Definitely above average for the price. Staff and people were awesome. Restrooms aren't that nice but neither the worse for sure. I am excited for the next time.

Decent location and friendly staff, facilities were all fine. However slept really badly due to inconsiderate people in next room being drunk and rowdy for ages in the middle of night. Not the hostel's fault but it kind of ruined our stay here.

The place is a little grimey and there are a lot of creepy crawlies but if you can look past that it's a really nice hostel. I was in a dorm with mainly young German guys and they all seemed lovely and were very quiet at night and respectful. The girls on reception make the place. Anna is absolutely lovely and the new northern girl is doing such a good job.

The hostel itself is a friendly, clean place to be, the staff are very nice and the facilities are decent, however there are alot of Germans staying at this hostel, which isn't a problem at all- however when there are so many people from the same country they naturally speak in their own language making it difficult for other people to approach or make friends. I don't understand why this particular hostel lets so many people stay there from the same country at one time.

Great atmosphere, great people, great staff. Comfy beds, good location. Showers clean, although water temperature a bit iffy. WiFi in all rooms but sometimes slow. Will stay again next time in Sydney. Kept extending as I didn't want to leave!

Had sockets by all of the beds and the free WiFi was great but was pretty slow at peak times, showers were missing doors and the whole place seemed a bit run down

Good location near a train station and a reasonable walk to most of the main attractions. The staff are helpful; the facilities are clean; the free breakfast is basic but better than most hostels. The price is more than most but the hostel is maintained well. There are so many Germans here but I didn't feel excluded or unwelcome.

Clean rooms, Staff are very friendly and helpful, friendly roommates, free party everyday, near to Kings Cross train station and to the city. Summer House is for sure the place to be in Sydney :)
