Awesome hostel staff were always happy to help even tho I forgot which room I was in about 5 times prety far from beaches but it's easy enough to get to them with public transport

Two things that can be improved 1) Free in-room wifi should be provided. 2) Free luggage storage can also be provided though there are money charged lockers provided.

Our bathrooms was really dirty since there had been some parties during the weekend. It was not really nice. Otherwise it was okay. I didn´t really spend much time there - I was out exploring the city.

It was ok, great location next to central station and in the heart of the city. The Bathrooms were a little unclean. Not a bad stay - typical Big hostel!!

I took a twin room and for some reason they upgraded me to a double room. Still my room was nothing to write home about: firstly, it was very cold at night, even colder than on the street outside. Secondly, the window didn't seem to close fully, and so the noise from the street came into the room uninhibited. And Pitt St is one noisy street! The shared toilets / bathroom are set up in such a way that there is very little privacy, you can hear everything anyone else is doing - weird.

Hi There, Thanks for taking the time out and leaving us a review! It's always much appreciated. My apologies if you found the room too cold. It's very hot here in summer so we try to make it comfortable inside for our guests. We would have certainly adjusted it for you if you were too cold. Thanks for your feedback on our communal bathrooms. Wake up! Management

Really good hostel, perfect location, helpful staff and always something to do at side bar. Quite expensive but it is Sydney so that's expected! Would definitely stay here again!

Great location for trains and china town, you can pretty much walk anywhere from here. I stayed here twice during my time in OZ due to location. They have lots of activities on to help you meet people but at the same time you can stay out of the crowed if you don't fancy partying. Great place to explore Sydney from. Great beds and clean rooms and facilities. Highly recommend it.

not a traditional hostel, not a hotel ....... a third way that may not match people's wishes. For certain things is futuristic, for others it misses semplicity. It seems a place for youngs who look for some night to spend in Sydney and make noise with fun, and not a place for travelers discovering the world. It depends on what one looks for: good for the first ones, not for the others.

Great place to stay. Excellent location and access to/from Central Station. If coming from Airport take the free shuttle!!! Only bad thing is that you have to pay for internet, that is odd. Lockers are handy after you have done your check out, paid $7aud for 7 hours locker. I would recommend this place.

Ehm, it's a great hostel, little pricey but that's Sydney I guess. Very friendly staff and they are very helpful. I can really recommend this hostel if you don't have a too tight budget.

very busy hostel.

We had bunk beds with foam mattresses, lumpy pillows and tired sheets. when our suitcases were in the room we couldn't close the door the room was so very small. Sitting on the top bunk our outstretched hands could touch the walls at each end of the bed. No towels supplied, no soap or fridge or other amenities in the very tiny room. We guess we are passed wanting this type of accommodation, Up the road for $50 more two of us had a ensuite apartment with all mod cons. A no brainer really!
