    I love staying at The Original Backpackers Hostel in Potts Point. Beautifully maintained with clean, modern bathrooms and the bedrooms have extras like a tv in some rooms, fresh towels, fresh quality sheets, a mini fridge, coffee tea, a safe and storage and lockers. The staff take pride in their work and it shows when they organise days out like to go and watch the sunset, exercise days and BBQ's and pancakes on Sunday's. All the guests that stay there are extremely friendly and we all get along

    Booked 2 nights, ended up staying nearly 2 weeks. Great value for what you get, cleaners always working throughout COVID as well. You also get a great free breakfast - real coffee and usually like a sandwich or something which was unexpected but quite nice. Lastly the management was great - super chilled. Good location - where most of the hostels in Sydney seem to be. Would stay again.

    Great hostel that I look forward to returning to when Sydney is restriction-free. Really good value private ensuite room right next to the common area (did make it a bit noisy at night, although ppl were meant to move inside after 10) and the powerful fan was enough despite the heat. Social atmosphere, friendly staff, BYO drinks and chat with everyone at night - many people stay up here drinking all night either out the front or in TV room which is a little odd but not a problem (gives options).

    Very cheap rate and good location for seeing Sydney (2 mins from king cross station) Strange vibes with lots of long term stay at the moment but that is to be expected in Covid times

    It was alright. I am not sure why it’s rated so highly. It was old, run down, not that clean, noisy till late, and the check in counter times were very limited and the guy checking me in was creepy. Second inappropriate to invite your friend when showing a female by herself around in a private suite. Plus a could drop my key back but no one was there to have my deposit returned. All in all would not return. Much nicer hostels for the same price elsewhere.

    Our experience was horrible we booked for long time in advance and when we arrived at 8pm at night time they say that accidentally someone was in our room. It was a horrible experience as we have to solve our matter at night time. The cleaninnes is terrible our room have many Cockroashes. The price is very expensive for the hostel , I will not recommend to stay in This hostel.
