    Perfect for a week in Sydney. Even had european electric outlets, I guess, they put you in rooms depending on your nationality. Showers clean, pressure and everything more than satisfying. Never had to queue. Air in rooms was good and cool. Reception literally always reachable. Key Card System is dope. Location IS PERFECT, I repeat, PERFECT. Literally everything in walking distance. Tram in front of the door.

    It’s not the first time we’ve stayed at 790 on George when travelling to Sydney. The price is good, and it is very easy to get anywhere with Central Station next door for access to Metro and regional and suburban rail and the new light rail, tram service stops out the front. Perfect. Comfortable bed and easy walking distance to restaurants, pubs and cafes.

    This hostel was fine, clean enough and secure. I wouldn’t stay here long term but it got the job done for a few nights.

    I mistakenly checked one day ahead of my stay and I was forced to check out on the stated dated despite of the fact that i had checked a day early and there was no adjustment to what i paid. The advantage is that the hostel is located in the heart of the city, but for admin's cooperation, i cannot say anything. I wish i could meet the manager to get my issue fixed but i did not want to escalate anything to anyone and i complied with the rules and left at my stated time.

    This hostel is basically a halfway house. The average age of people staying is 50+. People were really strange and drunk. I was attacked in the kitchen over someone thinking I touched their pot. I was really scared and upset so I packed my bags and left the hostel. I got a full refund back for my stay as I didn't feel safe. The staff were very nice but they must know that the people they have staying are not your average backpacker. YHA and Wake up are around the corner so go there instead.

    The room I stayed in was filthy the walls hadn’t been cleaned the power points covered in thick dust the door vent couldn’t even see it past the dust built up on it. Chewing gum stuck on the underneath of the bunk bed so the rooms clearly aren’t cleaned properly
