I do NOT recommend this hostel. It's cheap, but not even worth the money. Better pay extra $1-2 for better hostel around here. First of all, security issue. There are so many people in the building and rooftop for partying. Later on I found out more than half of people were NOT staying at the hostel. Just came from outside to party. Also main front door key hole is broken. Managers know about it, but they dont care to fix this issue. Therefore, people do not lock the door and everyone comes in.


very noisy with crazily drunken young people! limited time kitchen is overcrowded with long termers and hard to use. I've been to many accommodations in more than 100 countries, but this is one of least comfortable place to stay... Only free breakfast is ok!


Quit OK. I was with my 28 years a bit old. Drunk young people a lot. Bathroom were cleaned every day and is seperate drom room with nice showers and enough toilets. I miss free WiFi and chargelocations.


Alright hostel. Tv room is good kitchen is clean. People are very noisey on roof top terrace just a bunch of children shouting YMCA. 12 bed dorm was unbearable 1st night so so hot with not a very good fan. Staff were pretty non existent and the ones we did speak to were very boring. Would stay somewhere else in Sydney.


STAY HERE! Perfect location-Gym,Internet Cafes,Supermarket,City&Kings Cross all near.Best NYE on the rooftop overlooking fireworks of the bridge.Made loads of friends as solo female.Staff are hosteliers work hard are fun will party with you!Spent so much time chilling in lounge watching simpsons on comfy sofas.If they could replace smudge on TV would be amazing&aircon would be epic.Maybe nightmanager Ned could do a fun run? U'd like that wudn you Ned? Thanks so much. Roisin French from SURREY! X

Small rooms but nice staff! The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen fine. Partying til 4am


The Hostel was very warm at all times and we had to leave the door open which meant the room was not secure. The cleanliness was quite bad and ive stayed in a lot of hostels and this was one of the worst.

for the price it was a great hostel. but if there should be more lockers for security. and there was a funny smell lurking around the hostel. but for the money it was it was great value.
