    Good location in busy city centre, anything you could wish for a typical backpacker hotel, TV room with movies, friendly atmosphere, fresh bed sheets. Staff is friendly and there are events every night.

    Outstanding events organised by the hostel and super friendly staff! There was a free Yacht party for Halloween which went through the Sydney harbour!! On the same night I locked myself out of my room at 4am and there was a staff member who got me back in without having to wake everyone up inside, great stay and location was perfect! Only downside was some of the facilities such as the showers were a bit worse for wear.

    World Backpacker's travel agent on site was super helpful! Breakfast is simple - toast, cereal, spreads, etc. Bathrooms are not very clean and there was rarely soap available... I suggest packing your own or bringing antibacterial gel. Elevator is handy. Lockers in room are a good size. Beds are comfy. Rooms were cleaned well, but cold at times (visited in August).

    Staff were friendly and accommodating, however a lot of long term “backpackers” were inconsiderate and rude, played music til 5am, waking everyone up asking for a phone charger. “Air con” blew out hot air making sleeping difficult. Showers, toilets and kitchen were cleaned daily but due to the grim guests they didn’t stay clean for long. Not the best start in Sydney.

    The hostel is in a very good position, just 1 minute far from the town hall and 10 from the Sydney train station. I enjoyed the atmosphere during my stay, however the facilities such as showers, bedrooms and the communal kitchen very quite dirty. Some long-term guests told me this is due to the fact that many employees are casual travelers who work in exchange for a free accommodation. Moreover, two lockers in my room were broken and easily openable, the power plug had no screws so was dangling

    I definitely don’t recommend this hostel, I stayed there just for 2 nights and for the second night when I got to the room, my bed was full, they gave it to someone else, Immediately I went to talk with the staff and Diego (I think is his name) was the only one that tried to find a solution. Also the kitchen, toilets and shower are not cleaned up. All the time I found it dirty.

    We stayed for two nights, the staff seemed nice but it seems like they haven't been trained in any customer service and it was just really rushed to give us our keys without giving any information about the hostel + the lift was broke. On the way to our rooms, we noticed the whole place smelt and the smell was worse in the rooms, I understand there's a lot of beds in rooms but the floor was just dirty and smelly. Showers were also filthy and not enough shower to bed ratio resulting in long wait

    The bathrooms were really dirty and gross the entire time I stayed here, and toilets were overflowed multiple times and just left like that. There was water all over the bathroom floors, and they all have a really bad smell. The laundry room was super messy too. The entire building was not well maintained and really run down. The location is great, but it’s still not worth it to stay here because of the poor condition of the facilities.
