    I enjoyed my stay there. The food choices were great. The evening meal was well priced too.

    This was the first of 3 hostels I stayed in while in Sydney and I wish I’d spent more time here. Staff was very friendly. Common area was large with a game room upstairs and a big rooftop area to hang out in, with view of the opera house. I’m traveling solo for the first time and I was feeling really awkward about talking to people but went on a harbor walk with the hostel and had a great time. Everyone I talked to was solo traveling too. Great place to stay!

    I booked this for my 84 yo mum. She loved it and will definitely be back. Location was perfect as she was able to get to the ferries and trains. She was very impressed with the cleanliness and quite happy to roll up her sheets and drop them off downstairs.

    Outstanding! The staff are knowledgeable and helpful! The kitchen is immense and has everything you could need! Proximity to Circular Quay and the Opera House and bridge were very convenient! The way they built it around the archeological dig site within the building was really cool. Rooms were super clean and the lockers were big enough for my suitcase should I have felt the need to lock it up. The rooftop amenities were awesome! The view though was my favorite part!!!

    Happily surprised. Took train from Sydney airport to Circular Quay then easy walk to the hostel. Gorgeous views from rooftop deck. Kitchen well stocked and clean. Bathrooms very clean-used soaking bathtub every night- bonus‼️ Average bunk bed mattress. Sleeping area carpet was old/stained but clean (most areas were not carpeted) and floors were clean. Room Lockers felt safe. good storage lockers for before/after checkin/out. Would definitely return

    Great location, more like a hotel than a hostel - so little to no social hostel atmosphere. Sunrise from the roof top is brilliant but lonely
