Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good vibe for young backpackers, who are in Sydney for a good time I.e getting drunk on goon. Good social life though, plenty to do each day. However the kitchen is filthy and lacks utensils, pans plates, mugs and glasses. The hobs don't work. Plus there is cockroaches everywhere in the whole hostel. The rooms and dorms are very basic, dirty and smell musky. The cleaners don't know how to clean. I have seen worse, didn't know this was possible!

Worst Hostel I have ever stayed in. They have a really weird smell everywhere that is clearly covering up some other smell. The rooms are tiny and they only have ensuites. The ensuites usually have broken doors one didn't even have a lock. The duvet was covered in stains and the colour of the place is depressing. The kitchen has cockroaches and just always looked dirty. The lift was the most annoying thing ever as it stopped on every floor and one of them didn't even go to the ground floor.
