Absolutely top hostel! Loved the layout, with all the rooms centered around a living space. Staff were very friendly, cannot recommend enough. The deals they offer for activities were brilliant, especially the white water rafting. Free wifi was an incredibly bonus, especially in New Zealand!
The entire place was absolutely filthy, the room had no windows, panels were falling off the ceiling and for some reason there was a fridge in the room which was full of rotting food - not sure when it was last cleaned out. We took one look in the kitchen and decided that neither of us could bare to cook anything.
Definitely one of the better hostels we experienced in Sydney, staff were very friendly. Perhaps not quite enough room in the kitchen area but absolutely loved the roof!
Although there was nothing really that wrong with the hostel, I think it was just too big for my tastes. The rooms we were in didn't have air conditioning, only fans, and we only found out the day we left that we could have paid a dollar more to change - more communication from staff at check in would have been appreciated. Wifi in common areas only.
Met a lot of great people at this hostel, staff were very friendly and helpful (though walking you out every time you leave did seem slightly excessive). Breakfast on the roof terrace was great, one of the best we had.
