    Such a great hostel. This to me is the perfect balance of a good social hostel. All the rooms, bathrooms & facilities are very clean. I quite enjoyed the daily events because it’s a good opportunity to meet fellow travellers. If I’m ever back in Sydney I would love the opportunity to be able to volunteer at this place!

    Best hostel on the east coast!! This hostel was amazing with a social and family style atmosphere! The kitchen and shower rooms were always spotless and the free breakfast/ evening socials were the best that I’ve come across! Would definitely stay again!!

    Small, but still lively hostel in Ultimo/Chippendale area! Free breakfast from 8-10am is better than I've seen at most places. Note that it's about a 10 min walk from Central.

    Mad Monkey is one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed at. I also really appreciate the large, luggage size lockers for each visitor. Really great and warm staff. The common space is a bit small, but if you're not planning on spending too much time in the hostel, this is a perfect option. The location is perfect -- easy to get downtown, but not right in the heart of downtown.

    Was a weird time to be in a hostel cos of the corona scare stuff, lots of long termers so felt a bit cliquey. My room was tiny, luckily it was never full so was manageable but we could barely move around just the 2 of us. Showers were decent, could’ve done with more hand soap in the bathrooms, especially given the circumstances at the time but other than that no complaints. Location was decent, not exactly central but easy enough to get everywhere by public transport

    Nice hostel if you want to be near the center. The rooms are OK, my bed was really creaky and the traffic noise was really loud in my room. The common areas are quite small, the kitchen area got really cramped at breakfast time.

    Didn’t realise how far away this hostel was from main tourist attractions at the time of booking but it is quite far. We got trains from the harbour as it was a 50 minute walk. Rooms are very small and atmosphere is weird. 90% of the people here are long term on working holiday visas so if you’re just passing through it’s not very inclusive. Hot water broke during our stay and took about 12 hours to fix, staff offered free pizza the next evening as an apology but too late for us
