    I had the best time staying at this hostel. There's a lot of longtermers but all of them very welcoming. There are daily activities that the hostel provides that make your stay so much fun specially if you want to know what's best to do while you're here. Staff always gives you a hand when you need one. I would definitely recommend this hostel and for sure I'll stay here again if I'm back in the city.

    Secret Garden Backpackers is a lovely place to stay if you're planning to stay in Sydney for longer. Great location - it's not in the crazily busy CBD, but if you want to go there you can reach it in just 8 min. by bus or 15 min. walking. It's an old building, so the facilities are not super nice, but everything is clean and that's what matters. The kitchen is a bit small and can get quite busy. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for the bathroom too. Staff and guests are very friendly and kind.

    We meant to stay there for 2 nights, but we had leave after our first night. Do not be fooled by the photos shown on the app. It looks nothing like it. Luckily there was free BBQ when we arrived. But the back garden was so messy.. we saw a rat and cockroaches running around.. The room was so messy, stuff everywhere and it looks like it hasn’t been cleaned for a long time. The staff understood when we told her that we want to leave and we got our money back for the second night.
