Very pleasant stay here. The hostel is kept clean and there is a nice communal atmosphere here particularly in cafe. It is well equipped in terms of cooking equipment and fridge space. Roisine, the manager is very friendly and helpful.

It would seem that people working in the city actually live in this hostel, as a result treat it like they're own home and have very little regard for other peoples space, the floor was covered in peoples belongings, it actually made it hard to reach my bunk. All the plugs where being used with extension cables and people charging. We also needed proof we'd stayed for our rego and they could only give us stuff with their head office address which always no good to us. As it wasn't even in NSW

Sydney's lockout laws have killed the nightlife. Once upon a time the hostel was in a prime location near Kings Cross and the Harbour but unfortunately there isn't much to do anywhere near the hostel, and with the bar closing at 10:30 your best bet is to head across the city to Newtown where staying at hostel there would've been better. Most of the staff are brilliant and nice but one older woman at reception was rude and ignorant. If checkout is at 10am, don't go on a smoko, a smile would help.
