Liked: Excellent location, modern accommodation combined with history and culture of the site and value for money.

Disliked: Main entrance rarely locked/closed so therefore swipe card access to gain entry into the building and individual areas of the building was rarely required.

Liked: the view from the roof top terrace was great, and was a short distance to the harbour. the kitchen area in the communal area was well equipped and clean

Disliked: came from the airport having been on an international flight, but it was before the checking in time we had to put our luggage in the lockers which charged by the hour we were a family of 7 so lots of cases and hand luggage and quite a few lockers!!

Liked: Great place. One of the best hostels I've ever been to.

Disliked: Atmosphere, safety, cleanliness, view from the building to the harbor. It even has an identity of its own. It's very interesting in terms of architecture and is built on top of archeological findings which can be enjoyed from the hostel.

Liked: Location is fantastic. I always felt very safe here.

Disliked: Early check in seemed impossible. It costs to keep bags in lockers whilst you wait to check in and the cost adds up quickly. Decoration was very factory like. They could make much more out of the wonderfully located roof terrace.

Liked: 24 hour reception/newly built/modern facilities

Disliked: hard to find something to dislike. I would suggest a more detailed description on the walking directions from circular quay as there are quite a few steps/streets to navigate (esp with backpack etc. in tow) perhaps pointing out a few landmarks as a guide.

Liked: Location was good, near to the rocks, circular quay, harbour bridge etc. Felt more like a budget hotel cos there was no mingling with other guests.

Disliked: Staff was unhelpful. Couldn't answer my queries on directions or maps or any food suggestions. There was also no free luggage storage provided after checking out, we had to pay to use the lockers provided. This should be a minimum service provided to guests FOC.
