Liked: Staff were very helpful and polite and handled any problem with ease. When we arrived we had an issue with an online booking which the receptionist resolved, making sure my partner and I got a room together. We then were given a dorm with a balcony which is a bonus. Rooms were spotless and very spacious. The kitchen had every pot pan and utensil needed to cook any desired meal. The dining area is bright and very well set out making it easy to relax and enjoy your food, or communicate. A huge bonus was FREE wifi, was very happy with this. Floor one also has a games room and computers to use. If you go up to the 9th floor there is a rooftop with BBQ, perfect for sunset beers and there is a sauna and swimming pool. First hostel I've seen with such facilities. After a few horrible places we have stayed this was a breath of fresh air. Would definitely recommend staying here and will be returning in the near future.

Disliked: Can't pick a fault, card stopped working once but that's no big issue.

Liked: The staff was quite friendly.

Disliked: Some rates are really expensive like internet. You don't know all the prices before just when you come there and you don't have any option so you should pay a full rate.

Liked: Central location next to the train station and bus stops and close to lively Chinatown and George street, about 30 min walk to the harbour and Opera house. Clean, big dorm room. Nice common areas to hang out and meet other travelers. Organized city tour was very good and staff were friendly. I didn't go to see the rooftop terrace.

Disliked: No free wifi and no breakfast but then again you won't find those in most of the hostels in Australia. No free luggage storage. Pricey compared with many other places.

Liked: Pool and was clean shame about the groups of children

Disliked: Full of kids, went down stairs to the common room to Skype home and on both days had around 30+ kids running around. Also there is quite literally no atmosphere, which is fine if you don't like to speak to people or have fun but for your average traveller it's rather odd.

Liked: Clean, good showers, comfortable bed, easy to find. The cafe downstairs has free internet. Just buy a coffee.

Disliked: Being close to the station means that a lot of people only stay one or two nights as they're on their way somewhere. Which leads to it rather lacking in atmosphere, however I was one of them so can't complain too much.
