Liked: Terrific location, easy to get everywhere. There are a lot of steps to climb but it's worth it. Good pubs and restaurants close by. Good food on offer at the hostel. Very clean. Large rooms. Lovely staff. Plenty of information on public transport, tours and things to do. Good airport shuttle service.

Disliked: It's a small thing, but the doors could really do with 'soft close'hinges - you can hear a lot of comings and goings late at night and early in the morning.

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

Liked: Big rooftop balcony, cinema and tv room, ensuite bathrooms in rooms but best of all the location. Right near the harbour and major travel links to city sites!!

Disliked: Nothing!! But make sure to take the train to the airport or allow 1-1.5 hours by bus!!

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.
