Bathrooms weren't always clean - even when I told the front desk staff - they weren't cleaned by the end of the day. E2 of the 3 elevators were often not working. Only 3 power outlets in a 6 person dorm. Location was good - across from the train station. Mostly young people, so atmosphere wasn't bad.

Clean, friendly staff, everything that I could ask for in a hostel. My only complaint was with the older generation of guests. I've never stayed in a hostel where people my parents' age also stay. I had a woman in my room who actually tried to treat me like she was my mother. She had crazy standards for how we kept our stuff and even yelled at me over a misunderstand that I apologized for. I heard a similar story from someone else. It wouldn't keep from staying there, but it was different.

In a great location for getting around Sydney and the surrounding areas as it's so close to Central Station. Hostel was nice enough, but because it is so huge it's not great if your on your own as meeting and talking to people is quite difficult. If you're already travelling with friend however, it would be a good place to stay.
