Got upgraded from a 10 to a 4 bed room which was pretty sweet. Good place to sleep while exploring Sydney but nothing more than that. Wouldn't wanna stay there long term. Their luggage storage is a rack right next to the open door. Didn't leave my bag there and paid $13 for a proper bag storage instead.

The room smelt weird and it was very messy. The place felt very dingy and you could hear everything whenever people are walking around in/outside the room. The room itself was pretty cramped and got pretty cold at night (mind that it was winter). Corridor lights were flickering. There was a lot of graffiti everywhere and the whole place did not seem very well maintained. Additionally, the receptionist on duty when I checked in was intimidating. But I guess that's what you get for a cheap price.

it is difficult to adjust to a 23 degree "Sydney winter day" I agree with you, specially when you come from 32 deg of the tropics! As for your graffiti and intimidation, wall murals are not graffiti and feelings of intimidation when you deal with ordinary people require immediate psychological assessment.

While the bed was really comfortable it was right against a window with no curtains and surrounded by mold. The street lighting made it impossible to sleep. The room was smelly and the floor was filthy. The other travellers had their stuff everywhere and some had taken up multiple safes, leaving others with no lockers, and staff made no attempt to improve this. Facilities were low, the kitchen was dirty, as was the showers. Toast for breakfast, good location, just a little dirty.

This is a great hostel with a great atmosphere. The hostel is big, so people don't always feel responsible for communal areas. This is, however, well managed by providing cutlery boxes for a deposit and a daily extensive cleaning of common areas. The beds were very comfortable and not squeaky. Some rooms to not have curtains. The hostel contains a nice mix of long term and short term residents. All with all a great value for money.
