    I stayed here for a month and in several rooms due to me always extending my stay last minute. Most of all I want to mention the exceptionally lovely, competent and friendly staff who went out of their way to help me even with small personal matters. All rooms were immaculately clean and I always got a great night's sleep in comfortable beds. Kitchen and bathrooms were constantly cleaned by yha staff. Relaxed and social atmosphere with cooking events happening every night and party if you fancy

    The central yha probably has a better vibe if you want to party, as this one was more chilled out. Also that one has a nice pool. Lots of people at this one were long-term people so a bit cliquey. The events each night are great and you can go to the other yha ones too. There is cheap food each night but runs out almost immediately so get there early. Bathrooms are big and good, has laundry and irons. Outside area is great with deckchairs and a bbq. Staff are helpful if you need something.

    Convenient base for travelers who've just arrived in Sydney. I am not a partier and I found this hostel had the appropriate balance of peace and quiet vs. option to party. The kitchen is great and the wifi is strong in the common areas. Nice concept to have some of the rooms made from re-purposed train cars. I must note, however, there was a young man working at reception who could improve his customer service skills. The rest of the staff were sweet, kind, and helpful.

    Great location with good facilities and really helpful nice staff members. Unfortunately in terms of a backpacker atmosphere there wasn’t really one. Lots of people who have been staying there for a month and use it as a base for working. Other than that the other stuff was good but yeh not a great atmosphere.

    Good location right next door to central station and a short walk to Woolworths. Kitchen was big and we used it almost every night. For the price we paid it was everything we expected but our only negatives were that the showers and toilets were not cleaned regularly and they put us in one of the train rooms which is literally right next to one of the platforms, which meant we were being woken up early every day to the sound of trains.

    Worst hostel staff ever, 90% of them are bitter mean spirited people. Even at check in the guy behind the desk couldn't pretend to be a little nice for 5 seconds. Why do these people even work in hospitality/get hired? Even bad customer service by Australian standards. Location is amazing right next to the trains, bathrooms are clean and nice. If you don't have a room with A/C some nights are brutal, I got lots of mosquito bites from roommates opening windows etc. Overall good besides the staff.
