    Staff are incredible, friendly and accommodating. Hostel is on the quieter side which is what we were looking for but still a nice atmosphere with friendly guests. Location is perfect. Central location which is walking distance to everything. Good security with key card system and lockers. Only complaint was a slightly funky smell in the corridors but the rooms themselves were fine and everything very clean. There are events and a common area/tv room. Excellent value especially for the location

    Great location near Central Station. Staff were super friendly. My sink wasn't the cleanest, but all sheets etc were. Fantastic price for a single room! My only issue was that my bedroom was located next to the staircase, with my bed right next to the wall, so I got woken up numerous times throughout the night by people loudly returning from nights out etc. A shame, but what can you do!

    Whilst the building is quite old and could do with a makeover the accommodation is comfortable and homely. The staff were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The showers and toilets were cleaned regularly and the bed linen was crisp and clean making my stay comfortable. The location is perfect within walking distance to the city and darling harbour and public transport also close by. Don't judge a book by its cover I will definitely stay at home backpackers again.

    The hostel was very quiet, not many people around. Very strange layout, hostel is split into 2 sides. Beds very squeaky and only get a sheet no duvet. Location very good, staff very friendly.

    The first and only hostel I had, where you have to pay deposit for a blanket and a towel. Unsatisfactory beds, not enough toilets. I would not take a shower there because of the broken windows.
