for shops and food!
