The lock on the shared locker needs to be fitted correctly or it is only a "decoration" Otherwise, I would recommend staying here and if ever in Sydney again, I will!!! The place is old, it's not flash, but is more than value for money. Another tip for anyone travelling to Sydney, Taxi's can easily be cheaper than buses and so much more convenient. $15 for the shuttle bus (3x 15 = $45) and the shuttle bus ride was scary. Taxi was $26. Buses to and from Horden Pavillion for 3 $28, Taxi $26

Stayed for one night in 2 bed female dorm. Mostly long termers here


Lives this hostel. It's not a party hostel but still with a good atmosphere.


Great place to stay. Lovely staff, very clean and homey. Would recommend to everyone who doesn't want a party hostel


Awesome staff, excellent location and nice rooms. Some areas could use some renovation, but otherwise great place to stay. Highly recommended.


First of all I am not writing a lot of comnents so that I write ine speaks for itself. Honestly it is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed. Even the dorms give you a private atmosphere. The staff is amazing!! Thry are very helpful. I go there regularly to socialize or if I need a scanner. It is not a party hostel but if you want to have a longterm place or a homelike atmosphere - that is where you have to go.

Small Hostel, very cosy place, many long-termers, no age restriciton for tentans, therefore you occasionaly will see some old people staying in this hostel. Great atmosphere though, I definitely enjoyed my stay and met interesting people. It is not a party hostel, most of the tenants work, but still people hang out on the rooftop every evening and you can have a great time here if you want to. Would definitely recommend this place and stay here again everytime I come to Sydney.


Amazing staff, well organized set up ( kitchen, lounge etc). I will definately be with you again when I'm next in Sydney. I'll also be telling my friends about it. Thanks for making my stay so enjoyable. 😀

Small friendly hostel with a homely feel. Lots of bright canvases on the walls but some of the rooms smelled a bit musty and most rooms could do with a fresh coat of paint. Location is convenient for theatrical station and the CBD.


The staff really friendly and helpful, really nice atmosphere, really well located Downsides: no proper heating in the rooms, they were pretty cold, the hot water in the showers was finishing after two minutes, meaning that half of all the showers I took was cold.


Fantastic place. Clean, friendly, and obviously run by people who care about what they do.
