Liked: Great staff, more than helpful 24/7. couldn't have a better location, not noisy if your staying on any floor apart from the one above the club. will be staying again soon 100%

Disliked: NO WIFI - the wifi only works in the lounge and i measured it at 3mbps, my phone was faster. cockroaches in kitchen and room, but doesn't matter where you stay you will get that.

Liked: The location is great, you can walk to Darling Harbour in 5 min and just across the street is a shopping center with a Coles and a pharmacy.

Disliked: There are cockroaches everywhere in the kitchen. Just below the Hostel there is a club and on weekends you can literally feel the beat when you are in bed. If you want to sleep on weekends, this hostel is definitely not the right place. There is no Wifi in the rooms but in the common area at the reception. So no Wifi in bed.
