The hostel was expensive and this wasn't reflected in the hostel itself. Nice dorms but toilets and showers were not always clean.
no free wifi a real let down

Terrible atmosphere. Felt like a prison. Very overpriced. Only good thing is location
The only grumbles I may have had during my stay were nothing really to do with the hostel or real trivial issues which are barely worth mentioning, as far as hostels go you would be hard pushed to find anywhere nicer (hence why I stayed beyond my original booking), I recommend here!
Nice and clean hostel! Good beds and sweet staff. Good location - close to the free bus that takes you Into the central city.

Recently redone so all facilities brand new. Very clean and tidy. Staff were very helpful. Rooms were small but not cramped and had a large locker. Security was good with a key to get into bedroom area and reception at night. Very good location in Sydney.
The 7 bed dorm on the 1st floor was great and spacious, better than the 4 bed dorm or the train carriages which were a bit noisy at night and in the morning. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, the common areas are good but my food was stolen in the fridge, which seems to happen quite often. No free luggage storage when you arrive early or leave late. No free internet.
was in a female 8 bed dorm, which had its own bathroom. nice and spacious. like many hostels the bed frames could do with an oil? to stop the squeaking when moving etc, I couldn't see any powerpoints but didn't really need one.
although i went there for one day, the place is perfect and central, clean and as my expectation. value to live there for short period
The staff were unfriendly, unwelcoming and pretty much had a conversation amongst themselves about laundry for 10 mins before checking me in. They were all around a computer giggling about something on their Facebook page. One of the girls in my dorm, disabled also had a nasty experience. Apart from the rude staff, the place is cold, no atmosphere. Location and cleanliness is the only good thing. Food gets stolen often so beware. No towels, soap or coffee/tea. Wifi $5 a day. Will not come again.
I would have a better explanation of how to get to the Hostel, the explanation is a bit confusing.
