    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.

    Very Good

    Bed was pretty uncomfortable. I could feel the springs inside the mattress. I was also bummed that I missed the pancake breakfast because It wasn’t ready by 8am and I couldn’t wait around for it. Staff was friendly but I wish they would have given a tour of the place. I was only showed my room. I didn’t know where reception was when it was time to check out. Not a party hostel and location was pretty close to central station.

    Overall ok stay if you just want a bed for a couple of nights. But I wouldn't recommend staying if you're looking to meet other backpackers or have a more social stay as it doesn't really have that atmosphere. Free pizza on Wednesday nights was cool though.

    The hotel staff were friendly and I was given a quiet room in a central city location. Unfortunately, the room was dirty and not up to the $95s I paid for a "deluxe room". The shower had someone else's hair covering the drain and there was no soap of any kind provided. The bathroom really needed a deep scrub and the water smelt funny. The hot water would suddenly go freezing cold and then boiling hot. The beds were squeaky and old. This place definitely needs a renovation!

    Worst atmosphere ever; most people staying here were working so not friendly. Beds were uncomfortable and kitchen very very small so hard to cook properly in. WiFi only works in the hallways and the showers were not clean at all. Only good thing was location; v easy to walk everywhere from. Otherwise I’d not recommend staying- we were glad it was only for 2 nights.

    The place could’ve definitely been cleaner!! Beds and pillows are completely dirty I was afraid to have any bedbugs The shared rooms were completely a mess !girls had their clothes all over the floor, The bathroom door didn’t lock properly and it was so dirty! Some girls they kind of live there for months in the hostels so they had their stuff all over. No AC in the room and NO windows in the rooms! Had trouble sleeping at night because it was so HOT, wouldn’t recommend the place.
