    My stay at Sydney Hotel was one of my best hostel stay ever. Value for money is excellent. Prices are generally low for such a well located and clean place. However, the best part is the staff. Bassam has been incredibly helpful throughout my whole stay. He recommended and arranged existing adventures for me. He was also available to offer help for any query I had and most times he went out of his way to ensure I got the best deals for the experiences. I highly recommend this Sydney Hotel.

    The staff were very nice and helpful, the beds were comfortable and the AC was amazing. Great location with a 5 minute walk to downtown. Felt more like a hotel atmosphere and kitchen facilities weren’t ideal but overall it was a great experience!

    Sydney hostel was a great location, close to all the tourist attractions and good restaurants. We stayed there 2 nights and the staff were really welcoming and helpful. I think we asked for a double but just be aware its two single beds pushed together. The beds weren't super comfortable but it was still comfortable enough and especially for how cheap it was.

    (En-suite, private, double room) Really clean, comfy beds, fridge in room, air-con, balcony. Really friendly & helpful member of staff. Good WiFi. Didn’t have the breakfast, but there was plenty of good buffet style choice. Good sized communal room that was clean & comfy. We got there very late & had to leave early, but would have been very happy to stay longer. Close walk to good restaurants. Lots of info at reception for onward travel. Highly recommended.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Mostly a hotel so it lacks the social aspect of most hostels. Beds and pillows were thin but the air conditioning blows cold. Door to the room doesn’t lock but they do have lockers.

    Overall experience ok, but Wi-Fi doesn’t work at all in the rooms and we stayed in the shared room and private room and both of them no Wi-Fi. Important to know that there is a cat in the hostel and he enters the rooms, what can be a problem because of the allergies for me.
