The dorms and provided linens were clean. The toilets were average-sometimes out of toilet paper and the floors were often very wet. The showers were clean. The kitchen was kind of gross-wasn't cleaned (ie garbage changed etc often enough); only one of the two stoves worked. Best aspects were it's closeness to the City Hall train station

Rooms are equipped with a fridge - tv and lockable lockers - ensure you bring a pad lock. Beware - some rooms like the twin bunk private rooms don't have a window. Good Roof top BBQ and smoking area.

I dont know of a good backpacker in Sydney but this certainly isnt the place. Poor atmosphere, only one kitchen with not enough cutlery and broken boiler, small common room.


Great Location, the rooms are clean the building is clean and the toilets too, a good backpacker to choose in Sydney, just they need best security I think.

Staff downstairs should be more welcoming to new guests. That makes a huge difference. But overall it was a good hostel.
