    Great location, the staff were super friendly and even upgraded me from a 16 bed to my own private room for free. They were unaware that was the first night back in the city after doing 3.5 months of farm work so I appreciated it more than anything! Thank you so much.

    Amazing hostel. Hits the nail on the head with a fantastic backpacker vibe. Clean facilities (maybe cleanest I’ve seen) and quiet, comfortable beds.

    The place was always a mess, and the showers and stuff were always running... however that being said I met some great people, the rooftop is a lovely place to hangout on, and the location doesn’t get much better.

    Great location, fantastic that there’s air con in the rooms. However the kitchen is small and the toilets and showers are filthy! There’s a shower on the third floor that is constantly dripping - which is awful considering there’s a drought right now...

    The dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in. REALLY DIRTY. Every surface of the hostel is dirty. The showers are nasty full of hair, no matter the time of the day. The kitchen is only cleaned in the morning for the rest of the day it's dirty. The atmosphere is non-existing. THERE ARE WAY BETTER PLACES to stay in Sydney then this. Not worth the money at all.

    Location, roof terrace and tv room are all this hostel has going for it. Too few and too dirty showers and toilets. Broken facilities, leaking showers and noisy beds. Reception will move you if requested but alternative rooms are also very poor. This hostel has so much potential, sadly the lack of investment and management is condemning the property to poor reviews like this. Backpackers are running the hostel and the standards are low as a result. Management is needed to ensure quality

    This is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Reception staff was so rude and never willing to help. Every part of the hostel was dirty: dirty rooms with mould and damp in so many places. The showers were disgusting with hair and stains everywhere. Toilets were never clean, and basically falling to bits. The kitchen was always dirty as people never washed up. Didn’t meet a single nice person in this hostel and can easily say I will never be staying there again.
