My stay At Sydney Centrl Backpackers Was horrible. First of all, I got to tge hostel at 9:30 pm, , and When we come to do the check in at the hostel the receptionist was completly lost, he could'nt find our booking and it take too long. When we finally could check in , the room was smelling really strong , like a incense and we couldnt stay there. And the last thing The Hostel World charged me -$48 american Dolars before we check in. If my account is from Nz and the hostel in Australia.

Very good value for money. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Kitchen a bit cramped and dark but compensated by lovely rooftop with barbecue and ping pong table. Close to everything. I will be back.

Staff so rude and not interested! Especially the Italian, German/ Lithuanian speaking girl so rude and unfriendly! We couldn't bear the thought of sleeping there so booked Noah's in Bondi ! Million times better. Central has no communal area and everyone who stays there actually lives there. The kitchen is rotten and mauldy ! Do no stay there pay a little more then stay at central backpackers !!!!!! Oh and we didn't get our money back which legally we could !

I'd leave Sydney before having to stay here ever again. The place is disgusting, full of people who've clearly been there for a long Time and are working, walking in and out of each other's rooms, shouting and screaming. So roudy at night time, felt like I was in a zoo! Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, you can get a much nicer hostel for the same price elsewhere! We only went here because everywhere else was fully booked and we left it too late, only place available! Brutal! 😖

Wasnt exactly the cleanest and there was only 2 showers and toilets on each floor so found myself constantly waiting. Great location though and reception staff really nice so cant complain too much.
