A lot of the people here for months and that gives it a weird atmosphere. Not enough room for everyone sleeping there, so not enough room to sit inside or in the fridges. Very nice staff!


It was dirty and in the room was a lot of stuff ! There are many People they live for Linzer there. But Nice corner of Sydney with a lot of Bars and cafes


Wish we had lockers in the rooms other than that we had a nice stay.

The hostel is in located in a nice neighborhood with many restaurants and small stores. The bus stop is almost across the road and it only takes about 15 min to the cbd. The staff is nice and helpful. I paid $10 for WiFi which barely worked so I wouldn't recommend to get it. They have luggage storage which you have to pay for ($6-12) depends the size and time. The breakfast is ok (corn flakes, bread, jam) and I liked the outdoor area a lot because it's very green :)


Good atmosphere for anyone looking for a longer stay in Sydney; location away from city center so a quieter stay compared to some hostels in CBD.


Pros: the facility is well-run, in good condition and clean, given the volume of visitors. It was a pleasure to see a shower alcove free of mouldy grout – a rarity. Cons: Very sticky door edges (bathrooms & dorm) and rungs to the top bunks; outside tables grimy; foul odour from the bathroom floor waste. Improvements: 2 larger clothes hooks in bathroom to put gear on; 1-2 sturdy fold-away chairs for top bunkers to have somewhere to sit.

the 10 bed dorm was quite messy, due to lack of place to store baggabe. More than one chair would be great for the people who got the upper beds.


I was expecting a lot more from this place. the atmosphere was a little dead and it was all in all pretty unclean. Nothing like its sister location in Melbourne.
