Customer review

21 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good value and free internet, except there were only 2 computers (always full) since they're upgrading. Breakfast is a joke, half a loaf of bread, 1/4 jar of jam (no knife) and corn flakes. And it's a $20 deposit for plates. But it's cheap, secure, rooms were clean and overall nicer than other hostels we've stayed at in the area.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

19 January 2010 talese would recommend this property

Liked: Bathrooms are brand new. Hostel is being done up. The staff do a thorough job cleaning the place but until they completely do it up, there is only so much they can do. I dont think there is better value for money in Sydney.The only real problem apart from the age of the hostel is that some rooms are not well ventilated and one room is next to all the noise.

Liked: Had a very pleasant stay here. There were renovations going on but it didn't cause us any problems and the improvements seem really good. Only 1/2 hour walk to the city which was great. Cleanliness was also very good and they seemed to do daily cleaning which was much appreciated. Would come back and stay again. Thanks!
