    Atmosphere/cleanliness excellent, private room was very comfortable and peaceful, the fridge/fan/tv/coffee pods were a nice touch. Staff were relaxed and friendly, and very accommodating about a last-minute change to my booking, change for the washing machine, etc. Would definitely stay there again.

    Relaxed hostel with nice staff and clean facilities, a bit out of Sydney, but if you don’t want to see the centre it’s all right

    The hostel is a little further away from the city center (4 stations by train until Central) but has a nice and quiet atmosphere. Also Brani is the nicest person you'll meet.

    Good Stay, Quiet, Clean , Nice people. Will I stay here again? Yes but if you want something close to nightlife, bars, beach this is not the place to stay. I stayed here because it was close to work. I liked it.

    Staff are helpful. Location is good. However the fridges were stuffed with too many things guests put in, so need a great disposal, I think.

    This is a hostel for workers or long-term lodgers, not for someone new to hostels. Basic needs are met but facilities could be better. Bathroom lights are on a timer so be quick otherwise you’ll be in the dark (no natural light in bathrooms). There are two building, so if you’re in the “other one” as the receptionist put it, you need to walk outside and round the corner to get to the reception or kitchen.

    Room was small and very hot and stuff with only one desk fan. No air con throughout the building. Security tag needed for doors but no lockers for belongings. The guys in the room had certainly made themselves at home so there was stuff everywhere and it was dirty. Bedsheets were clean. Bathroom wasn’t! Bathroom light is on a timer for “15 minutes” but definitely not that long. Breakfast was good to be included but just some old cereals and a white loaf for toast.
