Liked: The staff members were very friendly and helpful.Toilets and showeres were numerous and I did not have any problem/waiting using the facilities.

Disliked: the place seemed to be a little bit understaffed.In busy hours there must be at least two people serving at the reception.Cleaning chores should have been more regular.The checking out time is too Early.Some of the shower heads and basin taps were broken.The cafe did not have a good variety of foods to offer.

Liked: Its a great place to stay while ur journey to the wonderful city of Sydney, located in the centre of the city, so u can easily get to any city attraction. hostels stuff was very friendly, prices incredibly low, and the the hostels cafe is serving cheap and tasty food. U will never feel sorry if u choose this place to stay !

Disliked: Unfortunately i lived on the last floor and girls shower was being repaired, but there was no problem cause i could use the one on the other floor :) but it was the only small disadvantage,
