Liked: The people, the staff, Especially the brunette (girl) that worked in the lobby the day we arrived ;) Very cute (All the guys at hostel agreed). A great place to stay a couple of days if you like a social atmosphere.

Disliked: No power sockets at top bed, and no bed lights.

Liked: Everything about my stay was good, the property has a really fun and friendly vibe about it. There are so many oppurtunities to meet people and always something going on. I can see why guests come for a week and stay for months. The staff should be proud of themselves and are a credit to the hostel. Keep up the good work!

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The staff and the guests make you feel at home here. It is quiet and relaxing and you can get away from everything by chilling out in the patio garden while still being close to the city.The staff are really accommodating and make you feel like one of the group by organising nights out and joining in on the activities.

Disliked: The price could come down a little but still I am willing to pay for the relaxing atmosphere here.

Hi John, Thanks for the cool review! You were here during peak season which only lasts just over a week so that's why it might have been a bit pricey for you but it's like that at all hostels around Sydney during peak season. Our prices drop after this peak week :-)
