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.

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.
