    The staff was wonderful. The place was a little run down and toilets and showers were a bit messy. Was also pretty noisy late into the night (outside), but other than that the bed was comfy and the location was close to everything we needed to go to. The friendly lady at the info desk helped us find a lovely place to eat near Darling Harbour. Our room was ready as soon as we arrived in the morning and we were able to clean up. Was overall a nice stay for the price of a private room.

    Bathrooms are gross, and the whole building is kinda ghetto, but that’s what you pay for anyways so can’t complain that much.

    The bathroom and kitchens were filthy. We stayed at a weekend and the noise in the hostel was insane until 5am and the kitchen next morning was disgusting. The photos shown above definitely need to be updated, the place is grotty. The hostel is a great location though, and if you’re on a budget, don’t intend on getting sleep and don’t care about hygiene you might not mind it

    Location was excellent but I felt that everything else this hostel delivered was run of the mill. I’m pretty tolerant with cleanliness but I did notice it was a bit dirty. Although staff are always cleaning, mostly things were in semi disrepair so no matter how clean they were it didn’t feel like you wanted to touch them. Very cliquey social atmosphere when I was there, not the hostel’s fault but it did impact how I felt staying there. Overall it was fine but nothing special.

    I really didn’t enjoy my time here... especially concerning the cleanliness and the showers. I stayed 4 nights and had 4 cold showers! The toilets were dirty also. The only good this is the location ...

    The bathrooms on my floor were absolutely disgusting the entire week we were there. I realize you get what you pay for, but i figured for being a highly rated hostel, i'd be getting better facilities.
