    Awesome location in the heart of NewTown. Super cool places, bars , cafes, and cool clubs in the area. Hostel had a nice vibe with cool people. wifi works fast. Staff was friendly and gave tips to cool places and train station was really close. Newtown is one of Sydney coolest areas in my opinion.

    DO NOT STAY HERE if you have to check in after 6PM, you will be charged $25!!!! I have stayed in many hostels around the world and Australia, but never once I heard about charging for a late check in, more than double the price of an actual night. Anyway, upon finding this out I changed my plans and came at 1.20PM (check in opens 1-6) only to find out nobody was there to check me in. This whole experience left a bitter taste in my mouth. The hostel seems to be more suited for long-term guests

    Not great. It serves as both a hostel and accommodation for some barstaff school, which creates a fairly divisive atmosphere between the regulars and hostel guests. Even if you're not staying for a long time, this does mean using the communal areas can just be slightly uncomfortable. Not overly dirty but certainly not clean. Had good facilities, e.g. kitchen, laundry, showers. The surrounding area is surprisingly nice - lots of cool bars and restaurants - but I'd steer clear of this place.

    Cleaniness is an issue in this hostel - plus its messy. Its more for teenagers as it’s the bar tender school.

    Had a bad stay here. When I arrived things weren’t explained to me very well, so I didn’t know how to keep the window shut or that I had to use the front entrance to get in later on. Was given a key that didn’t work and had to wait outside in the freezing cold and rain for another guest to show up and let me in. Staff seemed really frazzled and distracted. Great location and price, but I won’t be staying again.

    Would stay away from this place. It’s basically a few dorm rooms, common room, kitchen, showers/bathroom for some sort of bartending school. Very unwelcoming and uncomfortable feeling for outsiders (non-bartending school people), and extremely dirty.
