I stayed at the 4 bed dorm for 4 nights. The staff is very nice and the location is almost perfect. Considering the price, the bed was also fine. Cleanliness was just ok in general. However, the common area is very small and wi-fi does not work in most of the rooms. Kitchen is also very very small, just enough...

We stayed here in March, to attend the Royal Easter Show. We were 3 adults & 1 child. We were told that the Family Room was on first floor. No......there was 9 flights of stairs, to our room, on the top floor. Its pretty old, room was clean. However the shared facilities were disgusting. Shower Curtain was mouldy around the...

I was so impressed with this hostel. For the price it was very clean, with incredibly helpful staff, TV and fridge in our room, comfy beds, working, warm and spacious showers. It even has free toast and spreads available for when you come home ravenous post wine. The staff were so accommodating and helped with our every need. Thank you...

Stayed for a night on the way to New Zealand in Feb 2016. Tried calling about 5 times the day before to ask about what to do when arriving at 7am to leave our luggage, left multiple messages with no response- finally on the 6th call got through and found out what to do. Wouldn't be great if you needed...

Stayed in a double room for a week. Was everything we could have wanted and more. The location is the best you could want in Sydney. 5 minutes from the Central Station and right in the city. The staff were so helpful, giving directions for transport and giving us advice for where to go at night. Facilities are great, a...

Nice hostel really close to the cbd, clean, small and comfy. the wifi isn't really good but the staff is very kind. There are not so many bathrooms and sometimes you have to struggle but that's ok. Laundry very cheap. Recommended

We stayed in a triple room so can't speak for the shared dorms but the room was cosy and had everything we needed including TV with sports channels. Staff were really nice and kept asking if we had enough blankets as it was pretty cold. Location is very central and perfect if you like Thai, Chinese or Japanese food.
