Samuel Pack thinks…

"We had easy check in and a decent private double that even had a mounted TV. The fan wasn't working but they replaced it right away upon telling them. We were given towels and the showers had plenty…"

Liked: Cheap for what you get and the location. Generally a very good place to stay in this price bracket. Was not too loud, basic but clean, great food = its on the edge china town, Very close to transport, staff were good and polite, comes with basic breakfast. May not appeal to people used to staying in ultra mod "flashpackers" but very good if you dont want to pay extra for the decor.

Disliked: Ty left no negative feedback.

Liked: The room size is big and offer adequate space for us.

Disliked: There is no lift which it is a bit difficult if we need to carry a heavy luggage. The number of toilet and bathroom is not enough, so we always need to wait. It is recommend to separate the bathroom and toilets for men and women.

Liked: It was cheaper than other hostels, and was in a great location for my one night stay being 5 mins walk from the train station. It is also right next door to Paddy's Market and Chinatown. The room was large enough for my needs with high ceilings and nice clean bedding.

Disliked: There was a weird feeling around the whole place, and other backpackers seemed to speak very little to each other, nevermind engaging with me! There are a lot of rules, like in any hostel, but these seemed to be enforced with extra vigour, which made me cautious about the clientele staying there long-term. It's a long climb up those stairs with your luggage!

Liked: free breakfast (toast, jam, cereals, te and coffee). Right in the city and next to Paddys market. Much space in the rooms. Clean. One computer with free internet (enough for this small hostel)

Disliked: Have to pay for the wifi, high stairs - hard to get up heavy bags. Have to pay for luggage room (2 dollar).

Liked: Central location, large room (stayed in 6 bed female room), had windows that could open, the complimentary breakfast

Disliked: The stairs - it was difficult carrying heavy luggage upstairs. Could hear the traffic, but because it's so central that's to be expected. There are not enough bathrooms/toilets for all the guests so you will have to time your showers etc well.

Liked: Close to Market City and Central Train Station

Disliked: Very far walk from the warf. Beds were very loud and squeaky. Although a cleaning crew came in everyday to clean, their cleaning was very superficial. There was disgusting amounts of dust under beds and on top of everything. There are only 2 bathrooms and 3 showers per floor.

Liked: It was clean and safe in the double room. Toilet and Shower room cleaned every morning and was hot. Also digital tv in room made it easy to chill out of an evening. Travelling in a couple on a budget would stay here again!

Disliked: There was no atmosphere, if travelling alone would have never met anyone as communal areas were very small. Staff were not very helpful. Room was cold of a night as poor windows (noisy) and linen was not changed over 3 days.

Liked: Location - proximity to Central Station, Monorails, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay. The staff were very nice.

Disliked: The toilets didn't look like they'd been cleaned that day. I was a bit apprehensive to use the shower because of this. The luggage room needs to be locked at all times. Being in the heart of the city it is expected to be noisy, I think there needs to be a bit of insulation to stop it being so noisy.

Liked: Great location near the train station and darling harbour. Big roomy dorms, large flatscreen tv in kitchen/eating area. Good sized kitchen and always very clean.

Disliked: Had to pay for wi-fi, not really any area to hang out so therefore not much of an atmosphere, maybe I was just there on a quiet weekend...if there is one in Sydney
