"Very clean! The building is huge so you didn't feel like you could hear your neighbours too much. The coffee in the attached cafe is really good."

Liked: Secure.

Disliked: 10% deposit paid via hostel bookers was then charged again at the hostel who then denied that they had charged me an extra ten percent. Staff were unhelpful and rude. Having read previous reviews which mentioned this as a problem, I was disappointed to see this problem has not been resolved. Staff tried to blame exchange rates and bank card fees for 40 pounds of deposit and refused to accept their mistake despite the additional money charged was exactly ten percent and unable to be explained by any other reason. In terms of the hostel itself the bathrooms are dirty, the rooms were clean although slightly annoying that every guest has to listen to the messages put over the tannoy whenever the hostel is putting on an event. Staff were much less friendly and approachable than any other hostel I have stayed in. The kitchen is too small for the volume of guests. It is secure and safe though and city walks organised were good.

Liked: A lot of transient backpackers and not the usual story with sydney backpackers (working/ looking for work and they don't mix and they take over the whole room) which means it's easier to mingle and the prospects of meeting travelling buddy's. Also good diversity in nationality! If you're only doing a short stay, don't be put off by the price. It's worth it.

Liked: I didn't really get a chance to experience all the things this place offered, but it was ultra-modern, with keycard access to the lifts etc, a decent bar downstairs (gets crazily packed at night), a TV/movie area on one of the floors - if you were here for a while you'd never get bored.

Disliked: It's expensive - but then, it is in the centre of Sydney. No lockers in the room I was in - and some potentially unsavoury characters!

Liked: The location is extremely convenient located across the road from Central station. While the hostel hosts good facilities like a cafe with cheap eats and a bar with the same, good music and chilled vibes, it's also centrally located near Broadway, Chinatown and the foodie cafes in Surry Hills (try Toast on Elizabeth St for breakfast). Rooms were large and felt really secure and we couldn't hear any other room noise or traffic which is a bonus. Would easily reccomend to all ages.

Disliked: Not massive complaints, just a few in our group found the female bathrooms a bit dirty and the mattresses a bit soft. All in all not massive complaints found here.

Liked: I liked the kitchen and the way security worked, only getting onto the floor you were staying on.

Disliked: I was worried there would be a lot of partiers, which they were a lot of people who enjoyed the Sydney night life, and still came into the room quietly.
