Liked: The roof top terrace is really nice. the dorm rooms are spacious and cleam

Disliked: Could do with a bigger TV room. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, but one was quite rude and unhelpful. But you probably get that everywhere

20 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Really great location. Clean well thought out facilities. It did feel expensive for a hostel but for the price vs location in Sydney, it is very competitive. It has everything you would expect from a good hostel.

Disliked: Very picky I know....but it feels a bit soulless for a hostel. It has a clinical atmosphere and feels like its all business. This would not put me off returning however.

Liked: Spectacular site with unbeatable view in most central location and value for money. Very quiet even close to highway. Nice people of all ages. No party location. Spaceous rooms with perfect electricity - have your own loading as well in the locker as close to your bed with own reading lights. Very well tought in plannig. Very friendly staff.

Disliked: Terrace could be open for sunrise, not only from 07.00am to 9.30pm. A bit disappointing that the WFi did not work at all. So many steps down to other WiFi places were to do.

Liked: You get what you pay for, and so while this hostel is more expensive it's clean, safe, new and, unlike some hostels, is not full of drunked partiers. Staff are nice and the location/view is great. Highly recommended.

Disliked: Internet is expensive.

Liked: Good, clean, but lacking any character/atmosphere. Good place to base yourself from to see the sights - so was fine for a couple of days, but not a long-term option really.

Disliked: No real atmosphere. Plus the price is pretty strong considering you are ONLY getting a bed and a view for that...
