    Great hostel with great staff. Breakfast is very basic and could be improved for example providing orange juice or gluten free bread. Place is generally cleaned every day however bedding was not changed during the duration of my stay which was 14 nights.

    There was almost everywhere cockroaches... in the Kitchen, on the toilets and in the floors. The People didn't clean their dishes so I'm not wondering why there are cockroaches.

    The staff are lovely and really helpful. The room was SO hot and absolutely infested with cockroaches, crawling out of my suitcase and bedsheets. It felt more like a French student house which was fine, but it does get very rowdy and people seem to have fairly established friendship groups so can be tricky to make friends. Kitchen has good facilities, lots of utensils and a good stove. This place is fine if you’re on a budget, but would only recommend for 1 night as it’s dirty and rundown.

    Good: Kitchen, breakfast, some of the stuff and not too far from the CBD. Bad: Pretty dirty, very smelly (!!) and people stay in their groups.

    Overall the hostel does what it needs to do. Rooms with beds and lockers, a common room, kitchen, laundry room - But all of it is ruined by people. Party people shouting at 2am, sticking to social / ethical cliques in the public spaces, general alpha bros who need to flex and start conflict with other shirtless guys because reasons. On several occasions I was woke up by people having arguments around the hostel. If those don't keep you up, the loud, dodgy nature of Darlinghurst outside will.

    Is the common area has a lots of cockroaches. Majority of the people staying here are living in Australia long time and working. Lots of construction workers live here live here! If that’s your thing! Is this place very very cliquish. And lots of 30 year old men playing video games all day! No AC however it wasn’t that hot! Rooms were really really dirty with long-term tenants!

    Staff tries their best. Very nice and friendly people. Too many people staying longterm. So it’s very hard to socialise. Cockroaches in the bathroom, kitchen and at reception. They claim it‘s normal in Australia but it‘s not! They try to clean everything but it‘s not really their fault because it also depends on the people staying there. Toilets wrongly constructed so very hard for a normal or skinny person to get in and out. Showers not working properly.

    Staff were excellent and friendly. However, the bathrooms and communal areas were disgusting. Apparently renovated in 2016 but all the seat material was ripped. Many Spanish and German cliques who were staying there permanently which ruined the atmosphere massively. If you are looking to stay here for a short amount of time, look somewhere else. Highly disappointed with our stay and in particular will remember the two resident rats who live in the hostel.
