although they have free wifi and location is very good but i got bug bite there,not worth to stay there.
the cleaning of the toilet is not satisfy. i have been "visit" the MAZE and NOMADS backpackeer hostel which is nearby Sydney backpaker, the kictchen is big and clean with enough cooking utensil and the toilet is clean at all time. However , the Sydney backpacker' kitchen is very small an no good. another thing , i don;t see that there is house keeping in the room................

Great hostel, perfect for people looking for more long term accommodation, beds were rock hard, pillows were very clinical, but other than that, decent kitchen, good communal area, free wifi. I'd stay there again.
Unfriendly staff, kitchen small and avg but very clean hostel
The wifi didn't really work, the showers were filthy, pillows and beds were really noisy, and the most of the rooms were party rooms, so you didn't get enough sleep.
We stayed around New Years Eve, so everything was very expensive. Besides from that the hostel is central and the toilet facilities are clean. The kitchen and common room was a bit small for so many people, but else it was fine.
The best part of the hostel was the location. Not sure the floors had been mopped this year which caused the place to smell.
Great location, and good value for money. Very poor kitchen facilities,4 forks, 4 spoons for the whole hostel! Minimal space to prepare food. Surfaces, microwave, floor and hobs dirty. Toilets smell stale. Showers powerful, however dirty room.
The location is perfect, in the city center. Really central! We've had a few different rooms here, some beds are really hard and some are okay. The pillows are a bit strange. The kitchen is small, as people say, but I still found it to be worth the location. Plenty of bathrooms, though not always that clean. The female bathrooms were better. Still an okay hostel and we extended our stay.
no for single travellers. Really calm place, a lot of Asians who dont speak english and there isnt any people hanging around in the evenings so its really boring hostel.
The hostel needs some work. kitchen sucks! Atmosphere is non-existent ,and the staff were generally rude/Blunt. It was clean however,I give them that. Ideal hostel for a couple,not for a backpacker wanting to meet new people.
