    It's okay for the price but when you make the reservation they don't let you know that they're charging you a fee for payments with cards and that they don't have wifi available. The room was okay and the kitchen too but it's a workers hostel so if you plan to meet people/other travellers is not the best place, but they do have the lowest prices on Sydney.

    Quite ok but you had to pay for the Wifi (in seven weeks that was the first hostel where wifi wasn't included) and it did not say that before booking. Other the place was ok.

    Private rooms very small and with very bad smell. Bathrooms didn’t seemed clean for a while: showers were full with hair, toilet paper everywhere and you couldnt keep you toiletries dry at all. The vibe hotel next door asked only 10$ more and provided a delicious free breakfast, huge private room, amenities, towels etc. Harder to meet people but soooo much cleaner and worth the money

    Front reception were lovely but the room was dirty when I arrived and the window had its latch ripped off and the wood was rotting around it. Bathrooms smelt vile and had fluids of sorts smeared against the walls

    I've stayed at a lot of budget hostels and this is by far the least livable. The rooms are hot and cramped and honestly you couldn't pay me to stay there again.

    First thing when we arrived, the staff couldn't find our bookings - we booked via this website. Waited a long time finally got the rooms - different from what we booked for. The second thing is the bar downstairs plays loud music until 4am every day - not a good place to stay if you wish to sleep at night. Thirdly, a construction site is right next door. They start to work with machines at 6am. We couldn't sleep at all!! Lastly, the toilets and baths are so dirty!! Won't stay here again.
