Great hostel! A nice rooftop with a great atmosphere at night! Everybody was so nice and the staff is the best! They help you whenever they can! Especially Laura, who does an amazing job!! You have a tv room and a nice kitchen (maybe a little small, but is not really important), the wifi is a big plus! Def staying here again next time I come to Sydney!!!


Rooms here are probably the best I stayed in so far in Australia. Would certainly stay again if I'm back in Sydney!


One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Amazingly friendly/helpful staff, super comfy beds, and perfect location close to everything you could want! Only slight negative is the kitchen is way too small. Will definitely be recommending to everyone I know heading to Sydney!


Really loved this hostel! Great walking distance to the city, helpful staff, and free wifi and breakfast! I didn't make use of the rooftop terrace or TV room but they both looked like good hang out spots! Not the best showers, but they were fine for a few days use.


The showers were never clean when I went in. The kitchen was tiny and I could never sit down. The wifi was good though


Ok for short term stay. Very small hostel for the amount of people there. The kitchen was tiny and half thr equipment was broken. Very noisy at night lots of party's and drinking! Quite a few long term residents too so tends to be quite cliquey. quite a way out of the city centre. It's worth the price you pay, but I wouldn't pay anymore!


A nice, fairly small hostel. Lots of people staying long-term and everyone is super friendly. There are organized activities (barbecue, clubs, picknic...) almost every day, which is also cool.


Great location. Unfortunately they had a bit of problem with flooding due to the storms while I was there but the staff did their best. Friendly hostel with a mix of long termers and travellers.


quite new hostel, so clean in overall kitchen too small on very busy street so very loud all day long and night and windows do not isolate good. bathroom floor always wet which is disgusting and very slippery party hostel, there is always something on!


I want to live here! The hostel is really clean and comfortable, the staff are amazing- friendly, helpful, fun- and there's always something to do. The communal areas are as well-kept as the rooms and the hostel has a really friendly vibe. Cannot fault it and I hope I stay here again!


One of the best hostels I've been to. Good wifi, confi beds, lockers in the room, awesome roof deck, great staff and service. Also everything is pretty new and they renovated recently. Really enjoyed my stay there!


Amazing Hostel, completely revamped, very clean, comfy beds, cool rooftop and social events, big TV room and helpful staff in a great location, what more could you want? Ignore old reviews it's under new ownership, will stay here again. Thanks!

Would not stay here again. Our room was missing a window so very loud at night. People were smoking at 2am inside the room. Unfriendly atmosphere. The showers were also cold.


Amazing hostel! Clean, friendly staff, mainly new facilities, good location and just amazing partys on their rooftop! (BYO) One of the best hostels I've stayed in Australia.

Ok hostel. Newly renovated, so the bathrooms and dorms were fresh!! Comfy beds. Kitchen was too small for the amount of people on the hostel, and not too well equipped. The worst thing was that there was no air con in the room (at least the 12 bed), which made it extremely "stuffy" and hot in the room. Location is good and value for money too:)


Nice place, not far from the very centre. Friendly staff, good bunk beds. Could do with more cups and some extra kitchen utensils in general. Still, a nice place.


People staying there were kind of freaky. The 'old timers' would get very drunk and noisy every night, pouring beer all over the place and acting weird. Staff was friendly though. Clean facilities. Great bathrooms. Good wifi! But kitchen was way too small for all the people there. Neighborhood kind of sketchy too with junkies/ prostitutes. They were renovating during over stay - very inconvenient but not much to do about it. Maybe mention on website?


Quit OK. I was with my 28 years a bit old. Drunk young people a lot. Bathroom were cleaned every day and is seperate drom room with nice showers and enough toilets. I miss free WiFi and chargelocations.


Alright hostel. Tv room is good kitchen is clean. People are very noisey on roof top terrace just a bunch of children shouting YMCA. 12 bed dorm was unbearable 1st night so so hot with not a very good fan. Staff were pretty non existent and the ones we did speak to were very boring. Would stay somewhere else in Sydney.


STAY HERE! Perfect location-Gym,Internet Cafes,Supermarket,City&Kings Cross all near.Best NYE on the rooftop overlooking fireworks of the bridge.Made loads of friends as solo female.Staff are hosteliers work hard are fun will party with you!Spent so much time chilling in lounge watching simpsons on comfy sofas.If they could replace smudge on TV would be amazing&aircon would be epic.Maybe nightmanager Ned could do a fun run? U'd like that wudn you Ned? Thanks so much. Roisin French from SURREY! X
