Liked: Location was great, price was reasonable for sydney.

Disliked: The bunk beds squeaked, the peoples respect for each other in this hostel is pathetic. Too many drunken people, we has security guards and even policemen coming into the room at 4am, regarding a drunken boy. Just not really acceptable at that time of night. Didn't have one good night sleep in the 3 nights I stayed.

Liked: Really good central location, nice helpful friendly staff, loads of comfy couches to chill out in, massive kitchen, they offer great discounts on some of the more expensive touristy things like the Aquarium, Sydney Tower etc. Rooms are fine too, if you book the girl only dorm you get free towel and toiletries which is nice!

Disliked: I stayed there over Christmas when it was quite busy so there was some noise at night with people partying, mostly just music from the Scary Canary bar next door. Generally it was fine though.

Liked: Central location and travel desk.

Disliked: Lots of disrespectful, impoverished travellers and a very rude staff member at check-in (he was French with an american-sounding accent). Too expensive for what it was. On balance, apart from the location, I would not recommend this place.
