Not a fan; no AC, messy rooms, the wifi never worked, had to go to the Macca's if I needed to message anyone. Staff were rude and not helpful.

It was a nice place to stay in Sydney, very secure and 24/7 reception which we really liked. We got a room to ourselves but it always smelt really damp every time we got back to our room. Other than that I would recommend it to others. More for people who like to party and meet a lot of young people.

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write your review. With regards to the room, did you report this to reception? We take things like this very seriously and would have switched you rooms or fixed the problem asap. Hopefully we see you again. JSB

Room was good. There's a locker provided for each bed. The wifi isn't great, but when you could connected it just about managed emails and skype at a push. It's close to the Kings cross area for a good night out. Rooms have fans, but no AC.

Great place to stay especially for young backpackers. The staff will walk you to a bar every night and help you find things to do during the day. Only a few minutes walk from the kings cross train station which will get you anywhere you need to go in the city. Only problem we had was that we stayed in two different rooms and the second room would not connect to the free wifi at all.
