                The proximity to central station and useful places such as a supermarket about 5 blocks away. The staff were friendly and provided directions to locations that I needed to reach.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Reasonably priced hostel in a great location in Sydney with decent facilities

                Smell from toilets in common area

              • Single
                7.4

                Near to all visitor's sites and safe

                Will look good if it is newly renovated.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Its location is very convenient especially for those who like to get around Sydney cbd. The place is also reasonably quiet at night to those who like a good night rest. The best feature of the hostel is the rooftop terrace where you can drink beers whilst enjoying the view of Sydney at night. Overall, our stay there was very enjoyable.

              • Single
                7.8

                The staff was great. Great kitchen/common area. Good amount of electric outlets. Plenty of hot water. Right next to Central Station.

                Water pressure close to nil. Bathrooms tended to smell. However, for the price a great stay in Sydney.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                Very good location and friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. When booking we were very price sensitive and sought cheap accomodation - the hotel was a perfect price and could not find fault on any of the facilities.

              • Single
                2.4

                very dirty, smelled terrible, very cold in the room with air conditioning to the max, I got sick of being in this hotel, my worst Experience "

              • Single
                8.2

                Staff were excellent. Very helpful and easygoing. The room was surprisingly clean and comfortable. Not too loud at night. Breakfast provided as described.

                Shared shower rooms could be cleaner. Wi-fi Internet extremely slow and often impossible to even check mail. Lift is slow. Space for personal luggage really depends on who else is in the room. Many long-stayers tend to be really dirty and messy.

              • Single
                8.2

                Very helpful staff - great position.

                Although I knew this was a budget option I was very disappointed that the television in the room was so small and old and didn't have even all the normal channels.

              • Single
                7.4

                It is the best location with the suitable price.

                WIFI cannot cover in this building. Moreover, when I use it at ground floor, it cannot surf internet because speed is very very slow. Speedtest.net cannot report the speed so it recommends to change new connection!

              • Single
                5.4

                The price is OK but the faciliies are really old. The carpet are smelly in the public area.

                9.6

                Breakfast included, cooking facilities, coffee and tea all day (would be nice with milk provided) and family bathroom is big.

                It would be nice if the bunk beds were not too squeaky and slow internet service.

                Glad to have my own room for a reasonable price...for Sydney

                Room was next to the stairwell and very noisy. Could hear everyone up and down stairs as well as the other doors in the corridor slamming all through the night.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                the comfy beds, large living space and kitch as well as the close proximity to all attractions

                being moved around so often and the smell of the ground level
