    I've had a good experience in general but one toilet for a whole floor (at least 40 people) is just not enough The people in my room were loud but that's just bad luck Free dinner on some nights and free breakfast included so that's nice Staff is nice and helpful :)

    In Sydney there's not a lot of places you can avoid roaches but still there seemed to be more roaches than average here. The showers are also very temperamental and run hot and cold and sometimes not really at all. They offer cool things like movie night with free popcorn and pancake Sundays though and the people staying here are all lovely and welcoming and the only reason I left was because the price kept increasing every week and for the same price I could avoid roaches almost completely!

    I don't often say this, but I would definitely avoid this hostel. The price, location and staff was good but it did not compensate for the uncomfortable amount of roaches, below average bathrooms and for the poor atmosphere. I consider the atmosphere poor simply because the grand majority of guest are long stay guest with jobs and who all already know each other well. If you are a traveler who plans on only spending a few days in Sydney, this not the best place for you.

    There was an abundance or drug addicts and homeless in the immediate area. The shower pressure was a joke and hard to get a nice temperature. The room I stayed in was ok I guess but the fans were so loud. Clean enough.
