Liked: I LOVED this hostel! It is right on Pitt St. which is the main road for all shopping, grocery stores, pharmacies, anything really and it also leads directly to the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. The hostel has different events every night which are all free and they go to local bars and when you are with the hostel you get in free and get a few free drinks. Also they do a BBQ at the beach and do beach walks and city tours all for free. It's a great way to meet people. I stayed in "The Church" which is 32 people and I really liked it. It was a great way to meet people and actually quite spacious and I never felt like it wasn't safe. Some people have lived in this room for over a year and still love it. There are people from all over the world and its really cool to see all the cultures come together. The kitchen area and TV room are really nice and a great way to hang out with people at any hour of the day or night. I'd definitely recommend this hostel above any other!!!!!

Liked: Great place to meet people and great location. The lifts are worked way beyond capacity so you end up waiting 10mins for a full lift (they try to encourage you to use the stairs but they aren't very well sign posted). Rooms are small with little natural light compared to other places I've stayed in Sydney

Liked: Decent hostel, Very good location. If you want a good nights sleep every night dont stay here. can get very noisey and some people who stay here are very selfish and ignorant to the other people who are staying, expect to be woken by drunk idiots who dont even stay in your room. other than this you get what you pay for really, dont expect the world, but definatley better than other similar priced hostels in Sydney.
