Booked a stay for two nights at this hostel for a 6 person shared dorm. Counter staff were friendly and helpful during the check in process. Got a room on level 5 which was reasonably well away from the traffic noises. Room was spacious but even though a big locker was provided - the mates in the room weren't nicer...

While on my WHV i stayed in 790 for a little while, nearly three months to be precise, and made some great friends and memories here. The rooms are basic but you have a big locker and I found the beds quite spacious for single bunks. The bathrooms are ok, the floors can get a bit slippy at shower times...

Hey, Thanks for the positive feedback about your second home ;) We appreciate all the good things you have said although Im upset that you found our staff to be a little rude towards the end, I will remind everyone to always keep that smile on their dial. In regards to rates, being in Sydney over the summer period rates...

Although the staff is really helpful and easy ging this place is def not worth any recommendations. The beds require some serious maintenance as every single move on the lower or upper bunks leads to tremendous swings which make you feel that you are sleeping in a hammock. The common area referred to as the kitchen is apparently in the...

When I first arrived here, my room provided was an extremely small 6 bed dorm room. It had no natural light and no other women in it. Reception was quick to swap me to a nicer room. The next day my room had a deep clean..which it probably needed. I stayed for a week and would probably stay again. make...

Stayed here 3 nights in a 4 bedded mixed dorm, everybody was friendly, bathrooms on each floor and they are very spacious. Dorms were clean, so was the bedding.

Great location - right next to central station with trains to every corner of Sydney. Friendly staff, bathrooms were kept clean. Kitchen was ALWAYS a mess but I know this is also responsibility of the clients staying there (have some respect guys!).
