Liked: Seriously great location, close to the walking tours and free shuttle and all the good stuff in Sydney. The staff were all really nice and offered up heaps of advice on what to see and do around town. The hostel has a bar downstairs which was seriously fun over the weekend! I'll definitely be back :)

Liked: Location is OK. Laundry is OK.

Disliked: Hostel stinks, probably due to the grubby carpeting. Very loud on friday and saturday because they use the lounge as public disco. Thus also no possibility to sit and relax in friday and saturday evening. No normal seating accommodation in the kitchen. WiFi only works (quite slow) in lounge - thus also not friday/saturday evening. Saw little cockroaches in the lounge..

Liked: Good location, bus stop right round the corner with a free shuttle to circle quay. The free walking tour also begins down the road, and was fantastic. Private room extremely basic, but as to be expected.

Disliked: We were completely unaware that the hostel itself actually becomes a night club on Fridays and Saturdays, meaning you can't really use the common areas from 7pm, and have problems trying to store your luggage if you're getting one of the later buses. It was very unusual having bouncers on the door to the lounge! Unfortunately this means that noise is a big issue.

City break

Liked: Great location. Cheap drinks at the bar. 24 hour reception. Rooms are a great size.

Disliked: The room I was in was very noisy, even with earplugs in it was very loud. Probably not the best hostel to visit if you are alone and want to meet people, the common room isnt very social and the bar is a bit clubby (only Friday and Saturdays) so would be hard to meet anyone if you are alone. They do have events on different nights though so that might make it easier to meet people.

Liked: Great location, good vue for money. Nice dorms. Good for partying as we were there for Mardi Gras. Really recommend if you're after a fun time and happy to get what you pay for.

Disliked: Sleazy men on the dance floor that wouldn't leave us girls alone. I had to physically prevent a guy from kissing my friend after she had said no an was backing away from him.

Liked: Very good location, bathrooms were very clean and felt very safe there during my stay with keycards needed for floor, bedroom, and gendered bathroom access.

Disliked: A bit noisy if you aren't staying for night-life seeing as there is a nightclub downstairs and lot's of traffic/people around. But if you are there for nightlife, this isn't really a negative.
