"Location! It was just perfect. Walking distance to everything you need as well as some of the great tourist traps! The Kitchen was busy but it was well organised. Everyone actually cleans up properly after themselves…"

Liked: This is great for cheap central accommodation in Sydney. The rooms are quite small and the bathrooms are sometimes a little overcrowded but overall I would definitely recommend this place to other travellers coming through Sydney.

04 March 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff were all amazingly friendly and helpful! Great location right next to central station with secure in-room lockers. Great idea having charging outlets inside the lockers and giving each bed it's own light! Not a party hostel, so it's fairly quiet, but it's also not a great place to meet lots of people. All aorund very good value for money!
