Liked: Very central, about 400m from Central station so very easy to get to from the airport. Lockers for each bed and reading light were nice as well. Also liked that internet was fairly cheap ($1/hour for wifi). Front reception staff were very friendly.

Disliked: Common room was ok but could get crowded quickly for a hostel this size. Also, the place is almost half full of people who live there, so it would be nice if there were more actual travellers staying there.

Liked: We enjoyed the friendly staff and the location close to central station and walkable to many Sydney attractions.

Disliked: This is a typical backpackers' place and seems to attract the typical backpacker, which we have nothing against. However, as we were on a honeymoon of sorts and not the typical backpacker, we felt a little out of our element.
