    Lovely hostel! Short walk from the cbd as its very close to Oxford St. Super clean and well maintained, the ladies penthouse is really nice too!! The manager, Pierre, was very accommodating and funny! Free breakfast and all crockery is accessible, you get your own set which is a brilliant idea. We will be back if we're in Sydney again :)

    Small hostel with awesome staff and clean rooms, fair price but it's not directly in the city center so you have to walk half an hour to get there

    It's a great hostel, and I'd go back if I have the chance. They're close enough to a mass transit line to make getting around easy. Plus, they had soy milk out at breakfast and that's better in my coffee. Thymey had a fully stocked kitchen so you could cook if you wanted and the sinks were in another, smaller room so things were less crowded that way.

    Solid place if you are travelling or working. Most people there were on working holiday visas for a year or more. Wifi is dicey and didn't work on upper floors - I had to go elsewhere to get wifi when I needed it. Owner is really cool and friendly - made the whole hostel a free BBQ meal!

    The traffic noise was insane, big fan of the roof top area I threw up 2 times in 2 days & I didn't get kicked out. Bar downstairs was getting renovated & was closed 🙃

    A bit worn down, but clean enough. Room very small, no lockers, so either trust people or keep carrying your valuables with you around town. Nice staff. Terrible beds, thin mattresses and poor pillows.

    Room wreaked of cigarettes, dirty old carpets haven’t been deep cleaned in a while. One tiny fan for the whole room. Very difficult to sleep in the heat. Beds were incredibly uncomfortable and soooooo squeaky and loud with the slightest movement. Bathrooms were lovely and always clean. Great location but would not stay here again.

    Was greeted very strangely by the staffs who made negative comments about our nationality and made us feel uncomfortable. The hostel resources such as the shared kitchen and bathrooms were quite dirty and unkept. This would have all been tolerable if we could have at least gotten a nights sleep, but unfortunately the beds were the most uncomfortable we have ever slept on. They squeaked and rattled with the slightest movement so hopefully you and everyone in the room sleep like corpses.

    The hostel looks nothing like the photos online. We were put in a 4 bed dorm with no other people as there were only 2 mattresses. The other 2 I can only assume were in the pile of decaying mattresses on the roof. The mattress itself was SO uncomfy, you could feel the bed frame through it! The girl on reception who checked us in was friendly but the gentleman who I assume were the staff were so rude! There were cockroaches in the room. The only good thing was the location.
