Liked: The hostel has free wifi, evening activities; including movie nights and deals at some local backpacker bars in Sydney. The hostel staff are very friendly and helpful, having someone around 24 hours is also a great help. The laundry facilities are very good, and all backpackers are given free washing powder.

Disliked: The kitchen could do with a lick of paint, and the bathrooms on the 3rd and 4th floor could be updated to the quality of the 5th floor.

Liked: The location was great, very close to the free bus in Sydney, coles is just across the street and it is possible to walk to most places without it taking too long. I was surprised how quiet it was in the large room with 18 beds at night during the week, it was mostly the traffic outside that made the noise. All in all it`s a good place to stay if you want somewhere cheap that has a good location.

Disliked: Cleanliness.

30 June 2012 Evelien would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was very friendly and happy to help, it's located in the middle of the city what is great. I had the opportunity to join an acitivity wich all who wanted could join to a local place where there was free pizza and other snacks for bigger groups + a drink. Later there was also a party. A good idea to bring guests together. Also the room I was in had an amazing view towards the city

Disliked: I wished it had a breakfast opportunity. Then the price probably would also rise but a very basic breakfast would've worked as well. Also the rooms lack curtains or any other type of shade and the windows are very thin so the busy street does get into your room

Liked: Clean rooms, comfy beds (for a hostel) Staff were really nice and helpful

Disliked: I really quite liked this hostel, however as far as atmosphere goes, if your looking for a party hostel, on a Monday night it wasn't really happening. They did offer a place to go out and have a drink, which had a good atmosphere. And I've been told the weekend bar is pretty busy and good.

Liked: The free Wi-Fi is a must for any backpacker - few hostels in Sydney offer this service, which pretty much made up my mind for me! The rooms and kitchen have recently been painted, which really adds to the warm atmosphere of the place. The staff seem genuinely interested in you as a person, not just another number to check in, which is great! The common room is comfortable and spacious, not to mention the seriously cheap bar on the first level. Can't go wrong with $3 drinks!

Disliked: That I couldn't stay longer!

Liked: Good location. Beds were clean.

Disliked: Room of 18 beds smelled like beer, carpet was wet. Bed was clean though.Good value for money if you just need a place to stay. The hostel also has two bars so it's probably a good time on that note.
