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.
