Liked: It was perfect for us as yew were just passing through. The staff at the desk were amazing! We got a room upgrade for no extra cost. The rooms were clean and safe.

Disliked: The only issues we ran into were the shower head is pretty low down on the wall so you end up crouching a bit. And when we went to wash some clothes, all 4 dryers were out of order since March.

Liked: Range of rooms available. Luggage storage before and after check-out.Friendly staff on check in.

Disliked: Male staff members making inappropriate comments about a group of young female guests within mine and other's earshot.Could be cleaner.Shoddy elevator.Though individual rooms have key access, security seemed lax. Seemed like anyone could walk in and get upstairs or say they had luggage stored and be handed the key - I wasn't asked to provide any id or anything when I asked staff who'd never seen me before.

Liked: Staff was friendly, Location is good, shopping center/ supermarket just across the street, short walk to Central Station.

Disliked: No lockers in rooms, stains on linen, room & bathroom very unclean. Power plugs in bathroom only so you had to leave your phone in there if you wanted to charge it. Slowest elevator in the world. You can stay at much better hostels in Sydney for the same price.
