Good location. We easily walked everywhere we wanted to go from the hostel. Good for meeting people but not really a party atmosphere. Our room had limited power points. Overall good hostel.

Most horrible hostel where I have been to. I would love to say 'you get what you pay for' but I paid good money for this. Rooms where smelly and disgusting. Service was bador at least it looked like the people didn't care. I fell unsafe and I'm still wondering if I got a disease from here. Just pure nastiness, wouldn't recommend.

Good location but otherwise not a very good hostel. Walking distance of all the main attractions and many restaurants. Staff were not very friendly or helpful about Sydney attractions and tours. Nothing organized through the hostel. Rooms and bathrooms were not very clean.

Serviceable hostel in the middle of Sydney. The shared bathroom and kitchens are somewhat grimy. It was insanely cold in our room (they charge $2 for extra blankets, so this may be a ploy for more revenue...?). We booked a private room with two beds, and it came equipped with a fridge and TV (no hot water kettle unfortunately). The free wifi was pretty good, and the room was clean. Guests seem to be mostly long-term clients who keep to themselves.

Absolutely foul. So unclean. Other hostel stayers were loud and abnoxious. Would never stay there again. Have never stayed somewhere so bad, even travelling most of the world
