14 October 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great location, really close to Central Station and Chinatown. Good to have a laundry facility on each floor.

Disliked: The usual late night drunken noise you get in most hostels. The soundproofing isn't great in the rooms so you can hear pretty much everything that happens in the corridor. We'd a wifi hotspot right outside our room, so were subjected to other people's Skype calls at all hours. Music was quite loud at reception, which is a pain if you're trying to use Skype on the computers there. Kitchen and bathrooms could be a bit cleaner.

Liked: It was a clean modern Hostel with modern music, many activities, friendly staff and friendly backpackers. I liked the securety cameras that made me feel safer and the lookers in each room.

Disliked: I wanted to make a phonecall, there are 2 phones at the entry hall for use but it was really loud especially the music there. When I asked for other phones one staffmember assured me that I would find one on each floor - but there are none anymore only red phones and they are not for public use. She was telling me no Im wrong she has been on every floor and there are some - she was wrong no one Ive asked from those floors knewed what she was talking about. I would appreciate it if there would exist phones!

Liked: All round very good hostel. Good rooms. Nice areas to relax. Big kitchen. Excellent location.

Disliked: Lack of powerpoints in the rooms. Stayed in an 8 room and we had only two power points so charging smartphones at night was a problem. Toaster didnt work in the kitchen but other than those two things no complaints

Liked: Easy to find.

Disliked: Ramshackle & disappointing. Secure - yes, so much so that more times than not I could not get into my own room, Constant nickle & diming - extremely inconvenient & expensive internet connection that also seemed to be be slowest in Sydney. Can I leave my suitcase in some place secure for an hour after I check out? Sure! - in their pay lockers for 5 more dollars.

Liked: Very good club attached in the basement. Nice cafe. Very clean and modern bathrooms and toilets. Fast and reliable internet (though not for free, but relatively cheap, 19 AUSD for 3 days). Clean rooms.

Disliked: Windows could not be opened. There was not even a sink in the room. The hostel charged for nearly everything, even 20p for the printout of the boarding pass. Though that is not hurting, it just does not make the friendliest impression.
