Liked: Location

Disliked: No fan or aircon in room, room was absolutely boiling all weekend horrendous conditions to try and get ready when attending a festival. Cockroaches in the room, 3 on the first night when told receptionist her response was 'well it is sydney!' Have stayed in many hostels and had no cockroaches in the room. Said she would get us some bug spray never brought us any. Airport shuttle never turned up for my friend so she had to go get the train instead hardly a reliable service, good job didn't pay up front

Liked: The hostel is in a great location on the corner of two main roads. It's really close to Town Hall station and Darling Harbour, and Central is probably only 10-15 minutes walk away. It is also right across from the World Square shopping centre. I walked everywhere from the hostel. There is a lift to access all levels, and I loved that there was swipe card access to each room and to the female bathroom. There were two lockers under each bed.

Disliked: I stayed in Room 501 which is directly over the street. There are no fans or airconditioning in the room so the only ventilation comes from the open windows which are directly over the street. There is also a nightclub in the hostel on levels 1 and 2 on Friday and Saturday nights, so it is quite noisy in the room. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend asking for a room away from the street.

Liked: Location above all else, but the way the staff treat you is beyond expectation easily.

Disliked: Only thing would be the shower head on the far left in the third floor bathroom, could use tightening.

Liked: Rooms clean, bathrooms clean and showers very good. Large kitchen facility. My roommates were quiet. The outside noise was there but I was too tired to notice. There is a lift to take you up to the rooms.

Disliked: Can't think of anything.

Liked: Very friendly and attractive staff and easy of luggage drop off and location.

Disliked: Other guests ruined it. Sharing a dorm I expect some noise and people coming and going but when a group of lads bang on the door for 30 mins at 1am and then 3am and then talk for an hour and then snoor for the rest of the night...literally made the stay worse than a prisoner of war camp with sleep depriving tourture!!

Liked: Enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Friendly staff, they were very helpful on check in and with general knowledge of events happening in the city. Free wifi in the common area, maybe it could be made available in the whole building. Room was very spacious, clean and neat. Also there is a huge full length mirror in the room.

Disliked: Disliked the noise from the nightclub on the weekends. No wifi available in the whole building.
