Liked: The hostel is located in an interesting historical Sydney building and quite close to Sydney Downtown. If you like partying and hype around you, this hostel is exactly the right one for you.

Disliked: When we arrived in our room we couldn't even figure out which beds had been reserved for us and it looked as if all beds were already occupied fortunately the staff was quite obliging and helped us to solve the problem. The hostel has a pretty loud atmosphere and some of the staff members sometimes seemed a bit arrogant .

Liked: Perfect location right next to Central station! Also, a lot of focus on security and cleanliness. Rooms were VERY quiet, despite noise in the hallway.

Disliked: Weird to say, but almost "too fancy". Key cards were always not working and had to be replaced, but worth it for the security.

Liked: Staff all great and really helpful as they have a great knowledge of the city. This was my first hostel in Australia and I found it a great place to meet new people. When it was bad weather staff went out of their way to arrange activities which was greatly appreciated. Free city walk was fun and a good way to get to know the city.

Disliked: Would have liked free or cheaper wifi as this was overpriced in my opinion. Kitchen area gets very busy and a bit messy duing peak times.
