I really enjoyed my stay here, a very small hostel compared to others in the local area which allowed you to get to know people a bit more and had a real homely feel about it. The staff were really friendly and helpful and quite happy to give you advice and info on the local area. The common room was really nice, it had a couple of sofas, computer with internet access and printer, massive flatscreen tv and games console. Also because the common room was small it made you interact with others.

Although the location was near to central points there were many better locations in this area. The rooms and facilities had several shortcommings in terms of cleanliness. It seams the floor was never vacuumed and the wall of the bathrooms never mopped.

The girl in reception helped us to checked-in after business hours which was really good, because we arrived quite late. But the place in general was worse then I expected, because it was hard to find reception desk. The 4 bed dorm which we had was smelling so bad, that it was hard to sleep during the night. And room was really small, it was even hard to fit our luggage in it. The bathroom was dirty with hairs in the sink. We spent there only one night and were really happy about that.

Good location, short walk to city central but also close to Glebe and Newtown (great eats!). Only stayed one night but the dorm room was really large with 2 separate rooms that each had 1 bunk bed, desk, and locker. Staff was friendly and they had free tea and coffee, plus a scale if you need to weight your luggage!

Staff were fantastic - so friendly and helpful! Location is wonderful, just a few mins walk to Central station and there's a woolworths supermarket just around the corner. Kitchen was well-equipped, lounge cosy and warm, hostel was nice and quiet overnight. Bathrooms were clean and the bed was comfy. Lockers in room didn't allow you to put your own padlock on and WiFi was too slow to use but other than that, a nice place to stay.

The hostel was a good hostel to recover from the jat lag i had. On the other side because there are many long-term visitors so it is hard to meet new people. The kitchen is clean but the toilets are a bit broke. The staff were friendly and there is a warm atmosphere. If you're planning to work in Sydney it is a good place to stay, if you want to meet lots of people than i wouldn't advice to go there.

Great location, especially since it's so close to the train to and from the airport. Great kitchen facilities, huge with lots of appliances and a nice living area with tv.

This hostel was an absolute kip, a level above a slum. Worst I have ever stayed in.

Staff was really nice and friendly, location is great. Bathroom could've been better, lacked a towel to dry your hands. The shower was really hot on the 2nd floor, really hard to set the right temperature. Kitchen was alright, nice 'living room', the rooms were a bit small and I accidentally opened someone else's room with my key (as I thought I was on the right floor, turned out not to be), so that was a little weird and insecure.

The hostel has a good location very close to the central station and george street. It is possible to walk everywhere, but it will take you 30-40 minutes to walk all the way down to the harbor. The WiFi was ok, nice common room and ok kitchen facilities. Bathrooms/showers did not look clean.

The staff is friendly. The room is quite dark and it gives people an impression of not clean. And there is no elevator so if your luggage is heavy, you have to be careful. But in general, I have enjoyed my stay here. =)

Many long term residents. Everyone friendly, including staff. Clear instructions. Security rate down because there were lockers in the rooms but no keys for them so no secure lockup. Could do with a second hanger or shelf in the showers.
