    Honestly had the best week here! Staff are all amazing and ready to help with anything you need. We had a bit of a bad smell going on in our room and the girls on the front were quick to offer us a new room. It’s a small hostel to everyone knows everyone and it’s really easy to meet people. We will be back!

    By far the best hostel I have stayed in! The staff are all very welcoming and the whole hostel is very very clean. The hostel is cleaned morning, afternoon and in the evening! The showers are incredible and there is access to hairdryers and straighteners. There’s a great range of free breakfast in the morning and some evenings there is also free food on offer along with some events such as music bingo and trivia. This all added to my experience and I really enjoyed my stay!

    Good value for money and perfectly met my expectations. The hostel is rather small but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I did not hand out too much in the hostel but it felt quite social if you're after that. The location was perfect for me, really close to Central Station and heaps of bus stations around as well as fairly close to Surry Hills area with plenty of bars and a beautiful park right across the road. Best wifi ever!!!

    The bed is super comfortable and the general vibe of the hostel is very friendly. The staff are very kind and go out of their way to help you out. The kitchen is super cramped, so gets very crowded to access during breakfast. Great location :) 15 min walk to the central station and 5 mins to the Broadway shopping centre.

    The kitchen is super small and there is no other common room. The room was okay but small too! However, the free food some nights was good and the showers are okay. Nice option with the free gym.

    Very Good

    Hostel was clean and basic. Felt secure and was in a good, central location close to bus stops and a 30 min. walk to the Harbour. Staff was friendly. However, building was very cramped. The kitchen was too small for the amount of people, and there was no true common room (tv room was very small, room for 2 people max) and was squeezed in next to washer/dryers. Not a social hostel- felt that most guests were there long-term. A bit overpriced for what you get.

    Average hostel but one of the cheaper ones available. Kitchen and common room close at 11pm meaning you can't really relax and meet others in the hostel very easily. Location is very good as located 15 min walk from central station and staff are lovely, just needs a few tweaks to be a good hostel.
