Somewhat lacking that good time hostel vibe.

Nice hostel that is centrally located. I did have my good hiking shoes taken. But I deem that has my fault since I didn't lock anything up.


Very good hostel and easy access from airport.


I have stayed here before and I would stay here again, good location right next to the train station and easy to get around town from


Arrived late, only stayed the night and all was as expected

I liked that it was close to the coach and train stations. The staff were informative, the lounge area inviting and great coffee at the little cafe.


Great location, clean, friendly staff, good cheap wifi


We love this hostel, stayed for a week and were particularly impressed by the location and the set up of the hostel. We met a great group of people there. We would only suggest that they make more of an effort to get the backpackers together for nights out. And somehow improve the tolerance of noise in the early hours of the morning. And find the Tim Tam and wine theif!!

The bathrooms could be cleaned more often in such a big hostel. And Wifi could be for free! The location is perfect for visiting the city and the rooms are ok.


The place was pretty awesome, although the staff didn't seem to please to be there. Every time I went to reception or walked pasted they were texting or checking Facebook on their mobiles. I think some better directions in the train station could be clearer is was really confusing to find. Also the pillow were paper thin, the aircon is great though :)


Great location, right next to central station, good facilities and clean. Bit more expensive than some of the hostels in Sydney but worth it. Staff were a bit miserable on checkin but think they were just having an off day.
