    Good, basic hostel. Really nice staff. Rooms were a bit hot and more showers would have been nice but location is good, walking distance to the city, china town, buses, darlinghurst etc

    Clean beds and friendly staff, 2 min walk from Central Station. Definitely not a party hostel but if you are looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay just before or after catching a train/plane, this is it :)

    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.

    Good location right outside central station. We were in a shared room which was clean but very hot! On arrival staff were very kind helping us with our itinerary. Hostel was not very social and we never did find the free pizza on wednesday!

    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.

    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.
