    This hostel is perfect for the rate offered, it is a friendly hostel and very different from all the others that are for me much too big. Here you can chat with everyone easily. I highly recommend!!

    Good hostel, facilities are on point and very well maintained. The security is almost too good to the point where it gets a bit annoying. Atmosphere is great and so is the location. Staff is helpful where necessary.

    Beautiful dogs, beautiful views, and best of all the most beautiful, welcoming, and helpful staff that went beyond above and beyond, from recommendations to connecting me with their Cairns branch to help me with bookings there! And to top it off, it's in the best location – right across the street from the train station and from the grocery store. Lots of love to the Asylum family :)

    This hostel is super clean! I never saw any kitchen in hostel is sparking like this before lol. People here are mature and know what to do . This hostel is an old style building which have small common room but nice and cozy. The asian owners are so kind (I think they are ... if not ...i just misunderstood) , the ginger hairs staff and maid are so nice , friendly and helpful. The location is very close to kingcross station. It also have supermarket near by . Nothing complaint ^^

    Amazing value and nice staff. Quiet. Had some weird rules, like having a personal set of cutlery. Also a lot of passive aggressive and weird signs all over about having to follow the rules. I guess they are there for a reason though. Just weird.

    This hostel has character- which is something to note while booking it. Generally fun atmosphere, but does have a lot of long term backpackers which can create a bit of a cliquey environment. Overall, fun, decently clean and great staff. Close to a lot of what Sydney has to offer.

    Such lovely staff and a great atmosphere. The kitchen was pretty cramped and the bathrooms weren't always the cleanest (a few roaches kicking around) but I don't imagine you can get much better than this in central Sydney, especially not at this price. Would recommend

    Common areas are dirty, small, and overcrowded. Only dining area is also smoking area. I've stayed at cheap hostels before, but this one had more of an overall dirty and old feel. Rooms are ok. Location is far from most attractions. Wasn't terrible, but next time I would pay a few more dollars and stay somewhere nicer and closer. Friendly staff but not much going on at the hostel.

    Bathroom were just gross. People not flushing the toilet, wads of hair in the sink, 2cm of water on the floor always. Multiple signs are put up in bathrooms, kitchens, and dorms threaten people to clean up after themselves. Clearly the signs are not working.
