    Had a great stay. The hostel is in a great location near most hot spots and transit. The rooms are nice and well appointed. The roof top deck is fantastic.

    Really good hostel. There was only one bathroom per room for 6 girls, but I didn't had a problem with that and there's one more down the hallway. It's up the hill so people with big bags must be prepared for a bit of exercise. The neighbourhood it's confuse with little streets and stairs, but by the second day I got it. I would definetely stay again.

    The location is amazing, steps from the bridge and the opera house. There are guests of all ages here, families with small children and older people included. No wifi available in the rooms, must use in a common area. If you buy breakfast you are expected to cook it yourself. When I spent $12 on a bacon and eggs breakfast I though the guy was joking when he handed me a baggie of raw bacon and a bowl of raw eggs. Reception staff were helpful.

    The view is amazing, staff is nice and helpful, facilities are good but the atmosphere in the hostel is very bad. Don't expect to meet anyone. There were a lot of highscholers on their trips etc. Would recommend for people looking for peaceful stay but not for backpackers looking for adventure.

    I liked it, would recommend for a short stay, maybe one night. I’m all for a chill relaxed vibe but I thought the atmosphere was pretty boring and so many young kids and families. The WiFi did not work for me at all which was really annoying.
