    Loved staying here. Staff is super friendly and personable. It is literally a minute walk to the train station and a supermarket which is convenient if you don’t want to eat out the whole time. Would definitely stay here again.

    I have had the best time staying here, and would definitely advise anybody who is looking to make friends to stay here. The only reason I moved to a hostel was to find friends who were in the same position as myself, and definitely met the best people. I have extended my stay further because this place is great!

    Really great value private room: cleaned up and renovated completely from years past but only a bit more expensive (probably also just inflation). Staff friendly but have changed it from a party hostel to a definitely-not-party hostel such that we felt a bit unwelcome on Saturday night and left to go out rather than hang around, which is contrast from previous years. Felt a bit like treated like children. But the other guests were still just as welcoming and fun as past. King's Cross dead tho :/

    A good place to stay in Sydney and I feel you definitely get your value for money. Free breakfast every morning. Hostel was always clean and the rooms are a good size and also included lockers and a fridge. Staff are nice and helpful. Location is good as it’s not a far walk to most of the attractions such as the opera house. Late night eats nearby as well.

    Great location near the train. But kind of dingy looking & unkempt inside. The WiFi was awful. Have to have FB & then check in whenever you needed to use it & even then it was spotty.

    Looks a bit dingy from the outside, but rooms were really nice with an absolutely stunning view of skyline, I even saw fireworks from my bed!

    Bathrooms are clean and the hostel is good located. Kitchen is usually crowded and messy. I did not really like the athmosphere, lots of people currently living there occuping the place as their own house, what made me feel unconfortable. The common area with the tv is smelly and they have two dogs living in the hostel. I love animals but I think it should be said in the description (if it is somewhere I did not see it). One of them will bark at you whenever you try to get to the common areas.

    Great location. Clean. The hangout areas and kitchen are pretty small and it's not the best value for the money. Great place to meet people as everyone was so friendly. The staff need to work on how they treat their PAYING guests. Was at least one shouting match a week between guests and staff and the cops were even called once. Passive aggressive signs about respect are on every surface. The last straw was when they took all the cutlery. Need to work on treating guests w/ respect & as adults!
