Liked: The location was great, and the facility was also very good! I liked the paintings on the wall.

Disliked: They did not have enough catlery in the kitchen, so I could not find a folk in busy time.

Liked: The dorms, bathrooms and kitchen areas were all clean. I had a comfortable stay and I feel the price was fair. Most of the staff were quite friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I felt it lacked many of the facilities that the nearby competitors have. It is by far the least well equipped of the hostels in that small area on the corner of George/Pitt Street as other ones have bars, clubs, pool tables etc.To be fair it is also a couple of dollars cheaper than those places but it really is only a couple. I got a room in Wake Up for $34 and it is so much better than 790 on George where I paid $30. I found the atmosphere pretty bad and unsociable. It is not a great environment for making new friends as everyone seemed to know each other already and wouldn't have a conversation with you unless they knew you. There were no events organised by the hostel to meet people unlike the nearby competitors.

Liked: Good location. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice building layout. Plenty of bathrooms.

Disliked: The downstairs lounge could do with a bit of modernising to really make this a top hostel but that's not really an issue.

Liked: Great location, but nothing else.

Disliked: We were disappointed with the level of dirt/gross things on bathroom walls. The kitchen was bearable, but the utensils and amenities were not the cleanest. Internet kept disconnecting and slow.
