Liked: The bar downstairs has $3 drinks, had so many good nights in the bar! Club on the weekend to is pretty good to! The rooms are big and pretty clean! The staff are really lovely! The bathrooms are clean. The atmosphere is always good, a good chill out place at reception with free wifi.

Disliked: The cockroaches. There in the kitchen and we had one in our room but suppose it can't be helped!

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.
